LALPA Pathien chun mihriema inthawka a lâk nâkru chu nuhmeiah a siem a, mihriem kuoma chun a ṭhuoi a. Gen. 2:22

Pathienin pasal (Adam) le nuhmei (Evi) a siem dân hi mak danglâm tak el chu a nih. Siem dana hin a chunghnunglem le a hnuoihnunglem ruok chu a um naw, amiruokchu umzie inthûktak neia danglamna chu a um ngei a ni ti chu hmu thei a nih. Hi lai thu tak el hi, ei thusep thlûr tum chu a  nih.

Nuhmei le Pasal chuh Pathien angpuia siem ei ni si chun iengleia siem dan danglam ve ve ei ni am ana? Pathienin pasal le nuhmei a siem dana hin pawimawna (significance) a um nîng a tî?

Biblical Exegesis:
Nâkru ti hi Hebrai ṭawng chun צֵלָע (tsela) a ni a, Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew Lexicon (BDB) in a hrilfie dân chun ‘Genesis a ‘tsela’ hi Bible a vawi 39 a hmangnaa hi thu chara hin nâkru tia inlet a nih, vawi 19 lai chu temple (biekin) bawlna le inzawma a sirtieng hrilnaa hmang a nih. Chuleiin, Adam nâkru hi a sîrtienga inthawkin ti thei a nih.

New American Commentary in a hrilfie naa chun, ‘Pathienin Adam nâkru kher ahmangna a hin תַּרְדֵּמָ֛ה (tardema) inhniktakin ân intir a ti hi, Jonah 1:5-6 a ‘tuisuorieta thlipui nasatak ân hrângtir laia lawng sûngril taka a ininnghil (tardema)’ a hmangna char kha  ani a, det taka in-na (deep sleep)a nih. Hi lai tak hin Pathienin pasal nâkru a lakdawk (surgical act of God) chu a nih. A pawimawtak chu danglam taka siem/induong ei ni ti hi a nih.
