Bible Verse:
“And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” (Genesis 2:18)
Meaning:
Daughter of Eve is used to describe women in general as they are born after the creation of Eve.
Origin and Application:
Adam, when created by God, was alone without any companions. Shortly after Adam’s birth, God put Adam into a deep sleep and created woman out of Adam’s rib. Adam named her Eve, meaning “living”. Eve is so named because she is the mother of all living. In The Chronicles of Narnia written by C.S. Lewis, Daughter of Eve is used to describe women in general as they are born after the creation of Eve.
