Gilgamesh and the Scriptures

The legendary Gilgamesh is a littoral item created in Mesopotamian times. It contains a large number of motifs as well as concepts within the Holy Bible of the Hebrews. Without a doubt, of all these tales, the most famous is the legendary diluvium. It has a great similarity with Noah’s Ark- But, the epic will consist of the character whose story has similarities with those Hebrew tales that waste inside his Holy Bible: the part in which the things of Gilgamesh form part of a plant of immortality, which will be prevented by a snake, he will divinely fight with this attacker and selected the declaration that will be made of the identity of the hero, here he will predictor that it will be more important on the others, something that will contrast with what happens in the Genesis. Also, it helps him to know that the greatest action that is used to die is always going to be living and in recognition of those things that will be human. This will be compared to Ecclesiastes.

The legendary Gilgamesh knew the world thanks to the scriptures, thus, different copies have been found in Megiddo, Emar, and in the North of Anatolia and Nineveh. They are responsible for sharing different themes with their suggestions, such as the flood, along with other Atinui texts within the Near East. With this, it is difficult to establish with a good kind of security that this Epic is going to directly affect those stories that the Scriptures tell us. A good example is that these floors were thought to be projections that are puzzling in the future and are inspired by God. So when Joseph dreams of sheaves of corn and also celebrities who are bowed, the author was more likely and is not a copy of those Gilgamesh eye dreams, is he? The idea that marks this is that mortality is the inspiration behind that persecution of Gilgamesh, this will separate the gods and also human beings, something that is found in other works that are Mesopotamian or Egyptian, as it happens in a part of Genesis.

Within the Legendary, those gods are going to produce the Enkidu, something that is released with pets and in an open nation, being a companion of Gilgamesh. Certain similarities are integral between the part of the Garden of Eden tale within the Genesis and that Enkidu activity is related in the same way from that naturalize, to society, even to humans. In both stories, the woman will be responsible for the change in the male, something that also happened with the intoxicated consumption of pets and the state of estrangement from nature. The part of Enkidu is rejected by the animal world, Shamhat’s wife will provide the best clothes and the possibility of consuming beer, just like bread is consumed, with this, the technological advances that separate these people from pets.

In the part of Genesis, when Adam eats the fruit of the tree of understanding, he goes to cover the nakedness and is also punished for the life of growing food with hard work. It is the price of a divine understanding.

On Gilgamesh, when the Enkidu character separates the pets, Shamhat will decorate you that he becomes a God. Later, on the deathbed, Enkidu will regret this elimination of the state of nature, only to warn by the god Shamash himself that considering a civil life full of problems and experience with death itself, it will be a Price worth it thanks to social experience coupled with that understanding.

Thus, the closest paralero between this biblical message and the importance that Gilgamesh has is seen in the writing of passages in the section of Ecclesiastes, here there will be a very solid debate and in duplicate.

In this way, the author of Ecclesastés always increases the futility of chasing the wind. It is an idea very similar to the one that Gilgamesh has.

The advice given by the dying Enkidu, mankind can count six days. Whatever it may bind is the wind. This has been seen on the Yale Table, within the ancient Babylonian version. Before all this, Gilgamesh is going to convince Enkidu that two are much more powerful than in a speech has that expression, a three-wire cable is more difficult to break. Thus, Ecclesiastes is going to tell us that two are much better than one, since they have a good performance for work, …. although it could not be subdued, two can protect themselves. Thus, this three-stranded rope is not going to break easily. This will prevail in some sayings that are taken by the writers, but within Ecclesiastes, it will seem like an estimate of the direct price. Like the advice of a Saduri waitress to Gilgamesh on the management of existence.

He tells us, in summary, the following: the gods produce the human race and with it the designation of his death, eternal life was in his hands.

Afterward, Gilgamesh is going to let his belly be whole, he will enjoy the day and the night on the account in all those means.

You must organize the days to enjoy everything possible. Take a shower, put on clean clothes, and value the young people who are by your side.

This is going to summarize that message both from Gilgamesh, as in Ecclesiastes, they are two texts that will fight with that search for meaning in the face of human death.

In conclusion, the story of the Impressive Gilgamesh teaches us that we must enjoy life at all times because we are not immortal. After all, the gods have wanted it that way, but if we want eternal life, which will depend on what the gods want. Gods in particular. On the other hand, it is very similar to different passages that have to do with the Hebrew Holy Bible or with other Mesopotamian and Egyptian centers.

Thus, these stories must be known by everyone and above all, we must learn from all this.
