Body and Soul…

*

On the sixth day the earth was delivered of Abadam,

the very image of the Spirit conceived in the likeness of a lump of clay.

*

The Spirit breathed life into the clod and Abadam rose to his feet.

*

His head was level with the divine seat in heaven.

*

As he looked about the celestial abode his huge frame

and radiant countenance, so amazed the angels that

they flocked, trembling to the Spirit: “can there be

two divine powers, one in heaven, the other on earth? ”

*

To calm them the Spirit placed its hand upon Abadam,

vastly diminishing his aura and greatly reducing his size.

*

Then it smote Abadam in half and by thus dividing

his nature, the spirit created a second man, the

twin of Abadam whom it named Abadel.

*

The Spirit set the twins on its holy mountain

in the east as custodians of the garden.
