(gods in bluemixed-breeds in teal)

The name Martu can be written syllabically as Amurru or as a logogram MAR.TU which represents the Sumerian reading. But who or what was Amurru? The Amurru people are often mentioned in Mesopotamian inscriptions as the nomadic people of the steppe, who would come down from the hillsides and raid the agricultural products of the settled people of Sumer and Babylon.

1-8 When the city of Inab already existed, but the city of Kiritab did not yet exist,

when the holy crown already existed, but the holy tiara did not yet exist,

when the holy herb already existed, but the holy cedar did not yet exist,

when holy salt already existed, but holy alkali did not yet exist, when intercourse and kissing already existed,

when giving birth in the fields already existed — I was the grandfather of the holy cedar,

I was the ancestor of the mes tree, I was the mother and father of the white cedar, I was the relative of the hacur cedar.

9-15 At that time there was a princely land among the cities; Inab was this princely land among the cities.

The ruler of Inab was Tigi-cem-ala.

Now, he had a wife whose name was Cage-gur (Desired-by-the-heart),

and a child, who ……, and her name was …….

16-25 The people living around the city hung up nets, the people living around Inab hung up nets, hung up nets,

chased gazelles and killed the gazelles as one kills humans.

One day, as the evening came, and they had reached the place of rations, they established the rations before the god ……

(The correct form of this name is not known).

The ration of a married man was established as double, the ration of a man with a child was established as triple;

the ration of a single man was established as single;

but the ration of Martu, though being single, was also established as double (giant god).

26-33 Martu went home to his own mother, and spoke to her:

“In my city I am among my friends and they all have already married wives;

I am there among my mates, and they all have already married wives.

Unlike my friends in my city I am single, I am single and I have no children.

Yet the imposed share exceeds that of my friends; over and above that of my mates, I received half of theirs.”

34-40 One day, as the evening came, and they had reached again the place of rations,

they established the rations before the god ……

(The correct form of this name is not known).

The ration of a married man was established as double, the ration of a man with a child was established as triple;

the ration of a single man was established as single;

but the ration of Martu, though being single, was also established as double.

41-52 Martu went home to his own mother (Ninhursag), and spoke to her:

“My mother, find me a wife to marry and I will bring you my ration.”

His own mother replied to Martu:

Su-henuna, my son, I will give you advice; may my advice be heeded.

I shall say a word to you; you should pay attention to it.

Marry a wife of your choice, marry a wife of your heart’s desire, give me thus a companion, …… me a slave-girl.

Having built the houses of (?) your people living around the city,

and …… gardens, you will dig the wells of (?) your mates.

Martu, …… mates ……”

53-66 At that time a festival was announced in the city;

a festival was announced in the city of Inab (ancient city just northwest of today’s Aleppo, Syria).

Amurru / Martu by Wikipedia

Amurru and Martu are names given in Akkadian and Sumerian texts to the god of the Amorite/Amurru people, often forming part of personal names. He is sometimes called IluAmurru (DMAR.TU). He was the patron god of the Mesopotamian city of Ninab, whose exact location is unknown.

Description

Amurru/Martu was probably a western Semitic god originally. He is sometimes described as a ‘shepherd’ or as a storm god, and as a son of the sky-god Anu. He is sometimes called bêlu šadī or bêl šadê, ‘lord of the mountain’; dúr-hur-sag-gá sikil-a-ke, ‘He who dwells on the pure mountain’; and kur-za-gan ti-[la], ‘who inhabits the shining mountain’. In Cappadocian Zinčirli inscriptions he is called ì-li a-bi-a, ‘the god of my father‘.

Accordingly, it has been suggested by L. R. Bailey (1968) and Jean Ouelette (1969), that this Bêl Šadê might be the same as the Biblical ’Ēl Šaddāi who is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the “Priestly source” of narrative, according to the documentary hypothesis. It is possible that Šaddāi means ‘He of the mountains’ or even ‘the breasted God’ as early iconography of Yahweh at Kuntilet Arjud shows him to have been hermaphroditic (possessing both breasts and male genitals). Alternately, Bêl Šadê could have been the fertility-god ‘Ba’al‘, possibly adopted by the Canaanites, a rival and enemy of the Hebrew God YHWH, and famously combatted by the HebrewprophetElijah.

Amurru also has storm-god features. Like Adad, Amurru bears the epithet ramān ‘thunderer’, and he is even called bāriqu ‘hurler of the thunderbolt’ and Adad ša a-bu-beAdad of the deluge’. Yet his iconography is distinct from that of Adad, and he sometimes appears alongside Adad with a baton of power or throwstick, while Adad bears a conventional thunderbolt.

Wife

Amurru’s wife is sometimes the goddess Ašratum (see Asherah) who in northwest Semitic tradition and Hittite tradition appears as wife of the god Ēl which suggests that Amurru may indeed have been a variation of that god. If Amurru was identical with Ēl, it would explain why so few Amorite names are compounded with the name Amurru, but so many are compounded with Il; that is, with Ēl.

Another tradition about Amurru’s wife (or one of Amurru’s wives) gives her name as Belit-Seri, ‘Lady of the Desert’.

A third tradition appears in a Sumerian poem in pastoral style, which relates how the god Martu came to marry Adg̃ar-kidug the daughter of the god Numushda of the city of Inab. It contains a speech expressing urbanite Sumerian disgust at uncivilized, nomadic Amurru life which Adg̃ar-kidug ignores, responding only: “I will marry Martu!”.
