The Epic of Gilgamesh portrays gods as having complete control over humans, although they do not intervene in human actions unless they are displeasing. The gods are not all powerful and under many circumstances must answer one to another. Decisions are most often based on discussion and the wishes of the majority. An example would be when Shamash pleads for the of Enkidu and is overruled.
