A little while after Gilgamesh gets back to Uruk, he catches the eye of the goddess Ishtar. She instantly develops a serious crush on him.
The king of Uruk has insulted me!
Ishtar calls out to Gilgamesh and asks him to take her as his wife. If he will accept her offer she promises to give him riches. Although Gilgamesh isn't interested. Gilgamesh doesn't like Ishtar's track record.
Be my lover, be my husband!
Who were your lovers and bride grooms?
She can't stand being accused of having killed her former lovers. Ishtar was enraged and decided to go to the gods in heaven, her father.
Why should I eat rotten food when I have been taught to eat wholesome food?
You can't insult me I'm leaving!
Anu gave the Bull of Heaven to her, and the city of Uruk shook and the earth broke open under the great bull noise.
Give me of the Bull of Heaven that I may punish Gilgamesh the king !
Enkidu and Gilgamesh fight the Bull, Enkidu siezed the bull by reeking the tail and Gilgamesh thrust his sword into the bull and killed it.
Two people, companions, they can prevail together!
Ishtar was enraged and the goddess spoke her curse.
Woe be to Gilgamesh for insult to Ishtar, for Gilgamesh.....
