At the beginning of time there were only gods and goddesses on earth. They had to work the land to grow crops to eat. This was difficult and they worked very hard.
Each god and goddess had a job to do. Some dug the fields and planted the crops. Others brought water to the fields in ditches which had to be kept clear of weeds.


The work was hard, and they were not happy. They got together to discuss what could be done to lighten their workload.

They went to get advice from Enki, who was wise and clever. Enki was fast asleep in his underwater house.


Enki suggested that he create creatures to serve them by working the land. Then the gods' and goddesses' lives would be easier.



The gods and goddesses thought that Enki's plan was a good solution. Enki collected clay from around his watery home and used it to make humans.

He breathed life into the clay figures, but he limited how long they would live. Only the gods and goddesses would live forever.


The humans were put to work in the fields. As servants of the gods and goddesses they had to provide them with food and drink for their tables.


The humans took water from the rivers and fed the dry and lifeless lands. They dug the soil and planted crops.


With hard work the humans brought life to the land, and the gods and goddesses, who had brought life to the humans, were happy......... for the moment...........
