20 The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the [a]sky, and to every beast of the field, but for [b]Adam there was not found a helper [c]suitable for him.21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place.22 The Lord God [d]fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.23 The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; [e]She shall be called [f]Woman, Because [g]she was taken out of [h]Man.”
24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
6 But from the beginning of creation, Godmade them male and female.7 For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother[a],8 and the two shall become one flesh; so they are no longer two, but one flesh.9 What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”
Mark 10:7Many late mss add and shall cling to his wife
