And, whilst man dwelt in Paradise, God brought before him all living things and commanded him to give names to them all;
and whatsoever Adam called a living soul, that was its name. And He determined also to make a helper for the man: for thus God said,
It is not good for the man to be alone: let us make for him a helper meet for him. For among all the other living things there was not found a helper equal and comparable and like to Adam. But God Himself
cast a trance upon Adam and made him sleep; and, that work might be accomplished from work, since there was no sleep in Paradise, this was brought upon Adam by the will of God; and God
took one of Adam's ribs and filled up the flesh in its place, and the rib which He took He builded into a woman; and so He brought her to Adam; and he seeing (her) said:
This is now bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh: she shall be called woman, because she was taken from her husband.
