New International Version
21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep;(A) and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs[a] and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib[b](B) he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23 The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;(C)
she shall be called(D) ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of man.(E)”
24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united(F) to his wife, and they become one flesh.(G)
