Men Are the Weaker Sex
"Then Yahweh thought, 'The man shouldn't be lonely; I will make him an ezer.'"
|"Eve Naming the Birds" by William Blake|
I looked up the meaning of "ezer" and I found a few - Adam's ezer is his:
power and strength;
succor and lifesaver;
savior and protector.
Ezer most frequently refers to God. "The Hebrew word is ezer. it does not signify a weaker individual meant to serve another, but rather a strong individual coming to the aid of someone weaker."
(Adam Hamilton; Making Sense of the Bible)
