GENESIS 2:18-25 sketch by Donald R Ricker 2001HELP MEET

2001 Donald R Ricker

This sketch is presented at the request of a contributor to ArtYouLike to show sketches of my concept of creation.

The moment is taken from the second chapter of Genesis in the King James version, which is short-formed here to refresh your memory.

2:18 God says, "It is not GOOD that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him."

2:19 God creates all living things and shows them to Adam to see what he would call them.

2:20 Adam names cattle / fowl / beasts of field; "for Adam there was not found an help meet for him".

2:21 God renders Adam unconscious, removes rib, heals wound.

2:22 God makes Eve, not from dust like everything else, but from the rib.

2:23 Adam names her Wo-Man (out of man).

2:24 "Therefore" out-of-context editorial comment for marriage by narrator.

2:25 "And they were both NAKED and were NOT ashamed."
