1 Now it came to pass that all was not well between the Mulu A and the Mullu Izi..

o
2 The Mulu Izi knew the secret of fire, they sewed clothing and made
fine and delicate things, they thought the Mulu A were course and simple.

o o
o o
3 The Mulu A could not make fire, they wore skins and thought the
Mulu Izi beautiful and frightening.

o o
o
4 the Mulu Izi lived in their own places
away from the Mulu A because the Mulu Izi and the Mulu A found preference
in their own kind.

o
o o
5 The Mulu Izi begat children and grew numerous, the Mulu A begat children and were numerous.

o
o
6 There were among the Mulu Izi, one called Adapa who was first born amongst the Mulu Izi, and with him was
his mate, Sila. They begat between them two sons Engar and Ur.

o o
o o
o o
7 Engar was a child of Nechar, and was a tiller of
the earth, Ur his younger brother was more like the Mulu A and he was a hunter.

o o
o o
o
8 Engar was beloved by his people and was looked upon by the women of
the Mulu Izi.

o o
o
o o
9 Engar grew Canubu, and he offered it to the gods, the new wine untouched by human hands.

o o
o
o
10 Ur was unshorn and dirty, he was not looked upon by the women of
the Mulu Izi, yet when he went before the Mulu A, they favored him for Ur
was not like the Mulu Izi.

o
o o
o o
11 In time the Mulu A saw that Ur was as the best amongst them, and
he stood among them like a head man. The Mulu A spoke to him of their
jealousy and told him of the First Brood.

o
o o
o
12 Ur sought the First Brood in the deep wild places and there he cast
bargains with them for they feared the might that was within him, and he
offered up children to them

o
o
o o
13 Ur returned to the Mulu A and sat as a king among them, for no
warrior could best him, nor could any sorcerer overcome him with the magic
of the First Brood.

o
o
o
14 Now it came to pass that Ur hunted one day and passed near to the
places of the Mulu Izi, and he thought to spy in secret upon them. It came
to pass that when Ur approached the river he saw women bathing at the shore.

o o
o o
o o
o o
15 Amongst the woman in the river was the betrothed of Engar. Her name
was Erin, and she was passing beautiful.

o o
o o
o o
o
16 When Ur saw Erin, he desired her above all else, He returned to the
Mulu A and sent word to the Mulu Izi that he desired Erin of the river for
his wife.

o o
o o
o
o o
17 When Engar heard this he went before Adapa and Sila saying, "I will
go before my brother and treat with him for if love is within his heart he
will understand that I have said 'Mu ashta za e' to Erin, and that she has
said this to me in kind.".

o o
o o
o
o
18 Engar went before his brother and Ur did not greet him, instead Ur
said, "Were is my bride?".

o o
o
o o
o o
19 Engar replied, "The one you seek is at the home of her parents, she
has said 'Mu ashta za e' to me. I have also said this in kind to her. She is my bride"

o o
o
o o
o
20 Ur was wroth but said only, "Then go home to your bride." and
walked forth from his place into the wild.

o o
o
o
o o
21 Engar began his journey home with sorrow in his heart, for he knew
Ur was lost to him.

o o
o
o
o
22 It came to pass that Ur had followed Engar close behind. Ur crept
up upon him and slew him with a stone. Ur cast the body of Engar in the
river, and it was taken away by the Enki.

o
o o
o o
o o
23 Ur washed his hands in the river and went to the place of the Mulu
Izi and entered the place of his father.

o
o o
o o
o
24 Adapa looked upon Ur and said , "Where is Engar your brother?" and
Ur spoke thusly, "Am I my brother's keeper?"

o
o o
o
o o
25 Ur spoke saying, "I have come for Erin, for Engar has given her to
me as wife." and he went to the place of Erin.

o
o o
o
o
26 Erin received Ur and said, "Ur, my parents are not here to receive
you. Where in Engar your brother?" and Ur spoke thusly, "Am I my brother's
keeper?"

o
o
o o
o o
27 Ur spoke further saying, "I have come for you, for Engar has given
you to me as wife." and he took Erin by the arm.

o
o
o o
o
28 Erin spoke saying, "I have said 'Mu ashta za e' to Engar, and he to
me. He spoke to me ere he left saying that only death would keep him from
me." Then it was that the Enki whispered in her ear, and Erin cried out to
the Mulu Izi saying, "Ur has slain Engar! Ur has slain my heart!".

o
o
o
o o
29 Ur silenced Erin and cast her over his shoulder. He fled the place
of the Mulu Izi and went towards the places of the Mulu A.

o
o
o
o
30 Now it came to pass that when Ur reached the river, Erin struggled
against him and he sought to still her struggles. Ur fought with her in the
river, and slew her though he had not meant to. He set her body in the
river and Enki took it away.

