O glorious Shamash, I have followed the road commanded but now if you send no succor how shall I escape?
Shamash the sun god.
Humbaba stared out his strong house of cedar with the eye of death.
Humbaba in the midst of defeat.
Gilgamesh had tears running down his cheeks as he prayed to Shamash.
"Gilgamesh, let me speak. I have never known a mother, no, nor a father who reared me. I was born of the mountain, he reared me, and Enlil made me the keeper of this forest. Let me go free, Gilgamesh, and I will be your servant, You shall be my lord; all of the trees of the forest that I tended on the mountain shall be yours. I will cut them down and build you a palace.
Shamash the sun god heard Gilgamesh's prayer and summoned the eight winds to help defeat Humbaba.
The three strikes.
Shamash had summoned the 8 winds and they are capturing Gilgamesh.
Humbaba begged and begged to be let free, but Gilgamesh did not listen.
Gilgamesh struck Humbaba not 1 time, not 2 times, But on the third strike Humbaba went down.
