comment וְהִתְקִין לוֹ מִמֶּנּוּ בִּנְיַן עֲדֵי עַד Is the translation of מִמֶּנּוּ **His** very self or his very self?
Fair point, although I still think the word "building" is so odd in context (where in Tanach is a soul, a body, or a gender called a "building?") that it only really fits if it has something to do with the creation of the woman, whom the text says was "built." Thus, even if you are correct that it doesn't refer to Eve specifically but to the human female gender in general, that concept still has a close connection with the "building" verse which is about the creation of the original human female, while the soul does not.

Presumably the blessing would not use a pronoun to refer to a being not identified anywhere else in the blessing. Therefore, "him" either refers to God or Adam.

Exactly. Are you disagreeing with something I wrote?
