Ge’ez/Tigrinya translation of Atrahasis – Tablet 1 – Part 4


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.

Atra Ahasis – it is time to investigate – እተራ አሐሲስ

Atra hesus – It is the time for the inferiors – እተራ ሕጹጽ

Atra hase – It is time to make things right – እተራ ሀሴ

Hesa/Hayasa – ሔሰ\ሐየሰ – be better, be suitable, make things better.

Atra/Etera -እተራ – the turn of something. a time for something.
