Nephilim of ancient Mesopotamia

Sumerian Nephilim

The Akkadian Empire was an empire centered in the city of Akkad in what is today ancient Iraq, or Mesopotamia. The Akkadian state was the predecessor of Babylonia and the Assyriaian Empires.

Akkad is mentioned once in Genesis 10:10: And the beginning of his (Nimrod’s) kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar (KJV). The Greek (LXX) spelling is Archad.

Sumerian was the spoken language of mesopotamia during the 3rd and the 2nd millennium BC, but continued to be used as a sacred, ceremonial, literary and scientific language until the first century AD.

Later rulers established the supremacy of the Semitic (think Sham one of Noah’s sons) language of Akkadian over that of the Sumerian language.

Sargon an Akkadian and Sumer ruler who was a Nephilim (23rd century BC) is quoted as saying:

My mother was a changeling (?), my father I knew not. The brothers of my father loved the hills. My city is Azurpiranu (the wilderness herb fields), which is situated on the banks of the Euphrates. My changeling mother conceived me, in secret she bore me. She set me in a basket of rushes, with bitumen she sealed my lid. She cast me into the river which rose not over me. The river bore me up and carried me to Akki, the drawer of water. Akki, the drawer of water, took me as his son and reared me. Akki the drawer of water, appointed me as his gardener. While I was gardener Ishtar granted me her love, and for four and (fifty?) … years I exercised kingship.
