20 The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found 1a helper suitable for him.
21 So the LORD God caused a 2deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place.
22 The LORD God fashioned into a woman 3the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.
23 The man said, "4This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man."
24 5For this reason * a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
