The Glory Of Woman

Creation of Eve, Michaelangelo, The Sistine Chapel

I am studying Genesis 1-3 today, and am struck by the beauty and stunning nature of God’s creation – woman. I mean seriously, especially you husbands out there, are you as thankful as you should be that God made woman!?

Matthew Henry:

The woman is not made out of his head to top him, not 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.

Cassuto:

Just as the rib is found at the side of the man and is attached to him, even so the good wife, the rib of her husband, stands at his side to be his helper-counterpart, and her soul is bound up with his.
