Dum deambularet dominus ad auram post meridiem clamavit et dixit: Adam, ubi es?
Vocem tuam audivi in paradiso et timui et abscondi me eo quod nudus essem abscondi me.

As the Lord was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, he called ‘Adam, where are you?’
‘I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.’
