Bible Commentary for Genesis 2:23

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 2:23


2:23 And Adam said, this is now bone of my bones - Probably it was revealed to Adam in a vision, when he was asleep, that this lovely creature, now presented to him, was a piece of himself and was to be his companion, and the wife of his covenant - In token of his acceptance of her, he gave her a name, not peculiar to her, but common to her sex; she shall be called woman, Isha, a She - man, differing from man in sex only, not in nature; made of man, and joined to man.

  • Cristina N Scheeler on Genesis 2:23
    The Word of God is so timeless! I know sometimes, I get caught up on other chapters in the Bible, but it is always refreshing, to go back to the Book Of Genesis!, where it all began, it's like going back to the fundamentals of the faith. When I read the OT, I ask the Holy Spirit to see Christ!
  • John Patterson on Genesis 2:23
    God had Adam name every living them. But God, himself named this creation Woman. A profound difference.
