Genesis 1:27; Genesis 2:18; Genesis 2:21-23; Genesis 5:2; Matthew 21:16

27  So God created man in his own image,

in the image of God he created him;

rmale and female he created them.


18 Then the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; nI will make him a helper fit for1 him.


21 So the Lord God caused a qdeep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made1 into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 Then the man said,

This at last is rbone of my bones

and flesh of my flesh;

she shall be called Woman,

because she was staken out of Man.2


Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man1 when they were created.


16 and they said to him, Do you hear what these are saying? And Jesus said to them, Yes; lhave you never read,

mOut of the mouth of ninfants and nursing babies

you have prepared praise?
