The Anunnaki gods Enlil and Enki and the cause of the Great flood/deluge. Enlil was also known as “The “lord of the ghost-world” who extended his dominion over this nether earth also. The reason Enlil is entitled “the lord of the world,” and also “king of all the spirits of the earth.” Namely the Anunnaki gods.
According to a story of the Deluge, it was the Anunnaki Enlil who caused the waters of the flood to descend from heaven, and who designed the destruction of all mankind. When Enlil (mul-lil) we are told, saw the ship of Xisuthros, he was filled with wrath against the gods and the spirits of heaven. Let no man remain alive in the great destruction.’ It was then that Enki came forward with words of wisdom, and protested against this attempt of Mul-lil to confound the innocent with the guilty, “Let the sinner alone bear his si-n; let the evil-doer bear his own iniquity.” But when inviting the other gods to his sacrifice after his descent from the ark, he specially excepted the Anunnaki god of Nipur Enki. “Let the other gods come to my altar, but let Enlil/Mul-lil not come to the altar, since he did not act considerately, but caused a deluge and doomed my people to destruction.”
I have called the god by his old Akkadian name Mul-lil; But long before this account of the Deluge was composed, even though in its present form it probably reaches back more than 2000 years before the Christian era, the Accadian Mul-lil had become the Semitic Bel. His primitive attributes, however, still adhered to him. He was still the god of the lower world, whose messengers were diseases and nightmares and the demons of night, and from whom came the plagues and troubles that oppressed mankind.
