Genesis 2:18–25 (ESV)
18Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”
19Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.
20The 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.
21So 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.
22And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.
23Then 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.”
24Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
25And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
A Little Deeper
Elisabeth Eliot, who went to be with the Lord in 2015, was an author and missionary to the Auca Indians of Ecuador, along with her husband Jim. Remarkably, after the Auca killed her husband, she returned to minister to them. Eliot has written some of the best material I have ever read on what it means to be a woman in way that is biblically faithful and bold, just like she was. Elisabeth was no wall-flower!
Her book, Let Me Be a Woman, was written to her daughter and I highly recommend it. She also wrote a chapter in Piper & Grudem's Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, the whole of which is free as a PDF here.
