1st creation genesis regards the creation of God from the waters chaos in a very dark place. The conflict is stormy and has an abrupt start. Creation initiated when God started pushing the chaotic waters. This conception prompted that a natural danger for creatures is the water but this water is also a danger for the world’s creator (Brostrom 76).
The second generation of creation myth provides a view which is contrary. The beginning of the story is with creation looking for water in order to gain a potential realization understanding.
From this, it becomes evident that creation myths of Egypt and Hebrew have the same foundation. Each of these myths is created to focus over the environment that is the nature with skies and sun and moon (Emerton 231). A crucial role was played within the order of the cosmos by the river Nile because of the floods annually. This was the same notion in the mythology of Hebrews.
Conclusion: Influence of Egyptian religion over Jewish conception
The above two sections of this essay have provided a brief analysis over the religious texts of both concerned religion with examples. The contrast between the expressed God conception in the wisdom texts of Egyptians and the Jewish texts have delivered a base to let understand the Proverbs concept and the theology that it tried to relate with. This theology has its representation in Deuteronomy of the cult of Israelite (Emerton 231). The conception of God is applied in the literature of wisdom for grounding the teachings of morality towards an objective which is external such as himself through God. This principle of grounding draws implicitly the religious association of the background of the culture in Israelite and the Egyptian culture.
