Question: From what did God make woman?
Answer: Adam’s rib. (Genesis 2:22)
Some believe the choice stems from a literary pun in Sumerian. In Sumerian, the word for "make live" is ti, which is also the Sumerian word for "rib."
The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. (Genesis 2:22, NASB)
Matthew Henry (1662-1714) wrote, "Woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved".
Note: This oil painting of Adam and Eve was created by Hans Baldung Grien (1476-1545) in 1507. It hangs in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
