Genesis 2:20-25 (New International Reader's Version)

View In My Bible
20 So the man gave names to all of the livestock. He gave names to all of the birds of the air. And he gave names to all of the wild animals. But Adam didn't find a helper that was right for him. 21 So the LORD God caused him to fall into a deep sleep. While the man was sleeping, the LORD God took out one of his ribs. He closed up the opening that was in his side. 22 Then the LORD God made a woman. He made her from the rib he had taken out of the man. And he brought her to him. 23 The man said, "Her bones have come from my bones. Her body has come from my body. She will be named 'woman,' because she was taken out of a man." 24 That's why a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife. The two of them will become one. 25 The man and his wife were both naked. They didn't feel any shame.
