18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make him a helper suitable for him.”
19 Out of the ground, the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. Whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all the livestock, to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam[a] there was not found a helper suitable for him.
21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept. Then He took one of his ribs and closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man, He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.
23 Then Adam said,
“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she will be called Woman,
for she was taken out of Man.”
24 Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and be joined to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
25 They were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
