    induced in me a sense of awe and of adoration of the moment

    295.
    The beauty of the whole scene induced in me a sense of awe and of adoration of the moment of its revelation;

    (Human, All Too Human; The Wanderer and His Shadow; translated by R.J. Hollingdale)

    Can we view this sentence in two ways?

    1. ... induced in me a sense of awe and induced in me a sense of adoration of the moment of its revelation.
    2. ... induced in me a sense of awe of the moment of its revelation and induced in me a sense of adoration of the moment of its revelation.
    I have found some similar examples ( And yet I also felt a strange awe of him; this awe of the past can be felt.) COCA

    Thanks.

    To me it means 1. If it was supposed to mean 2, I think the second "of" would have been left out ie. "... induced in me a sense of awe and adoration of ..."
