After the death of Enkindu, Gilgamesh was obsessed with his own morality. " for his friend Enkidu he wandered over the wilderness as a hunter, he roamed over the plains; in his bitterness he cried ‘How can I rest, how can I be at peace? Despair is in my heart. What my brother isnow, that shall I be when I am dead. Because I am afraid of death". Death of Enkidu had a huge impact on Gilganesh, turned him into an ordinary human-being with fear

Gilgamesh made mistake

Gilgamesh went through long and tough journey to find way being immortal but finally fail. Death is inevitable. " Gilgamesh travelled over the wilderness, he wandered over the grasslands, a long journey, in search of Utnapishtim, whom the gods took after the deluge; and they set him to live in the land of Dilmun, in the garden of the sun; and to him alone of men they gave everlasting life". He made mistakes, like anyone in this world but he finally learn something and became true hero

Job's mistake in pain (challenges of God)

Job was suddenly lost all thing he had because of God's challenge. Although he kept his faith strongly but even a man like Job can not avoid the moment when he desperated and indirectly blame God "“May the day perish on which I was born,

And the night in which it was said,

‘A male child is conceived.’

May that day be darkness;

May God above not seek it,

Nor the light shine upon it.

May darkness and the shadow of death claim it;

May a cloud settle on it;

May the blackness of the day terrify it.

As for that night, may darkness seize it;

May it not rejoice among the days of the year,

May it not come into the number of the months.

Oh, may that night be barren!

May no joyful shout come into it!

May those curse it who curse the day,

Those who are ready to arouse Leviathan.

May the stars of its morning be dark;

May it look for light, but have none,

And not see the dawning of the day;

Because it did not shut up the doors of my mother’s womb,

Nor hide sorrow from my eyes."
