Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the bibliography, text and translation, textual notes and commentary on KTU 1.1 IV. While it is difficult to identify the overall structure(s) of this fragmentary column, three main parts may be inferred. First, a section describes an invitation to a feast with a reference to El's drinking in progress in (lines 1-11). Del Olmo Lete describes this section as a "Lamento por Yammu" while others generally characterize this section as a description of the poverty of El's circumstances. Second, El discusses with Athirat the naming of yw as Yamm and El commissions Yamm to defeat Baal (lines 12-27). Third, El carries out a feast (lines 28-32). The location of El's feasting is unclear. The houses mentioned in lines 6 and 21 are different, the first belonging to El and second to Yamm.

Keywords: Baal lines; Del Olmo Lete; EI; KTU 1.1. IV; Yamm
