When the destinies had been fixed for all that had been engendered, when An had engendered the year of abundance, when humans broke through earth’s surface like plants…
Enlil, to make the seed of the kalam sprout from the beneath the Earth, to separate heaven from earth, he hastened, to make light shine in Uzu-mu-a he bound the pillar of Heaven and earth in Dur-an-ki.
He worked with the Pick axe, the light of the sun came out, he fixed its task: the work of hoeing.
The Lord chose the pickax and fixed its destiny,crowned it with a floral crown , a pure crown.
In order to create the first man in Uzu-mu-a with the pickax, he put the first of mankind in the mold.
Before Enlil, the people of the kalam broke through the surface of the earth.
He looked with favor on his black-headed people.
The Anunna gods came rushing to him,
In reverence brought their hands to their mouth,
Here, “where the flesh sprouts,” he set this very *hoe to work:
he had it place the first model of mankind in the brickmold.
And according to this model his *people started to break through the soil towards Enlil, and he looked approvingly at his “blackheaded people.”
Now the Anuna–gods stepped up to him: they wanted to demand the “black headed people” from him.
The lady who once upon a time had given birth to the ruler, who had given birth to the king, Nin-men-a now set the human reproduction going.
The Great Foundation ki-ur-gal-emade herself resplendent, her body flowered joyousl, vast Earth adorned her body with precious metal and lapis-lazuli.
She adorned herself with diorite, chalcedony, carnelian and elmeshu, Heaven clothed the plants in beauty, stood by their majesty.
Pure Earth made herself verdant in a clean place for pure An, high Heaven, consummated marriage with vast Earth.
He implanted the seed of the heroes Tree and Reed in her womb
.Earth, the good cow, received the good seed of An.
Earth gave herself to the happy birth of the plants of life.
The Plow cries out to the Hoe, “I, I am Plow, I was fashioned by the great powers, assembled by noblest hands!
I am the mighty registrar of the god Enlil!
I am the faithful farmer of Mankind!"

And you have probably seen this one: Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible.
But do you know which nation is second? It is Iraq !
However, that is not the name that is used in the Bible.
The names used in the Bible are Babylon, Land of Shinar, and Mesopotamia ... The word Mesopotamia means between the two rivers, more exactly between the Tigris And Euphrates Rivers
The name Iraq means country with deep roots.Indeed Iraq is a country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible.
No other nation, except Israel, has more history and prophecy associated with it than Iraq ..
overall and surprisingly nobody has apparantly ever noticed this it is shaped in the form of a plow, with the Uzu-mu-a at it's heart, were the plow is also the primary symbol of Ninurta, son of Enlil.
In Jewish folklore, a golem (/ˈɡoʊləm/ GOH-ləm; Hebrew: גולם) is an animated anthropomorphic being, magically created entirely from inanimate matter. The word was used to mean an amorphous, unformed material (usually out of stone and clay) in Psalms and medieval writing. The most famous golem narrative involves Judah Loew ben Bezalel, the late-16th-century rabbi of Prague. There are many tales differing on how the golem was brought to life and afterwards controlled.
Here, in 'Where Flesh Came Forth' , he set this very hoe to work; he had it place the first model of mankind in the brick mold. His Land started to break through the soil towards Enlil
As for the grave: the hoe buries people, but dead people are also brought up from the ground by the hoe
Ninurta, has introduced working with the hoe into the rebel lands. He subdues any city that does not obey its lord. Towards heaven he roars like a storm, earthwards he strikes like a dragon
I don't think there's any evidence for 13 and 18.
There was a fourth seen with them in the fire, whose form, in Nebuchadnezzar’s judgment, was like the Son of God; he appeared as a divine person, a messenger from heaven, not as a servant, but as a son. Like an angel (so some); and angels are called sons of God, Job 38:7. In the apocryphal narrative of this story it is said, The angel of the Lord came down into the furnace; and Nebuchadnezzar here says (Dan. 3:28), God sent his angel and delivered them; and it was an angel that shut the lions’ mouths when Daniel was in the den, Dan. 6:22.
But some think it was the eternal Son of God, the angel of the covenant, and not a created angel. He appeared often in our nature before he assumed it in his incarnation, and never more seasonable, nor to give a more proper indication and presage of his great errand into the world in the fulness of time, than now, when, to deliver his chosen out of the fire, he came and walked with them in the fire.
- Matthew Henry's Commentary
3:25 a son of the gods. How Nebuchadnezzar recognized the fourth person in the furnace as a divine being is not explained. Perhaps the miraculous appearance was itself sufficient reason for the conclusion.

Observe, 1. Peter, being at Babylon in Assyria, when he wrote this epistle (whither he travelled, as the apostle of the circumcision, to visit that church, which was the chief of the dispersion), sends the salutation of that church to the other churches to whom he wrote (1 Pet. 5:13), telling them that God had elected or chosen the Christians at Babylon out of the world, to be his church, and to partake of eternal salvation through Christ Jesus, together with them and all other faithful Christians.
- Matthew Henry's Commentary
V 12–14: CLOSING CONCERN Peter shows his concern for individuals in highlighting Sylvanus and Mark along with ‘the church in Babylon’ (perhaps a code word for Rome).
- The Bible Panorama
5:13 She . . . at Babylon. Probably a reference to the church in Rome

Jesus wasn't born when yet when they were thrown into the first. That story was written in BC times before Christianity
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."
Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.”
“You are not yet fifty years old,” they said to him, “and you have seen Abraham!”
“Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”
Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High (El Elyon), and he blessed Abram, saying;
“Blessed be Abram by God Most High (El Elyon), Creator of Heaven and Earth. And praise be to God Most High (El Elyon), who delivered your enemies into your hand.”
Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything.
This Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of God Most High (Theos Hypsistos). He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings and blessed him, and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything. First, the name Melchizedek means “king of righteousness”; then also, “king of Salem” means “king of peace.” Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, resembling the Son of God (Huio Theos), he remains a priest forever.
And what we have said is even more clear if another priest like Melchizedek appears, one who has become a priest not on the basis of a regulation as to his ancestry but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life. For it is declared:
“You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.”
The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.
And it was not without an oath! Others became priests without any oath, but he became a priest with an oath when God said to him:
“The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: ‘You are a priest forever.’”
Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantor of a better covenant.
Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office; but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
Such a high priest truly meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself. For the law appoints as high priests men in all their weakness; but the oath, which came after the law, appointed the Son, who has been made perfect forever.
