Genesis 2:21-24 New International Version

21  So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs[1] and then closed up the place with flesh. 22  Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib[2] 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; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man." 24  That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
