|Adam & Eve
GEN 2:18 Then the Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him." GEN 2:19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. GEN 2:20 And the man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him. GEN 2:21 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. GEN 2:22 And the Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. GEN 2:23 And the man said, "This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man." GEN 2:24 For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. GEN 2:25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
Eden, Garden of
The name of Eden is derived or originated either from the Hebrew root meaning “to be fruitful, plentiful” or from a Sumerian word meaning “steppe(A vast semiarid grass-covered plan, usually lightly wooded, as found in southeastern Europe and Siberia), or a flatland which is land that varies little in elevation. The biblical “Garden of Eden” motif occurs in three basic contexts: The second creation story (Gen 2:8-9, 15-16; 3:1-10, 23-24); a related, more myth logically oriented version of that story, concerning primeval times, which tells of a guardian angel who is later struck down by God because of his sins and wrongdoing (Ezek 28:12-16); and in two main similes-the first in an oracle of consolation referring to the rebuilding and recultivating of the land that had previously been laid waste (Ezek 36:35), and the second, in an oracle of rebuke alluding to the fertile condition of the land before its destruction (Joel 2:3).
