And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam ...
but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
And the LORD God
caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up
the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman,
and brought her unto the man.
