As we already mentioned, the district gradually raised in that direction in which they travelled on Paradise. Channels meeting now were wider than what they have left behind. District lifting was almost imperceptible, but in process of ascension «on a mount» flowers becomes more beautiful, and quantity of birds was more and they sang more loudly: it because the couple comes to Paradise centre keeps getting nearer. After the first weeks of a life in Paradise Eve has showed a heightened interest to all surrounding: she asked about inhabitants of Paradise, about paradise mansions, about gold of streets and about Adam's life which he has spent on the earth. Adam has told about mansions, that his mansion unique and that Angels have another mansions. Also that the God abides in halls Imperial where Adam could not be. Adam's mansion (and now and Eve’s) settled down directly in the Eden Garden. About inhabitants of heaven, that is about Angels, Adam a little whatsoever could tell: At that time he (and his wife) yet did not know distinctions among that or other angel did not know and about existence of the Satan. For them Angels were simply inhabitants of heaven, sometimes with them talking. Therefore the paradise couple did not expect any dirty trick from anybody.
Day proceeded. Talking, they have seen ahead bright patches of light and have run in that direction. Leaving the Garden, they have seen the river. The river was unusually pure and light, as a crystal. Having admired the majestic river, Eve has asked, whence it flows.
- In that side, whence it flows, - Adam has pointed out with a hand, - just and the palace of the King (Ps.45:15) that is of the God is located. Out of his throne it also flows, Rev.22:1. In the same direction there is and Paradise middle to which we needed to go very little. I already said to you that was going to visit Paradise centre, but was not in time. However, my place - in the Garden and whatsoever out of the Garden, is unfamiliar to me. In the middle of Paradise and that tree, which fruits the God has forbidden us to eat.
Having taken seat on the bank of the River, a paradise couple long talked with each other. Nothing stirred to their lonely conversation. Eve has pensively inclined the head to Adam on a shoulder and Adam, having embraced Eve, answered her numerous questions. Were among them and such which he could not answer* 43. Some answers he gave inattentively, continuing to think about Eve.
