Adapa, who has earned wisdom but not eternal life, is a son of and temple priest for Ea in Eridu, and performs . Adapa and the South Wind: Language Has the Power of Life and Death Article in Journal of the American Oriental Society (4) October with 45 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

    The Myth of Adapa. Adapa was the ’son’ and priest of the god Ea, in Eridu. Adapa was given the wisdom of heaven and earth to equip him to be a priest of the god. Adapa’s boat was capsized by the South Wind (Shuttu) in a sudden storm; Adapa responded by angrily cursing Shuttu. Enki sent Adapa on a secret mission down the Persian Gulf. Adapa could sail south, against the prevailing south-to-north wind when Enki stopped the wind with a d evice similar to the U.S.’s HAARP laser batteries. Enlil's observers, however, monitored the .

      Adapa was out fishing one day when a wind overturned his boat, causing him great anger. In his rage he broke the ‘South Wind’, a type of god, which was responsible for the event. According to the myth, the Supreme god Anu, father of Enki, called Adapa to account for his actions, and for this Adapa was ascended to Anu’s : Johnblack. This chapter examines the Sumerian and Akkadian evidence for the myth of Adapa. First, it demonstrates that the myth underwent revision in Akkadian, with the addition of a new prologue and epilogue that recast it in terms of wisdom and immortality. These themes, both present in the Neo-Assyrian evidence, do not belong to the older version that was found at Amarna. Second, Author: Sara J. Milstein.

His messenger Ilabrat answered him: "My lord, Adapa, the son of Ea, the wing of the South wind Has broken." When Anu heard these words He cried, Help!". One day he was fishing, Adapa suddenly saw “the South Wind that rose and flooded the boat.” In great danger of capsizing, Adapa lost his temper and “broke the wing of the South Wind.” How can the wing of a wind be broken.

Everyone knows that the wind does not need wings to fly. Only birds have wings. When Adapa was fishing one day on a smooth sea, the south wind rose suddenly and overturned his boat, so that the was thrown into the sea.

Angered by the mishap, he broke the wings of the south wind so that for seven days it could not blow the sea's coolness over the hot land.Thompson's () translation (cf. above) reveals it is a creature in service to Anu who dwells in heaven, who calls Adapa to appear before him and explain how and why he has overpowered this demonic creature in the Adapa and the South Wind Myth.
