Ge’ez/Tigrinya translation of Sumerian God(s)


One thing you have to ask yourself is how does Ge’ez/Tigrinya translation give an accurate historical and contextual etymology which makes much more sense than the manistream translations. I will leave you to your own judgement. 

Annunaki – አኑ ናዓኺ

Ananya – አናንያ – cloud.

Anew – ዓነወ – destroyed.

Na’aki – ናዓኺ – for you (f)

Na’aka – ናዓኻ – for you (m)

Kay – ካይ – precious stone.

Annuna – አኑና – forefathers, lords

Annu Na’ki – አኑ ናዓኺ – Annu for you (f)

Annu Na’ka – Annu for you (m)

Annu nay Kay – አኑ ናይ ኬ – Lord of the Earth. (KI is the name given to earth by the Annuna)

A’newna – አዕነውና – They destroyed us.

Annu nayKi – አኑ ናይኪ – The fLord’s of Earth

The contextual and symbolic etymology refers to the Annu na’ki’ አኑ ናዓኺ, came for humanity. Annu for humanity as our forefathers or lords of humanity, as antediluvian humans believed and also had knowledge that it was the Annuna who created the modern man. It could also refer to the ones who destroyed at the time of the deluge when they left leaving humanity on it’s own. Ki is the name given to our planet by the Annuna, the translation still holds, as it will be ‘The Lords of Earth’. The feminine ‘Annu Na’ki’ could also refer to Innana as she was consort of Annu and that she also proclaimed herself ‘Goddess of the heaven’ through Annu.

incorrect understanding of the Annunaki by mainstream historians based on semitic narrative of the Annuna.

The Annunaki (also transcribed as Anunaki, Annunaki, Anunna, Ananaki and other variations) are a group of deities of the ancient Sumerians, Akkadians, Assyrians and Babylonians. In the earliest Sumerian writings about them, which come from the Post-Akkadian period, the Anunnaki are deities in the pantheon, descendants of An and Ki, the god of the heavens and the goddess of earth, and their primary function was to decree the fates of humanity.

Enki – ኤንኪ/ EA – ኢዬ/ኢያ

Enqi – ዕንቍ – precious, precious stone. 

‘Anaqa – ዐነቀ – hang around the neck.

Anqe – አንቄ – Hawk.

Enki – እንኪ – to give/here take.

Erki – ዓርኪ – friend.

EA – ኢዬ/ኢያ – It is /I am

The contextual and symbolic etymology refers to Enki as the friend of Mankind as he is the God that gave mankind the knowledge of language and cognitive abilities. EA mean ‘It Is’ or ‘I am’ which is the epithet of Enki. Enki is telling mankind it was him that saved humans from the deluge by telling Utnapishtim (biblical Noah) to build an arc.

He taught mankind what everything is. He is also the God that fought with his half-brother Enlil for humans to continue to exist as he is the one responsible for giving Man his present state of being, transforming him from a mere ape like like being to a cognitive thinking Man. Enki’s gift to Man was the most precious gift given to Mankind because we have the blood of the God’s running through our veins thanks to Enki.

incorrect understanding of Enki by mainstream historians based on semitic narrative of the Annuna.

Enki (Sumerian: 𒀭𒂗𒆠) is the Sumerian god of water, knowledge (gestú), crafts (gašam), and creation (nudimmud), and one of the Anunnaki. He was later known as Ea or Ae[5] in ሥ (Assyrian-Babylonian) religion, and is identified by some scholars with Ia in Canaanite religion. The name was rendered Aos in Greek sources (e.g. Damascius).

He was originally the patron god of the city of Eridu, but later the influence of his cult spread throughout Mesopotamia and to the Canaanites, Hittites and Hurrians. He was associated with the southern band of constellations called stars of Ea, but also with the constellation AŠ-IKU, the Field (Square of Pegasus).

Enlil – ኤንሊል

Leul – ልዑል – elevated lofty, highest.

Elel – ዕልል – chant of celebration.

Leul – ልኡል – prince.

Nealel – ንዐልል – let us chant.

Aneleul – አንልዑል – I am the highest.

Ane Leul – I am the prince

The contextual and symbolic etymology ‘Ane Leul’ refers to Enlil being the chief of the Sumerian Gods on earth. ‘Ane Leul’ also refers to him reminding that he is the prince, son of Anu. it also could tells us about the custom of the people chanting “Eleel” in respect and love of Enlil. I believe the chant which is still used to this day in east africa and the middle east during wedding celebrations has its roots from that time when the people chanted for Elil.

incorrect understanding of Enlil by mainstream historians based on semitic narrative of the Annuna.

