2:18 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. 1 I will make a companion 2 for him who corresponds to him.” 3 2:19 The Lord God formed 4 out of the ground every living animal of the field and every bird of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would 5 name them, and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 2:20 So the man named all the animals, the birds of the air, and the living creatures of the field, but for Adam 6 no companion who corresponded to him was found. 7 2:21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep, 8 and while he was asleep, 9 he took part of the man’s side 10 and closed up the place with flesh. 11 2:22 Then the Lord God made 12 a woman from the part he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
