Serpent Lady Goddess of Irrigation
= Ninil = role name Gabri-el = governor or the Latin gubernator.
With the modern equivalent Ninkharsag was Governor of the Garden
in Eden. Also said to be in charge of the Serpents and the Cherubim.
Kharsag Epic No.3 where Enlil says to the Keeper of the Gate:
This is thy lady the exalted Lady Ninlil; Where water
cultivates, she commands in my name.
The name serpent comes through in the translations of the earliest
text in terms of the Archangels being described as Two Eyed
Serpents and Angels described as One Eyed Serpents both
also being called Anannage or Anannuki.
The archaic form of the Sumerian language, the serpent (also
mush - messiah anointed one), evolved into three
separate ideograms, the first of which had four attached meanings:
1. A serpent. 2. The Dogs tongue plant. 3. The God Shakan.
4. The God Sir. The second expressed meanings which included:
1. The Goddess Ishtar of Erech. 2. The priest or one cleansed.
3. The God Shushinak. 4. Splendour and magnificence. The
third continued the list of goddess names with: 1. Goddess Inanna.
2. Goddess Ishtar.
Ninkharsag, Inanna, Ishtar, Isis, Astarte, Ceres, Kali in
India, Ka in Indonesia and Coatlicue in the Americas,
are all described as Serpent Lady, or nearer our own
times as the Lady of the Serpents. Historically the serpent
became associated with:
2. The healing arts. 3. The symbol of the caduceus the
badge of the medical profession. 4. Wisdom Be ye therefore
as wise as serpents - Matthew X:16:5. 5. Shrewdness
Now the serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild beats.
