    This is the text I have:

    Pritchard, The Ancient Near East, Vol. 1, 1958.
    Pritchard uses the texts from the library of Ashurbanipal, tablets I-II and X from the Old Babylonian version, with a fragment from the Hurrian rendition. A good volume, very nice to pull it out and see all my scribblings on the margins from school.

    Line count is very long, but if you want to know from tablet to tablet, I will add them up. It is the long version.

    Tablet I: Gilgamesh strutting around Uruk (oh, what a show off!) and the creation of Enkidu by Anu and Aruru.

    Very meaningful beginning to the Epic, the key is the creation of Enkidu, the double of Gilgamesh. Direct intervention of the gods, to calm down the havoc being wrecked in Uruk-let’s have two of them strutting around now, and let the games begin in Mesopotamia. It is a grand narrative.

    The Holy Tablets , Nayya Malachi Zodok-El ! This Holy Scripture Is Needed . The Holy Tablets Come From The Ancient Original Tablets Inscribed In Cuneiform , Later Borrowed , And In Part To Form What Became The Torah , Which Became The Holy Bible , Which Yielded Many Scriptures , Old As Well As The New Testament , And Even Later , The Holy Qur'an Or Koran . This Is By Far The Greatest Of All , For It Contains All They Were Trying To Express But Couldn't , Because They Didn't Have The Whole Truth And All The Facts .

    A very nice section to start with, at the beginning of the epic. What a riot that Gilgamesh must have caused, running around Uruk that way.

    Enkidu, created from Aruru and Anu, and his semi-divine nature revealed. And his wildness, tamed in the next section.

    Lovely, Daniyal, thank you for that selection.
