Genesis 1:18-25. Eve was specially created to be the wife and partner of the man Adam, whose creation is described in the beginning of Genesis.
God had seen that the animals had their helpmates but the man he had made did not.
Adam called his wife Eve. Her name in Hebrew means: life, life-giving.
We are not told how old Eve was when she died nor is her death recorded in Scripture.
Eve is not mentioned again after the birth of Seth at the end of Genesis 4, other than in two quotations in the New Testament – 2 Corinthians 11:3 and 1 Timothy 2:12-14.
Eve is created
18 Later, the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make the woman to be an authority corresponding to him.” 19 After the LORD God formed from the ground every wild animal and every bird that flies, he brought each of them to the man to see what he would call it. Whatever the man called each living creature became its name. 20 The man gave names to all the livestock, to the birds that fly, and to each of earth’s animals, but there was not found a strength corresponding to him, 21 so the LORD God caused a deep sleep to overshadow the man.
When the man was asleep, he removed one of the man’s ribs and closed up the flesh where it had been. 22 Then the LORD God formed the rib that he had taken from the man into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 So the man exclaimed,
“At last! This is
bone from my bones
and flesh from my flesh.
This one will be called ‘Woman,’
because she was taken from Man.”
24 (Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and cling to his wife, and they will become one flesh.) 25 Even though both the man and his wife were naked, they were not ashamed about it.
