Among the Babylonian Genesis myth, "Enuma Elish" is the best known story. This epic is also regarded as the oldest epic in the world. It recorded the great deeds of the gods and the creation of mankind. "Enuma Elish" has a detailed and vivid description of the war between gods. The full story is inscribed on seven clay tablets in over a thousand lines of cuneiform. The following excerption is the first paragraph of the epic:

e-nu-ma e-liš la na-bu-ú šá-ma-mu
When on high the heaven had not been named,
šap-liš am-ma-tum šu-ma la zak-rat
Firm ground below had not been called by name,
ZU.AB-ma reš-tu-ú za-ru-šu-un
Naught but primordial Apsu, their begetter,
mu-um-mu ti-amat mu-al-li-da-at gim-ri-šú-un
Mummu*–Tiamat, she who bore them all, Their waters commingling as a single body; A.MEŠ-šú-nu iš-te-niš i-ḫi-qu-ú-šú-un
No reed hut had been matted, no marsh land had appeared,
gi-pa-ra la ki-is-su-ru su-sa-a la she-'u-ú
When no gods whatever had been brought into being,
e-nu-ma Dingir.Dingir la šu-pu-u ma-na-ma
Uncalled by name, their destinies undetermined—
Then it was that the gods were formed within them.

The whole epic is documented in Akkadian, and the first verse “e-nu-ma e-liš” is regarded as the name of the epic, and can be translated as " When on high ".

The epic records that before the Genesis, the world was in chaos. There was no sky and no earth. Only two primordial gods, Tiamat and Apsu, existed in the world; Tiamat represents the mother of salt water that controls the ocean. Apsu is the father of the freshwater that dominates the river. After united, they gave birth to the Sky God Anu, the Air God Enlil, the Earth God Ea, and more.

However, these new-born gods were guilty of misconduct and caused strifes among the land. The primordial gods Tiamat and Apsu wanted to restore the world to silence as the beginning. The battle between Tiamat and the young gods had begun.

In the fierce war, Tiamat created the eleven divine beasts, including the Reddish Snake "Mušḫuššu", the Great Dragon "Ušumgallu", the Venomous Snake "Bašmu", the Exalted Serpent "Mušmaḫḫū", and so on. They were each composed of different animals with unique powerful abilities. Tiamat led the eleven divine beasts and began to fight against the rebellious gods. At the end of war, she turned into mountains and seas; half of her body formed the sky, the other half turned into the earth, breasts into mountains, saliva into clouds, and eyes into Tigris and Euphrates. Tiamat is not only regarded as the mother of gods but also created this world.
