Hi, I'm in the middle of studying Gen. 1-2 and wondered what the most economical way was to get Atrahasis Epic and the Enuma Elish into my Logos library for cross referencing. An English translation would be necessary. Anyone have any thoughts of what resource I might look into? Thanks

Hi Michael,

I was able to find them in the ANET logos resource: http://www.logos.com/product/3860/ancient-near-eastern-texts

If you have "Scholars Gold" or higher, then you have "The Context of Scripture" (3 vols.) which also has both "Enuma Elish" (under Babylonian creation myth) and "Atrah-Hasis" (Sumerian)

It might be worth looking at the Epic of Gilgamesh as well, since there are numerous parallels between the episode of the 'civilization' of Enkidu by Shamhat and the garden of eden story. The theft of a reinvigorating plant by a snake towards the end of the epic is also relevant. Additionally, you will find many details in the Gilgamesh version of the flood story that are missing in Atrahasis. There is a free online translation available at: http://www.ancienttexts.org/library/mesopotamian/gilgamesh/
