"Take me down from the ass, for that which is in me presses to come forth."
Joseph, replying, said:
"Whither shall I take thee, for the place is desert?"
Then said Mary again to Joseph:
"Take me down, for that which is within me mightily presses me."
Joseph then took her down from off the ass, and he found there a cave and put her into it.
Joseph then left Mary in the cave, and started toward Bethlehem for a midwife, whom he found and brought back with him. When they neared the spot a bright cloud overshadowed the cave.
