Adam vero
non inveniebatur
adiutor
similis eius.
 
Inmisit ergo
Dominus Deus
soporem
in Adam,
cumque obdormisset,
tulit unam
de costis eius
et replevit carnem pro ea.
 
Et aedificavit
Dominus Deus
costam,
quam tulerat de Adam,
in mulierem
et adduxit eam ad Adam.
 
Dixitque Adam:
"Hoc nunc
os
ex ossibus meis
et caro
de carne mea;
 
haec vocabitur
virago
quoniam de viro sumpta est.
 
Quam ob rem
relinquet homo
patrem suum
et matrem,
et adhaerebit uxori suae,
et erunt duo
in carne una."
 
Erant autem uterque
nudi,
Adam scilicet et uxor eius,
et non erubescebant.