o
o o

o o
1 Now it had come to pass that Ur fled to the Mulu A and told them
that his brother had slain Erin and blamed it upon him. Ur said that it had
been because Erin had chosen Ur above Engar. He said Engar had fallen upon
him in the wilds and sought to slay him there.

o
2 Ur claimed that Engar had struck his head on a stone by mischance
and had died. Ur said that the Mulu Izi had been blessed by the Elder Gods
and that they made ready to attack saying "Ur is of the Mulu A, The Mulu A
must perish that we live!".

o o
o o
3 Now the Mulu Izi of Erin's camp were sore with anger and went
together in force towards the places of the Mulu A.

o o
o
4 The Mulu Izi came upon a shallow place in the river, and there
found Engar and Erin,arm in arm, dead upon the shore were the Enki had
placed them.

o
o o
5 The Mulu Izi made prayers, and buried Engar and Erin were they had
found them in each other's arms,

o
o
6 The Enlil smelled the offerings to the dead and he went before the
Mulu Izi and spoke saying, "What goes on here, why are there prayers to the
dead?"

o o
o o
o o
7 Adapa spoke of all that had been, saying, "Ur has slain his brother
and his brother's promised wife. When I inquired of him where Engar
tarried, he said only 'Am I my brother's keeper?', and went forth to seek
Erin."

o o
o o
o
8 Sila spoke saying, "When he went to Erin and spoke to her,Erin came
forth crying,'Ur has slain Engar! Ur has slain my heart', and Ur silenced
her and fled the places of the Mulu Izi. Erin and Engar had said ashta za e
one to the other".

o o
o
o o
9 The Enlil looked upon them and saw that all was as they had said it
had been. The Enlil looked upon the places of the Mulu A, and he saw that
they were not there. The Enlil looked upon the Mulu A and saw that they
waited with Ur to fall upon the Mulu Izi, and that their hearts were full
of Anger and turned from the Gods and the Enki whispered in his ear of Ur's
dark deeds.

o o
o
o
10 The Enlil sent word to Ashdar, and she made Hulupu tree grow were
Engar (the farmer) and Erin (the cedar) lay

o
o o
o o
11 The Enlil blessed the Mulu Izi of Erin's camp saying, "Vengeance is
a dish that spoils quickly in the heat, justice endures the furnace. All is
as you say, let Justice be done. Fall upon Ur and the Mulu A that are with
him." .

o
o o
o
12 Now the Enlil showed the Mulu Izi of Erin's camp the place were the
Mulu A lay in wait with Ur to fall on them

o
o
o o
13 The Mulu Izi of Erin's camp went forth with their weapons and fell
upon the Mulu A.

o
o
o
14 The Mulu A were sore surprised, and unready to defend themselves.
They were slain, but Ur was not to be found among them, for he had slipped
away before the battle.

o o
o o
o o
o o
15 Now when word of the battle reached the ears of the other Mulu A,
they were full of fear and wrath, and they cried out in anger to the Elder
Gods.

o o
o o
o o
o
16 When news of the battle reached the other Mulu A in Edin, they were
angry and fearful of the Mulu Izi , and they lifted their voices to the
Elder Gods.

o o
o o
o
o o
17 The Enlil came to the Mulu A and the Mulu Izi and sat between them
to be judge over their dispute.

o o
o o
o
o
18 The Enlil spoke and said, "I have looked with my awareness upon all
that has been and I see great ill here, where is Ur that this be set
aright? I know that he is not among the dead."

o o
o
o o
o o
19 Nahash the Ninib (scribe) of the gods said, "I will take word to
him." and he departed of a sudden.

o o
o
o o
o
20 Now the Ninib went before the Enki and inquired of Ur. Ur was
hidden within a cave and was startled when Ninib came upon him there.

o o
o
o
o o
21 The Ninib said, "Ur!, The Enlil calls you before him, asking, '
where your brother.?"

o o
o
o
o
22 Ur answered him saying, " Am I my brother's keeper?". and the Ninib
answered saying, "Nay, the Enki is your brother's keeper." and he departed
of a sudden.

o
o o
o o
o o
23 The Enlil was wroth that Ur came not upon being summoned. He sent
out his awareness to Ur and looked within Ur's heart.

o
o o
o o
o
24 The Enlil saw all that had happened between brothers, and he saw
how Ur had deceived the Mulu A. Ur felt the mind of the Enlil upon him, and
he was sore afraid.The Enlil spoke to Ur's heart saying, "Get thee gone! Be
not the Ur (hunter) but rather Alul (the betrayer) let your seed end among
the beasts of the field!" and the Alul fled to the north.

o
o o
o
o o
25 When the awareness of the Enlil returned to the dispute, he told
the Mulu Izi and the Mulu A all that had taken place, and bid them make
peace for the Mulu A had been deceived by Ur.

