What does the word "meet" mean in the King James Version?

Does it mean the same as it does in today's English?

Thanks for asking a question on thisisyourbible.com.

Here are some alternative translations which will help you to understand this phrase. In King James English, the word "meet" means "fit" or "appropriate".

Genesis 2:18

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

NKJVAnd the LORD God said, "It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him."

NLT Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him."

RSV Then the LORD God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him."

I hope you have found this helpful.

God bless,
Mike
