The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field.  But, for Adam, there was not found a helper fit for him.  So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man and, while he slept, took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh.  And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man He made into a woman, and brought her to the man.  Then the man said, “This, at last, is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.  She shall be called ‘Woman’ because she was taken out of Man.”  (Genesis 2.20-23)
