 2:23
2:22 God built the rib that he took from the man into a woman, and He brought her to the man.
Vayiven Adonay Elohim et-hatsela asher-lakach min-ha'adam le'ishah vayevi'eha el-ha'adam.
2:23 The man said, 'Now this is bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh. She shall be called Woman (Ishah) because she was taken from man (ish).'
Vayomer ha'adam zot hapa'am etsem me'atsamay uvasar mibesari lezot yikare ishah ki me'ish lukacha-zot.



Commentary:

bone from my bones...
  An expression meaning 'my flesh and blood,' see Genesis 29:14.