Enlil, later known as Elil, is an ancient Mesopotamian god associated with wind, air, earth, and storms. He is first attested as the chief deity of the Sumerian pantheon, but he was later worshiped by the Akkadians, Babylonians, Assyrians, and Hurrians. Enlil’s primary center of worship was the Ekur temple in the city of Nippur, which was believed to have been built by Enlil himself and was regarded as the “mooring-rope” of heaven and earth. He is also sometimes referred to in Sumerian texts as Nunamnir. According to one Sumerian hymn, Enlil himself was so holy that not even the other gods could look upon him. Enlil rose to prominence during the twenty-fourth century BC with the rise of Nippur. His cult fell into decline after Nippur was sacked by the Elamites in 1230 BC and he was eventually supplanted as the chief god of the Mesopotamian pantheon by the Babylonian national god Marduk. The Babylonian god Bel was a syncretic deity of Enlil’s brother Enki, Enki’s son Marduk, and the shepherd deity Dumuzid.

Ninlil – ኒንሊል

Leul – ልዑል – elevated lofty, highest.

Ini/Nin – a title for an elderly person (a title given to the God’s).

Ninenlil – ኒንኤንሊል – Goddess for Enlil.

Nin Leul – ኒን ልዑል – Elevated Godess.

The contextual and symbolic etymology of the first translation ‘Nin Enlil’ tells us that she was the wife of Enlil. The second translation ‘Nin Leul’ refers to her being one of the main Goddesses in the Sumerian pantheon.

incorrect understanding of Ninlil by mainstream historians based on semitic narrative of the Annuna.

Ninlil (𒀭𒎏𒆤 DNIN.LÍL; meaning uncertain) was a Mesopotamian goddess regarded as the wife of Enlil. She shared many of his functions, especially the responsibility for declaring destinies, and like him was regarded as a senior deity and head of the pantheon. She is also well attested as the mother of his children, such as the underworld god Nergal, the moon god Nanna or the warrior god Ninurta. She was chiefly worshiped in Nippur and nearby Tummal alongside Enlil, and multiple temples and shrines dedicated to her are attested from these cities. In the first millennium BCE she was also introduced to Ḫursaĝkalamma near Kish, where she was worshiped alongside the goddess Bizilla, who was likely her sukkal (attendant deity).

Ninharsag/Damkina – ንዕንሓርሳግ

hawwëra – ሐወረ – go forth, proceed.

Gual – ጐል – girl, female.

Ini/Nin – a title for an elderly person (a title given to the God’s).

Ne – Ana – ንአነ – For us.

Harasa – ሐረጸ – pulverize, grind, powder.

Haras – ሓራስ – pregnant woman.

Har – ሓር – silk.

Sega – ስጋ – meat, body,

Dam gualna – ደም ጎልና – blood of our daughter.

Ne’eni-ema – ንዕኒ እማ – for the sake of Ini.

Damkina – ደምኪና – We are your blood.

Damgualuna – ደም ጐሉና – The blood of our daughters.

Nin haras sega – ኒን ሓርስ ስጋ – Goddess, Let me give birth to a living body.

Nin har sega – ኒን ሓር ስጋ – Goddess with the silky body.

The contextual and symbolic etymology refers to Ninharsag as the goddess of childbirth and of mothers as she is also the fertility goddess. ‘Nin hars sega’, ‘Goddess, let me have a child’ tells us that the women used to beg the goddess for their child to be healthy and alive, as child immortality rate was very high in antediluvian times. ‘Damgualna’ could refer to the people associating themselves with her bloodline as Enki and Damkina/Ninhursag, a creation myth wherein the two deities were the one’s responsible for the creation of humanity. Her Assyrian name ‘Damkina’ also reaffirms that she was indeed the mother of humanity, which is were we get the name ‘Mummu’ which stayed to this day with us as we still call our mothers, Mamma.

incorrect understanding of Ninhursag/Damkina by mainstream historians based on semitic narrative of the Annuna.

