The next half of that Homily, that talks about Noah:
41. And Adam lived for a century and a millennium passed. 42.And the sons of Adam corrupted themselves, killing animals for food and drinking wine 43. (For the Prince of Lies had scattered the seeds of the wine-vine throughout the world.) 44. And they worshiped the Prince of Lies, and the angels that drove out Adam as deities besides me. 45. So I sent a soul named Noah to be born and rebuke them. 46. But they did not listen to him, and mocked him and his families. 47. So I told him to build an ark, and take his wife and three sons and their wives on board, 48. And all animals, to service him. 49. He did so, and I promised him that the earth will grow plants afterwards, but the wine-vine will be gone. 49. And he prostrated himself, and boarded the ark, and I sent a deluge, 50. Drowning all corrupt sons of Adam, 51. And quenching the fire that consumed where I made Adam. 52. The deluge was finished, and Noah went to the land where Adam was made, and called it Ta'or 53. (Meaning "Chosen [land]" in the divine language) 54. And he and his sons feasted on the first Saturday night, as Adam did. 55. And he grew vines saying: "These will not get me drunk, so eating them will rectify the sin of Adam. 56. But the Prince of Lies approached him and said "So says Theos, 57 Who I am an angel of, 58. Your thoughts are correct, and I must teach you how to make the grape juice sweet beyond sweet." 59. But Noah refused saying "Maybe you are the Liar, and this will make the juice into wine." 60. And the Liar laughed: "Who heard of such a thing?" 61. And five years passed, and every day the Liar came to Noah. 62. So he [Noah] said: "If you are the Prince of Lies, would you not have given up? 63. Woe to me, for I refused the messenger of Theos. 64. Teach me this method." So the Liar taught him. 65. And I was patient with him, hoping he would realize he was making wine. 66. But he did not realize, and made wine and drank it. 67 And the Prince of Lies said:So says Theos, 68. Now that sweet juice has been made, I desire a sacrifice of a lamb. 69. As Noah was drunk, he listened. 70. And I sent an angel to his sons "Your father has sinned! 71. Take this dew and pour it over his eyes to restore him to his senses." And they did so. 72. And Noah said "Woe to me! 73. Will Theos forgive again? 74. But I spoke to my angels: "A Decree! 75. I will create an uncorruptible soul to guide the sons of Adam and Noah, 76. And I will look into the future, and make in the same instant [as the soul] my Logos, a book, the Theologos." 77. And I had Adam come out of his grave and come to Noah. 78 So Noah said: "Woe to me! 79. Father Adam is here to drag me down to the grave". 79. I spoke to them: "Not so, 80. For have created an uncorruptible soul to guide the sons of both of you, 81. And I have looked into the future, and made in the same instant [as the soul] my Logos, a book, the Theologos. 82. And the soul will come down five times, and on the fifth time my Logos, a book, the Theologos will be with him. 83. And every time he is on Earth, you two will be reincarnated to help him. 84 Except for the first time, so he may reign at first alone" 85. So the two of them bowed. 86 And Adam returned to his grave and Noah lived another century. 87. Thus, a new order was established: That of the Chosen Soul, and my Logos, a book, the Theologos.
