This Hymn is of the Neo-Assyrian period (ca. 8/7th century BC).
"You [the Assyrian King] opened your mouth and cried:
Hear me, O Asshur !
I heard your cry.
I issued forth as a firey glow from the gate of heaven, to hurl down fire and have it devour them...
I drove them up the mountain and RAINED (HAIL) STONES AND FIRE OF HEAVEN UPON THEM."
(Simo Parpola, Assyrian Prophecies, State Archives of Assyria, Vol. IX, Helsinki Univ. Press, 1997)
Now I see that Big Bird had graduated from slaying sucking Babylonian infants to trying to imitate YHWH. How pathetic.
