The Epic of Gilgamesh

Give examples of the capriciousness of the pagan gods in this story. How does this contrast with the character of the true God of the Scriptures?

Please Help!!

Ishtar is probably the most capricious of the gods, although certainly none of the gods in this story have the character of the "true God of the scriptures" that Christians believe in.  As the goddess of love and fertility, she can be loving and nurturing.  As the goddess of war, she can be spiteful and vengeful.  All in all, she has a personality that is "up and down," almost kind and cruel at the same time.
