Bible: Genesis 2:21-24

2:21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep, 1  and while he was asleep, 2  he took part of the man’s side 3  and closed up the place with flesh. 4  2:22 Then the Lord God made 5  a woman from the part he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. 2:23 Then the man said,

This one at last 6  is bone of my bones

and flesh of my flesh;

this one will be called 7 woman,’

for she was taken out of 8  man.” 9 

2:24 That is why 10  a man leaves 11  his father and mother and unites with 12  his wife, and they become a new family. 13
