Asherah in Deuteronomy 33?
“The oldest (biblical) **** in, which we meet the goddess Asherah is probably the ancient hymn I Deut. 33:2-3:
YHWH came from Sinai
and shone forth from his own Seir,
He showed himself from Mount Paran.
Yea, he came among the myriads of Qudhsu,
at his right hand his own Asherah,
Indeed, he who loves the clans
and all his holy ones on his left.
Accepting a minor correction to the ****, it is possibly the only passage in which Asherah is mentioned as YHWH's spouse or companion under her own name, and under her title Qodesh/Qudshu. In it, YHWH leads the myriads of Qodesh, which apparently may include gods and men, the heavenly and earthly family of El. This image closely resembles the mythical de******ions in the Ugaritic ****s.”
