Help Meet : Genesis 2:18

And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

I often hear people call Eve a “help meet” for Adam. I’ve heard men call their wives help meets. Eve is not a help meet. A wife is not a help meet. God said he would make a help meet – or a help suitable – for Adam. Consider the use of “meet” in this passage:

2 Timothy 2:21 (KJV) If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

We are to be a vessel meet for the master’s use – a vessel suitable for the master’s use.

Meet = suitable.
