A helper fit for him

Gen 2.18-25

A. Mission statement: Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”

B1. Proposed solution: Now out of the ground the LORD God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens…
B2. Brought to man: … and brought them to the man to see what he would call them.
B3. Act of naming: And whatever he called every living creature, that was its name. The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field.
B4. Resolution: But for the man there was not found a helper fit for him.

C1. Proposed solution: So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman…
C2. Brought to man: … and brought her to the man.
C3. Act of naming: Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”
C4. Resolution: Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

Mission accomplished.

To be fit, then, is perhaps synonymous with to become one flesh.

        “sejarah” lain: ketika Adam ngeliat Hawa… maka dia berkata:”Wow,man!!!” maka untuk seterusnya mereka dipanggil dgn sebutan “woman” :)
