SHE WAS WORSHIPPED AT SUNRISE, NOON, AND SUNSET. "SHAPASH" WAS THE DAUGHTER OF" EL A"ND "ASHERAH." KNOWN AS THE TORCH OF THE GODS SHE SERVED AS A MESSENGER OF THE GODS BECAUSE SHE TRAVELED EASILY ACROSS THE FACE OF THE EARTH. SHE GUARDED THE DEAD IN THE "UNDERWORLD" AT NIGHT AS WELL AS WATCHING OVER ALL THE EARTH IN THE DAY.

IN THE UGARITIC POEM OF "BAAL", "ANATH" RECRUITS "SHAPASH'S" ASSISTANCE BY BESEECHING HER, ON ONE OF HER NIGHTLY JOURNEYS INTO THE "NETHERWORLD", TO RETRIEVE THE INERT BODY OF "BAAL" WHEN HE WAS BELIEVED TO BE DEAD. THEIR STRUGGLE IS EVENTUALLY TERMINATED BY THE SUN-"GODDESS SHAPASH", WHO, GIVES "MOT" A WARNING THAT IT IS USELESS TO CONTINUE THE BATTLE, AND "MOT" SURRENDERS, RECOGNIZING BAAL'S SOVEREIGNTY.
