Assyro-Babylonian Mythology/Creation Myths:
When on high the heaven had not been named,
Firm ground below had not been called by name,
Naught but primordial Apsu, their begetter,
[And] Mummu-Tiamat, she who bore them all,
Their waters co-mingling as a single body;
No reed hut had been matted, no marsh land had appeared,
When no gods whatever had been brought into being,
Uncalled by name, their destinies undetermined--;
Then it was that the gods were formed within them.
From: The Enuma Elish: Babylonian story of the creation  (c1900-1300 BC)