o
o o
o
o
26 The Mulu A demanded of the Enlil that he make the Mulu Izi pay them
one goat for each of the slain. The Mulu Izi asked the Enlil to make peace,
and would give nothing to the Mulu A because they had been the first to be
wronged.

o
o
o o
o o
27 The Enlil spoke saying, "There has been too much blood, The Mulu
Izi also lost kin in this. Let the Mulu Izi pay one goat for each three of
the Mulu A that were slain.".

o
o
o o
o
28 The Mulu Izi said, "The Enlil is just.", and made agreement, but
the Mulu A were unsatisfied and cried out for their original demand. The
Enlil said, "I have decided.", and departed the place of judgment..

o
o
o
o o
29 Now when the Enlil departed, the Mulu Izi made to leave and gather
the goats for compensation, but the Mulu A raised their voices in anger and
spoke hard words to the Mulu Izi saying,"You are beloved of the Elder gods,
they have taken our birth right from us and turned their hearts from us!
The First brood gave us fire to save us. The Mulu A came before the Mulu
Izi, even as the First Brood came before the Elder Gods.!".

o
o
o
o
30 The Mulu A turned their hearts from the Elder gods. They rose up
in anger and fell upon the Mulu Izi crying, "Slay them for they are
abominations! Kill them that we might live!", and the battle was begun
anew.

o o
1 Now it came to pass that the Elder Gods called the younger gods to
them and looked upon the war of the Mulu A and Mulu Izi

o
2 The leaders of the Mulu A and Mulu Izi were called to stand before
the Eternals that they could speak and find peace between them.

o o
o o
3 Adapa of the Mulu Izi came before the Gods but the leaders of the
Mulu A sent word saying, "We have turned our hearts from you, and serve now
the First Brood. The Mulu Izi are abominations."

o o
o
4 Addi, the Utu spoke saying, "The Mulu Izi are My kin for my blood
is in them, the Mulu A scorn us.."

o
o o
5 Nahash the Nebo said, "The Mulu Izi are my kin for my blood is in
them, the Mulu A fear us."

o
o
6 Pileha the Ashdar said,"The Mulu Izi are my kin for my blood is in
them, the Mulu A have forsaken my heart."

o o
o o
o o
7 Naphish the Zuen said, "The Mulu Izi are my kin for my blood is in
them, the Mulu A do not want us."

o o
o o
o
8 Chemosh the Ninurta said, "The Mulu Izi are my kin for my blood is
in them, the Mulu A hate us."

o o
o
o o
9 Nechar the Enlil said, "The Mulu Izi are my kin for my blood is in
them, the Mulu A do not obey us."

o o
o
o
10 Shanhuth the Adar said, "The Mulu Izi are my kin for my blood is in
them, the Mulu A are dead to me."

o
o o
o o
11 Adapa begged a voice and the Enlil granted his ear.

o
o o
o
12 Adapa said, "The Mulu Izi are my kin, but the Mulu A have disowned us."

o
o
o o
13 The Gods sent Adapa from them and spoke among themselves.

o
o
o
14 It was decided that the leaders of the Mulu A should be sent for
yet again, and the Ninib went before them asking, "Will there be peace?'

o o
o o
o o
o o
15 The Mulu A sent word saying, "We have turned our hearts from you,
and serve now the First Brood. The Mulu Izi are abominations, there will be
no peace."

o o
o o
o o
o
16 When the Ninib returned and spoke the words of the Mulu A, The
Enlil rose up from his place.

o o
o o
o
o o
17 The Enlil said, "The Mulu Izi are of my blood, the Mulu A have
turned their hearts from us, there will be no peace.."

o o
o o
o
o
18 Adapa went to the Mulu Izi and spoke saying, "The Mulu A have
turned their hearts from the Eternals and serve not the Elementals."

o o
o
o o
o o
19 The Mulu Izi asked, "And what of the dispute between us? Will there
be peace?", and Adapa spoke saying, "There will be no peace..." and he wept.

o o
o
o o
o
20 Now it came to pass that the ancient First Brood had entered into
pacts with the Mulu A and gave them much strength and knowledge.

o o
o
o
o o
21 The Mulu A rallied their powers and prepared to beset the Mull Izi.
The First Brood had counseled them to come is silence upon the Mulu A in
the night, for then the spirits of the First Brood could move at will.

o o
o
o
o
22 With the magic of the First Brood, the Mulu A made a Gishur of
silence about themselves, and the Mulu A went forth to the camps of the
Mulu Izi.

o
o o
o o
o o
23 When the Mulu A came upon the Mulu Izi, it was night and they were
covered in silence. The Mulu Izi did not perceive the Mulu A and were taken
by surprise. Many of the Mulu Izi of that place were slain and their goods
taken.

o
o o
o o
o
24 When the other Mulu Izi of Edin heard of it they rose up in arms
for they were angered and they knew there would truly be no peace. When the
other Mulu A of Edin heard of it they rose up in arms for they knew there
would be no peace.

