Chapter Summary

Lines 1-4a of the tablet conclude Anat's response to Baal that began in 1.3 IV 54. Most of the column describes Anat's journey to El's abode and their conversation, which climaxes with her delivery of Baal's complaint. Unfortunately, the column breaks off before we find out what El's reaction to Anat's message is, although the subsequent events in 1.4 I indicate that he refused her request. Lines 1-4a complete Anat's response to Baal that began in the final lines of the preceding column. Here she describes what she plans to do to El if he refuses to grant her request. As seems characteristic of the volatile goddess, she threatens to pull El to the ground as if he were a domesticated animal, perhaps prepared for the slaughter.
