tak terasa...

hampir seluruh kisah utama dalam perjanjian lama alkitab/tanakh sudah TS tulis kisah pembandingnya..

*yg dititik merah sdh ts tulis mitologi timur tengah kuno pembandingnya,lihat daftar di pejwan

*garis merah adalah pemisah antara perjanjian lama dan baru

kecuali utk kisah2 yg berasal dari kitab samuel dan raja-raja/kings(dilingkaran biru) yg memang tokohnya disandur dari buku raja israel(buku yg berbeda dari alkitab/tanakh), dimana arkeologi membuktikan bahwa kebanyakan raja raja dalam kitab kings tersebut kebanyakan sdh terbukti real person(tp bukan berarti mengakui narasi kisah kings dan samuel akurat..pembahasannya sdh bukan mitologi lagi),

*FYI,dari 53 tokoh alkitab yg terbukti real person oleh arkeolog,SELURUHNYA berasal dari kitab kings dan samuel,tokoh perjanjian lama diluar kings dan samuel seperti adam,abraham,musa,dll tidak ditemukan bukti kuat eksistensinya sampai skrg

nasihat siduri + beberapa bait puisi epic of gilgamesh lainnya >ecclesiastes

The closest parallel between a biblical text and the Epic of Gilgamesh is seen in the wording of several passages in Ecclesiastes, where a strong argument can be made for direct copying. The author of Ecclesiastes frequently laments the futility of “chasing after the wind” (for example, Eccl 1:6, Eccl 1:14, Eccl 1:17, Eccl 2:11, Eccl 2:17, Eccl 2:26, Eccl 5:16, etc.), a notion reminiscent of Gilgamesh’s advice to the dying Enkidu: “Mankind can number his days. Whatever he may achieve, it is only wind”(Yale Tablet, Old Babylonian Version). Earlier in the story, Gilgamesh persuaded Enkidu that two are stronger than one in a speech containing the phrase, “A three-stranded cord is hardest to break” (Standard Babylonian Version, IV, iv). Similarly, Ecclesiastes tells us, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work…. Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken” (Eccl 4:9-12). These may simply be common sayings picked up by both authors, but Eccl 9:7-9 seems to directly quote the barmaid Siduri’s advice to Gilgamesh on how to deal with his existential angst:

siduri advice :

When the gods created mankind,
They appointed death for mankind,
Kept eternal life in their own hands.
So, Gilgamesh, let your stomach be full,
Day and night enjoy yourself in every way,
Every day arrange for pleasures.
Day and night, dance and play,
Wear fresh clothes.
Keep your head washed, bathe in water,
Appreciate the child who holds your hand,
Let your wife enjoy herself in your lap.
(epic of gilgamesh-Meisner Tablet)

Ecclesiastes 9:7-10

English Standard Version (ESV)

Enjoy Life with the One You Love

7 Go, eat your bread with joy, and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already approved what you do.

8 Let your garments be always white. Let not oil be lacking on your head.

9 Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your vain life that he has given you under the sun, because that is your portion in life and in your toil at which you toil under the sun.

10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might,for there is no work or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol, to which you are going.

This advice sums up the message of both the Epic of Gilgamesh and Ecclesiastes, two texts that wrestle with the search for meaning in the face of human mortality.
