Bible Commentary for Genesis 2:19

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 2:19


2:18-20 It is not good that man - This man, should be alone - Though there was an upper world of angels, and a lower world of brutes, yet there being none of the same rank of beings with himself, he might be truly said to be alone. And every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air God brought to Adam - Either by the ministry of angels, or by a special instinct that he might name them, and so might give a proof of his knowledge, the names he gave them being expressive of their inmost natures.

2:21-22 This was done upon the sixth day, as was also the placing of Adam in paradise, though it be here mentioned after an account of the seventh day's rest: but what was said in general, #Ge 1:27|, that God made man male and female is more distinctly related here, God caused the sleep to fall on Adam, and made it a deep sleep, that so the opening of his side might be no grievance to him: while he knows no sin, God will take care he shall feel no pain.

  • Bruce Quarterman on Genesis 2:19
    It s not not what we think but what God has chose to reveal We as the created MUST believe and not question the revealed word of the living God If we question God s word then we question God Himself for God is the word John 1 1 In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God If we take a good look at His truth according to Genesis 2 7 God shaped man of the dust of the ground man had every thing he needed for life except the breath from God Himself Once God personally breathe the breath of life into his nostrils then he not only became a living soul but all manner of wisdom was also imparted because of this God bought all the animals to Adam to see what he would name them