o
o o
o
o o
25 The Mulu Izi did not wait, they fell upon the Mulu A. The Mulu A
did not wait, they fell upon the Mulu Izi.

o
o o
o
o
26 When the Mulu A and the Mulu Izi fell upon one another, the Gods
saw and knew there would be no peace. and they knew the Mulu A were in
league with the First Brood.

o
o
o o
o o
27 The gods came to council yet again. The Enlil spoke saying,"There
will be no peace and the First Brood are in league with the Mulu A."

o
o
o o
o
28 The Gods knew the words of the Enlil were truth, and they hardened
their hearts against the Mulu A and the First Brood.

o
o
o
o o
29 They sent the Ninib to the Mulu Izi and he blessed them saying,
"The Gods have hardened their hearts against the Mulu A and the First
Brood, defeat the Mulu A and drive them north out of the Edin."

o
o
o
o
30 The Mulu Izi rose up to drive the Mulu A out of the Edin, but the
Mulu A were empowered by the First Brood and would not be moved, War raged
between them for one thousand years, but in the end the Mulu A were driven
north till they were no more.

o o
1 When the Mulu A had fallen, peace returned to the Edin.

o
2 The Mulu Izi had multiplied their numbers, and spread far and wide.
The Mulu A perished but did not die, Rather as they were defeated, the
living were spared, and the blood of the Mulu A joined the blood of the
Mulu Izi. The Mulu A perished, but their blood adapted and followed.

o o
o o
3 Now it was seen by the Eternals that all was not well. The blood of
Kingu lived on in the Mulu Izi, and it was decided that rules should be
ordained to govern the Covenant of the First Brood.

o o
o
4 Like wise it was decided that the Mulu Izi should grow in wisdom
and strength. The Eternals set a priesthood among the Mulu Izi to be
intercessors between the Eternals and the Mulu Izi. A divination was cast
in the sands of the earth and it was proclaimed thus:

o
o o
5 From the days of the first rites it shall be thus, the ordained
shall sanctify the temple and command the sacred space. The Mulu Izi are
the ordained The Mulu Izi shall set them selves a kingdom that they might
leave behind the realms of powerlessness and Judgment. Let them eat of the
bread of life and sup at the cup of wonder.

o
o
6 Let them bath in the waters of Enki, let them lay their heads in
the pure lap of Ishtar and be blessed.

o o
o o
o o
7 With their left hand let them wield the savage darkness, and with
their right hand let the wield the healing light.

o o
o o
o
8 Let the Mulu Izi be mortal and rut as the beast of the field, Let
them be Elemental and know the mind that governs it own thoughts, Let them
be Eternal for they are infant gods.

o o
o
o o
9 The Mulu Ki fell, the Mulu A fell, the Mulu Izi will fall. the Mulu
Anu will rise

o o
o
o
10 These things will mark the time of the Mulu Anu

o
o o
o o
11 The cup bearer will become the True King, the Mad king shall wash
away the Gate of the Gods

o
o o
o
12 The Eternals will sleep 1000 years and the tablet of fate will be
forgotten by all save a few.

o
o
o o
13 The Mulu Izi will fly without wings of their own.

o
o
o
14 The Mulu Izi will touch the face of the moon and it will not smite
them.

o o
o o
o o
o o
15 The Mulu Izi will forget Azag, Kingu and Lamashtu, and find them in
the outer darkness with their own eyes.

o o
o o
o o
o
16 The Mulu Izi will gather into two forces to battle in a war of all
nations.

o o
o o
o
o o
17 The Battle of the World will herald the coming of the evil king and
his minions will bear the twin lightening bolts.

o o
o o
o
o
18 The evil king will offer up an entire people to the fallen gods,
and stretch his shadow over the land

o o
o
o o
o o
19 The Mulu Izi will gather yet again into two forces to battle him and his
allies.

o o
o
o o
o
20 The Mulu Izi will defeat the Evil King and form a tribunal of
nations that he never be reborn.

o o
o
o
o o
21 The Elementals will walk the land in freedom and might.

o o
o
o
o
22 Then shall the keepers of secrets find again the tablet of fate.

o
o o
o o
o o
23 Verily the greatest works of man will harness it as a ox.

o
o o
o o
o
24 Then shall the tablet be awakened, and the Mulu Anu will rise.

o
o o
o
o o
25 Even as the Mulu Ki were the stone of the altar.

o
o o
o
o
26 Even as the Mulu A were the oil of the lamp.

o
o
o o
o o
27 Even as the Mulu Izi are the flame.

o
o
o o
o
28 So shall the Mulu Anu be the good smell of the smoke and light of
the lamp.

o
o
o
o o
29 Let the light reign supreme for ever and ever, by the decree of the
great gods.
