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.
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.
“aThis is now bone of my bones,
And flesh of my flesh;
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.
