The Epic of Gilgamesh
He who has seen everything, I will make known (?) to the lands.
I will teach (?) about him who experienced all things,
Anu granted him the totality of knowledge of all.
He saw the Secret, discovered the Hidden,
he brought information of (the time) before the Flood. (1.1-6)
Enkidu was diminished, his running was not as before.
But then he drew himself up, for his understanding had broadened. (1.183-184)
The Noble Counselors of Uruk arose and
delivered their advice to Gilgamesh:
"You are young, Gilgamesh, your heart carries you off—
you do not know what you are talking about!" (2.280-283)
