|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
21 God put the Man into a deep sleep. As he slept he removed one of his ribs and replaced it with flesh.
21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh.