Ninḫursaĝ (Sumerian: 𒀭𒊩𒌆𒄯𒊕, romanized: nin-ḫur-saŋ) DNIN-ḪUR.SAG Sometimes transcribed Ninkharsag. also known as Damgalnuna or Ninmah, was the ancient Sumerian mother goddess of the mountains, and one of the seven great deities of Sumer. She is principally a fertility goddess. Temple hymn sources identify her as the “true and great lady of heaven” (possibly in relation to her standing on the mountain) and kings of Sumer were “nourished by Ninhursag’s milk”. Sometimes her hair is depicted in an omega shape and at times she wears a horned head-dress and tiered skirt, often with bow cases at her shoulders. Frequently she carries a mace or baton surmounted by an omega motif or a derivation, sometimes accompanied by a lion cub on a leash. She is the tutelary deity to several Sumerian leaders. She was Enki’s wife (also known, among many other names as Ninmah and, originally, as Damgalnuna, the Assyrian Damkina). She had many names including Ninmah (“Great Queen”); Nintu (“Lady of Birth”); Mamma or Mami (mother); Aruru (Sumerian: 𒀭𒀀𒊒𒊒), Belet-Ili (lady of the gods, Akkadian).

Ninurta – ኒንእርታ

Ini/Nin – a title for an elderly person (a title given to the God’s).

Rat’a – ረተዐ – be righteous, be just – defeat.

Gars – ገርስ – chain.

Nin Garsu – ኒን ጋርሱ – The God who chains.

Ninerta – ንእኒ ረተዐ – because he defeated Nin (A God).

Neonerta – ንእዖን ረተዐ – The God who defeated him.

The contextual and symbolic etymology ‘Ninerta‘ refers to Ninurta defeating and slaying Anzu and getting back the tablet of destinies and bringing back order to the cosmos. The translation ‘Nin Garsu‘ tells us that Ninurta was a God of war who defeated and chained his enemies.

incorrect understanding of Ninurta by mainstream historians based on semitic narrative of the Annuna.

Ninurta (Sumerian: 𒀭𒊩𒌆𒅁: DNIN.URTA, “Lord [of] Urta” meaning of this name not known), also known as Ninĝirsu (Sumerian: 𒀭𒊩𒌆𒄈𒋢: DNIN.ĜIR2.SU, meaning “Lord [of] Girsu”), is an ancient Mesopotamian god associated with farming, healing, hunting, law, scribes, and war who was first worshiped in early Sumer. In the earliest records, he is a god of agriculture and healing, who cures humans of sicknesses and releases them from the power of demons. In later times, as Mesopotamia grew more militarized, he became a warrior deity, though he retained many of his earlier agricultural attributes. He was regarded as the son of the chief god Enlil and his main cult center in Sumer was the Eshumesha temple in Nippur. Ninĝirsu was honored by King Gudea of Lagash (ruled 2144–2124 BC), who rebuilt Ninĝirsu’s temple in Lagash.

Marduk – ማርዱክ

Rad’a – ረድአ – give help, aid, rescue.

mardë’ – መርድእ – helper, assistance.

mahale – ማሐሌ – he swore.

Imhallu – Emehillu – እማሐሉ – They swore/promised.

Maredak – ሙረዳአክ -Didn’t he help you ? 

Maradika ? – ማዕረዲኻ – Are you an equal?   

Mardaak – መርድእክ – The great helper.

The contextual and symbolic etymology refers to Marduk being the great helper to the people of babylon. The translation Maradika ?, is a question to Marduk, if he is an equal God to Enlil. If we take the translation ‘Imahallu’, we could refer to the Enûma Elish, a civil war between the gods was growing to a climactic battle. The Anunnaki gods gathered together to find one god who could defeat the gods rising against them. Marduk, a very young god, answered the call and was promised the position of head god.

incorrect understanding of Marduk by mainstream historians based on semitic narrative of the Annuna.

Marduk (Cuneiform: 𒀭𒀫𒌓 dAMAR.UTU; Sumerian: amar utu.k “calf of the sun; solar calf”; Classical Syriac: ܡܪܘܿܕ݂ܵܟܼ (Mrōḏāḵ), Hebrew: מְרֹדַךְ‎, Modern: Mərōdaḵ, Tiberian: Merōḏaḵ) was a god from ancient Mesopotamia and patron deity of the city of Babylon. When Babylon became the political center of the Euphrates valley in the time of Hammurabi (18th century BC), Marduk slowly started to rise to the position of the head of the Babylonian pantheon, a position he fully acquired by the second half of the second millennium  BCE. In the city of Babylon, Marduk was worshiped in the temple Esagila. Marduk is associated with the divine weapon Imhullu. His symbolic animal and servant, whom Marduk once vanquished, is the dragon Mušḫuššu. “Marduk” is the Babylonian form of his name.
