15 Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it.

16 The Lord God acommanded the man, saying, “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely;

17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not 1eat, for in the day that you eat from it ayou will surely die.”

18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; aI will make him a helper 1suitable for him.”

19 aOut of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the 1sky, and bbrought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.

20 The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the 1sky, and to every beast of the field, but for 2Adam there was not found aa helper 3suitable for him.

21 So the Lord God caused a adeep 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 1fashioned into a woman athe rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.

23 The man said,

aThis is now bone of my bones,

And flesh of my flesh;

1She shall be called 2Woman,

Because 1she was taken out of 3Man.”

24 aFor this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.

25 aAnd the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
