It was not good that man should be alone.
God, full of compassion, took action for him.
So from him, God made a gift to give to him.
Bone of his bone, flesh of his flesh,
Out of man, for the man, to the man,
By the wisdom and grace of God,
A proper companion for life, for love.
To complete, not compete, a help that was meet—
Soft and tender alongside his hard and tough.
Brought together to manifest the manifold love—
From the unfathomable treasures of the heart of God.
Precious, lovely, intuitive, soothing, intelligent—Woman…
I praise God for the wonder that is Woman,
An expression of His image, insight, and illustriousness.
I thank Him for my phenomenal woman, my wife Abigal…
God then used the rib that he had taken from the Man to make Woman and presented her to the Man. The Man said, "Finally! Bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh! Name her Woman for she was made from Man." Therefore a man leaves his father and mother and embraces his wife. They become one flesh. Genesis 2:22-24MSG
