Genesis 2:1-25

1 Thus were finished the heaven and the earth and all the arrangement of them. 2 And God finished on the sixth day these his works which he made; and on the seventh day he desisted from all these works of his which he made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it; because on it he rested from all these works of his which God had taken occasion to make. 4 This is the genealogy of heaven and earth. When they were made, on the day when the Lord God had made the heaven and the earth, 5 and all the verdure of the field, before it was on the earth, and every herb of the field, before it sprang up, [for God had not rained on the earth, nor was there a man to till it; 6 but a fountain ascended out of the earth and watered the whole face of the ground,] 7 then God formed the man, dust from the earth, and breathed upon his face a breath of life, and the man became a living soul. 8 And God planted a garden in Eden towards the east and placed there the man whom he had made. 9 And God caused to spring up there also out of that ground every tree beautiful to the sight and good for food, and the tree of life in the middle of the garden, and the tree for the purpose of knowing what was to be known of good and evil. 10 Now a river issueth out of Eden to water the garden: thence it is divided into four heads. 11 The name of the first is Physon. This is that which encircleth the whole country Evilat, where there is gold, 12 and the gold of that country is good. There also is the carbuncle and the Prasian stone. 13 And the name of the second river is Geon. This is that which encircleth the whole country of Ethiopia. 14 And the third river is Tigris. This is that which floweth down over against the Assyrians. And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And the Lord God took the man whom he had made, and placed him in this garden of pleasure to work it and to watch. 16 And the Lord God gave a charge to Adam, saying, "Of every tree which is in the garden for food, thou mightest have eaten; 17 but from this tree, that you may know good and evil, you must not eat of it. On the day you eat of it, by death you shall die." 18 Then the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone: let us make for him a helper correspondent to himself." 19 Now God had also formed out of the earth all the beasts of the field, and all the birds of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called every living creature; that was its name. 20 So Adam gave names to all the cattle, and to all the fowls of the air, and to all the wild beasts of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper like himself. 21 Then God brought an ecstasy upon Adam and caused him to sleep, and took one of his ribs and filled up flesh instead thereof. 22 And God built up the rib, which he took from Adam, into a woman, and brought her to Adam. 23 And Adam said, "This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh, let her be called woman." Because she was taken out of her man, 24 therefore a man is to leave his father and his mother and cleave to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Genesis 2:24

24 therefore a man is to leave his father and his mother and cleave to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Galatians 3:28

28 There is in him no distinction of Jew and Greek, no distinction of bondman and freeman, no distinction of male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 3:7

7 Likewise ye husbands cohabit with your wives, paying respect to them as the weaker sex, and moreover as co-heirs with you of the grant of life, that there may be no impediment to your prayers.

1 Timothy 3:2

2 The overseer therefore ought to be blameless, the husband of one wife, sober, discreet, well behaved, hospitable, qualified to teach,

Genesis 1:27

27 So God made man. After an image of God he made him. A male and a female he made them.

Proverbs 31:10-31

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? Such a one is indeed more valuable than precious stones. 11 The heart of her husband trusteth in her: such a one hath no need of spoils: 12 for she laboureth for her husband's good all her life long. 13 Having spun wool and flax she made a useful work with her hands. 14 She was like a merchant vessel which bringeth riches from afar: 15 She arose by night and gave food to her household and work to her maids. 16 Having viewed a field she bought it, and with the fruits of her hands planted the purchase. 17 Having girded herself tight about the waist, she strengthened her arms for work. 18 And finding that it was good to work, her lamp is not extinguished the whole night. 19 Her elbows she extendeth over the spindle; and her hands she keepeth at the distaff. 20 But she opened her hand to the needy; and stretched out her handful to the distressed. 21 Her husband when long abroad is not concerned for those at home: for all with her are well clothed. 22 She made for her husband double garments; and for herself robes of cotton and purple. 23 And her husband is distinguished in the gates; when he sitteth in council with the elders of the land. 24 She made sindons and sold girdles to the Chananites. She opened her mouth sparingly and with propriety; and had her tongue in due subjection. 25 She clothed herself with majesty and excellence, and enjoyed delights in her latter days. 26 The gates of her house were kept close shut; and she eateth not the bread of idleness. 27 She openeth her mouth with wisdom, and maxims of prudence. 28 Her bounty caused her children to honour her; for they were rich, and her husband praised her. 29 Many daughters have possessed wealth, many have acted virtuously: but thou hast surpassed: thou hast excelled all. 30 False are allurements, and vain the beauty of a wife. For a woman of understanding is blessed. Let her therefore praise the fear of the Lord. 31 Give her of the fruits of her hands; and let her husband be praised in the gates.

Genesis 2:18

18 Then the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone: let us make for him a helper correspondent to himself."
