  • How did you receive immortality??
  • GILGAMESH
  • I will tell you the great secret that is hidden from humans...
  • UTNAPISHTIM
  • In the time before the Flood, there was a city, Shuruppak, on the banks of the Euphrates. There, the counsel of the gods held a secret meeting; they all decided to destroy the world in a great flood.
  • THE COUNSEL OF THE GODS (SECRET MEETING)
  • All the gods promised not to reveal this secret to any living thing, but Ea (one of the gods that created humanity) came to my house and told the secret to the walls, not technically violating the oath to the rest of the gods.
  • Ea advised the walls of my house to build a great boat, its length as great as its width, to cover the boat, and to bring all living things into the boat.
  • I loaded the boat with gold, silver, and all the living things on the earth, and then launched the boat. Ea ordered me into the boat and commanded me to close the door behind me.
  • The black cloud arrived, with thunder god Adad rumbling with them; the earth split like an earthenware pot, and all the light turned to darkness. The flood was so great that even the gods were frightened.
