Eve

02Jul06

Gen 2:21  And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
Gen 2:22  And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Gen 2:23  And Adam 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.
 
“deep sleep” (tardêmâh) is a single word in the original language of the Bible meaning ecstasy, a stronger word for delight.  It also means a trance.   God promised to give us the desires of our heart if we delight in Him.   It was God’s plan for Adam to have a wife & Adam desired a wife.   Gen 2:20  And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found a help meet for him.   1John 5:14  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:  God granted Adam’s desire as he was in “deep delight” in the Lord.   Psa 37:4  Delight thyself also in the LORD; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.  It’s without doubt ecstasy to be in the presence of the Lord.

The Hebrew word translated rib would’ve been better translated as “seed”.   God didn’t clone Eve from Adam’s rib!  In Adam’s trance resulting from his ecstacy before God, God expelled a seed from Adam which He made into a woman for Adam.  The Hebrew word “min” was translated “of” & “from” in the King James Bible.  “Min” is better translated as expelled in the story of Eve.

Gen 2:23  And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh….   Adam here is simply stating that he & Eve are now one flesh.  Gen 2:24  Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Gen 2:21  And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;   The term “closed up the flesh instead thereof” in the Hebrew means “shut up the womb”.  Adam was a man & therefore didn’t have a womb; it simply meant that all of mankind would now come out of a woman.  Gen 3:20  And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

 Psa 127:1  A Song of degrees for Solomon. Except the LORD build the house, they labor in vain that build it…  We must have the spouse that God chooses for us or all is in vain.

God has a set order.  Isa 28:10  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little….  When there is no way, God can!  With Adam there was no woman to bring forth children, God brought forth a woman miraculously but used as much of the natural plan as He could.  When Jesus fed the multitude with a few fish, He worked a miracle but still used the fish.   In the greatest miracle of all–Salvation– we are made a new creature in Christ Jesus, but we still have this fleshly body with it’s limitations.
