It was he who crossed the ocean the vast seas to the rising sun. who explored the world regions seeking life, It was he who reached by his own sheer strength Utanapishtim the Faraway. who restored the sanctuaries or cities that the Flood had destroyed. for teeming mankind,Who can compare with him in kingliness. Who can say like Gilgamesh I am King, Whose name from the day of his birth was called Gilgamesh. Two thirds of him is god one third of him is human. The Great Goddess Aruru designed the model for his body. she prepared his form,beautiful handsomest of men,He walks around in the enclosure of Uruk. Like a wild bull he makes himself mighty head raised over others. There is no rival who can raise his weapon against him.

Anu listened to their complaints,and the gods called out to Aruru. it was you Aruru who created mankind,www holybooks com. http www holybooks com the epic of gilgamesh,now create a zikru to it him.
Let him be equal to his Gilgamesh s stormy heart, let them be a match for each other so that Uruk may find peace. When Aruru heard this she created within herself the zikrtt of Anu. Aruru washed her hands she pinched off some clay and threw it into the. wilderness,In the wildness she created valiant Enkidu. born of Silence endowed with strength by Ninurta,His whole body was shaggy with hair. he had a full head of hair like a woman,his locks billowed in profusion like Ashnan. He knew neither people nor settled living,but wore a garment like Sumukan.
He ate grasses with the gazelles,and jostled at the watering hole with the animals. as with animals his thirst was slaked with mere water. A notorious trapper came face to face with him opposite the watering hole. A first a second and a third day, he came face to face with him opposite the watering hole. On seeing him the trapper s face went stark with fear. and he Enkidu and his animals drew back home,He was rigid with fear though stock still. his heart pounded and his face drained of color,He was miserable to the core. and his face looked like one who had made a long journey. The trapper addressed his father saying, Father a certain fellow has come from the mountains.
He is the mightiest in the land,his strength is as mighty as the meteorite of Anu. He continually goes over the mountains, he continually jostles at the watering place with the animals. he continually plants his feet opposite the watering place. I was afraid so I did not go up to him,He filled in the pits that I had dug. wrenched out my traps that I had spread,released from my grasp the wild animals. He does not let me make my rounds in the wilderness. The trapper s father spoke to him saying,My son there lives in Uruk a certain Gilgamesh.
There is no one stronger than he,he is as strong as the meteorite of Anu. Go set off to Uruk,tell Gilgamesh of this Man of Might. He will give you the harlot Shamhat take her with you. www holybooks com,http www holybooks com the epic of gilgamesh. The woman will overcome the fellow as if she were strong. When the animals are drinking at the watering place. have her take off her robe and expose her sex,When he sees her he will draw near to her. and his animals who grew up in his wilderness will be alien to him. He heeded his father s advice,The trapper went off to Uruk.
he made the journey stood inside of Uruk,and declared to Gilgamesh. There is a certain fellow who has come from the mountains. he is the mightiest in the land,his strength is as mighty as the meteorite of Anu. He continually goes over the mountains, he continually jostles at the watering place with the animals. he continually plants his feet opposite the watering place. I was afraid so I did not go up to him,He filled in the pits that I had dug. wrenched out my traps that I had spread,released from my grasp the wild animals.
He does not let me make my rounds in the wilderness. Gilgamesh said to the trapper,Go trapper bring the harlot Shamhat with you. When the animals are drinking at the watering place. have her take off her robe and expose her sex,When he sees her he will draw near to her. and his animals who grew up in his wilderness will be alien to him. The trapper went bringing the harlot Shamhat with him. They set off on the journey making direct way, On the third day they arrived at the appointed place. and the trapper and the harlot sat down at their posts. A first day and a second they sat opposite the watering hole. The animals arrived and drank at the watering hole. the wild beasts arrived and slaked their thirst with water. Then he Enkidu offspring of the mountains,who eats grasses with the gazelles. came to drink at the watering hole with the animals. with the wild beasts he slaked his thirst with water. Then Shamhat saw him a primitive,a savage fellow from the depths of the wilderness.
That is he Shamhat Release your clenched arms, expose your sex so he can take in your voluptuousness. Do not be restrained take his energy,When he sees you he will draw near to you. Spread out your robe so he can lie upon you,www holybooks com. http www holybooks com the epic of gilgamesh, and perform for this primitive the task of womankind. His animals who grew up in his wilderness will become alien to him. and his lust will groan over you, Shamhat unclutched her bosom exposed her sex and he took in her.
