Babylonians believed that Ut-Naphishtim, through the god Ea, heard that the gods had decided to cover the universe with a flood.
Ut-Naphishtim thus had time to build an ark in which to
save himself and his wife from the flood. Enlil, the god who had sent the flood, made
Ut-Naphishtim a god after the flood had passed.
