From an ancient Holy Saturday homily, on the tradition of the harrowing of hell, Jesus speaking to Adam:
I slept on the cross and a sword pierced my side for you who slept in paradise and brought forth Eve from your side. My side has healed the pain in yours. My sleep will rouse you from your sleep in hell. The sword that pierced me has sheathed the sword that was turned against you.
