Abstract:

Parallels between the mouth washing and opening rituals and the Eden story suggest that the biblical author was comparing and contrasting human creation with the ritual creation, animation, and installation of a cult statue in order to redefine şelem ʻelohîm as a human being—the living likeness of God tending and serving in the sacred garden"--
