The first human words recorded in the Bible

In looking at material for our study of Genesis 2:8-15, I was struck by this comment: “The mysterious sleep suggests that Adam received revelation about the nature of the woman from God. After he awakes and God presents the woman to him, he joyously confesses that she is ‘bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.’ Indeed, these first human words recorded in Scripture are a love song in fulfillment of a God-created desire.”
