John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 2:23

And Adam said, this is now bone of my bones — Probably it was revealed to Adam in a vision, when he was asleep, that this lovely creature, now presented to him, was a piece of himself and was to be his companion, and the wife of his covenant — In token of his acceptance of her, he gave her a name, not peculiar to her, but common to her sex; she shall be called woman, Isha, a She — man, differing from man in sex only, not in nature; made of man, and joined to man.
