Q & A
Q – Isn’t the wife supposed to be the husband’s ‘helper’?
A – Yes and No. The woman that was made to be with Adam was called his ‘help meet’ (Greek EZER KENEGDO), not his ‘helpmate’.
Ezer (help) does not mean from a lesser being. The same term is used of God helping us. It speaks of power and strength.
Kenegdo (meet) means a corresponding counterpart. In other words, the woman was to be a strength where Adam was weak.
