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;

2 Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man1 when they were created.
15 aDid he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union?1 And what was the one God2 seeking?3 bGodly offspring. So guard yourselves4 in your spirit, and let none of you be tfaithless to the wife of your youth.
4 He answered, t“Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female,
6 But ffrom the beginning of creation, ‘God made them gmale and female.’