voluptuousness,She was not restrained but took his energy. She spread out her robe and he lay upon her, she performed for the primitive the task of womankind. His lust groaned over her, for six days and seven nights Enkidu stayed aroused. and had intercourse with the harlot,until he was sated with her charms. But when he turned his attention to his animals,the gazelles saw Enkidu and darted off.
the wild animals distanced themselves from his body. Enkidu his utterly depleted body, his knees that wanted to go off with his animals went rigid. Enkidu was diminished his running was not as before. But then he drew himself up for his understanding had broadened. Turning around he sat down at the harlot s feet, gazing into her face his ears attentive as the harlot spoke. The harlot said to Enkidu, You are beautiful Enkidu you are become like a god. Why do you gallop around the wilderness with the wild beasts. Come let me bring you into Uruk Haven, to the Holy Temple the residence of Anu and Ishtar. the place of Gilgamesh who is wise to perfection, but who struts his power over the people like a wild bull.
What she kept saying found favor with him,Becoming aware of himself he sought a friend. Enkidu spoke to the harlot,Come Shamhat take me away with you. to the sacred Holy Temple the residence of Anu and Ishtar. the place of Gilgamesh who is wise to perfection, but who struts his power over the people like a wild bull. I will challenge him,Let me shout out in Uruk I am the mighty one. Lead me in and I will change the order of things, he whose strength is mightiest is the one born in the wilderness.
Shamhat to Enkidu,Come let us go so he may see your face. I will lead you to Gilgamesh I know where he will be. Look about Enkidu inside Uruk Haven,where the people show off in skirted finery. where every day is a day for some festival,where the lyre and drum play continually. www holybooks com,http www holybooks com the epic of gilgamesh. where harlots stand about prettily,exuding voluptuousness full of laughter.
and on the couch of night the sheets are spread,Enkidu you who do not know how to live. I will show you Gilgamesh a man of extreme feelings. Look at him gaze at his face,he is a handsome youth with freshness. his entire body exudes voluptuousness,He has mightier strength than you. without sleeping day or night,Enkidu it is your wrong thoughts you must change. It is Gilgamesh whom Shamhat loves,and Anu Enlil and La have enlarged his mind.
Even before you came from the mountain,Gilgamesh in Uruk had dreams about you. Gilgamesh got up and revealed the dream saying to his mother. Mother I had a dream last night,Stars of the sky appeared. and some kind of meteorite of Anu fell next to me,I tried to lift it but it was too mighty for me. I tried to turn it over but I could not budge it,The Land of Uruk was standing around it. the whole land had assembled about it,the populace was thronging around it.
the Men clustered about it,and kissed its feet as if it were a little baby. I loved it and embraced it as a wife,I laid it down at your feet. and you made it compete with me, The mother of Gilgamesh the wise all knowing said to her Lord. Rimat Ninsun the wise all knowing said to Gilgamesh. As for the stars of the sky that appeared,and the meteorite of Anu which fell next to you. you tried to lift but it was too mighty for you, you tried to turn it over but were unable to budge it.
you laid it down at my feet,and I made it compete with you. and you loved and embraced it as a wife, There will come to you a mighty man a comrade who saves his friend. he is the mightiest in the land he is strongest,his strength is mighty as the meteorite of Anu. You loved him and embraced him as a wife,and it is he who will repeatedly save you. Your dream is good and propitious, A second time Gilgamesh said to his mother Mother I have had another dream.

At the gate of my marital chamber there lay an axe. and people had collected about it,The Land of Uruk was standing around it. the whole land had assembled about it,the populace was thronging around it.

At his instruction,Who knows his heart,Shamhat pulled off her clothing. and clothed him with one piece,while she clothed herself with a second.

The shepherds gathered all around about him,they marveled to themselves. How the youth resembles Gilgamesh, tall in stature towering up to the battlements over the wall. www holybooks com,http www holybooks com the epic of gilgamesh. Surely he was born in the mountains,his strength is as mighty as the meteorite of Anu. They placed food in front of him,they placed beer in front of him.

Drink the beer as is the custom of the land,Enkidu ate the food until he was sated. he drank the beer seven jugs and became expansive and sang with joy. He was elated and his face glowed,He splashed his shaggy body with water. and rubbed himself with oil and turned into a human. He put on some clothing and became like a warrior, He took up his weapon and chased lions so that the shepherds could eat.
He routed the wolves and chased the lions, With Enkidu as their guard the herders could lie down. A wakeful man a singular youth he was twice as tall as normal men.
