"HEBAT" WAS THE MATRON GODDESS OF MESOPOTAMIA; SHE WAS KNOWN AS "THE MOTHER OF ALL LIVING"." THE ANCIENT HURRIANS WORSHIPPED HER AS THE CONSORT OF TESHUB (THE STORM GOD) AND THE MOTHER OF SARRUMA (KING OF THE MOUNTAINS). THE INCARNATION OF ROYALTY AND BEAUTY, HEBAT IS DEPICTED AS A DOMESTICATED WOMAN WHO IS EITHER SEATED ON A THRONE OR WITH A LION.

THE GREAT GODDESS HEBAT REPRESENTED THE SUN MOTHER AS RULER OF HEAVENLY ENLIGHTENMENT; AS SUCH, SHE CONTROLS THE POWER AND THE LIGHT OF THE SUN...AND PROTECTS WOMEN IN TIMES OF WAR. HEBATS HEADDRESS SUGGESTS THE "FOUNTAIN OF LIFE" AND "CUP OF IMMORTALITY". THE PEACEFUL LION SHOWS HOW SHE IS INTERCONNECTED WITH THE ANIMAL KINGDOM. HER NURSING BABY IS THE NUMINOUS EVER-COMING CHILD OF LIGHT.

HEBAT ALSO PARALLELS THE HEBREW GODDESS ASHTORETH WHO WAS FREQUENTLY SHOWN FLANKED BY LIONESSES OR STANDING ON TOP OF A LION. THRESHING FLOORS WERE DEDICATED TO HEBAT, POSSIBLY EVEN THE ONE DAVID PURCHASED ON MOUNT MORIAH WHERE KING SOLOMON BUILT HIS TEMPLE.
