ESSAY ON: A Comparison of the Religious Sentiments Found in Akhenaten’s “Hymn to the Sun” and “Psalm 104” of the Hebrew Bible

Number of Pages 4

This research paper: This is a 4 page paper comparing the religious sentiments found in the “Hymn to the Sun” and “Psalm 104”. The Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten (c. 1370 BC) is believed to have greatly changed the religious worship of the Egyptians. In his hymn to the Sun god, “Hymn to the Sun” or “Hymn to Aten”, Akhenaten wrote of the worship of one God, not many, his creation of the universe, the world, darkness and light, the elements of nature and man’s place on earth. This hymn and its religious sentiment was said to have influenced the early Hebrew writings which can be seen in Psalm 104 in the Hebrew Bible. Moses, similar to Akhenaten, prohibited the worship of images by the Hebrews and instead concentrated on the praise of the one God, Yahweh. Psalm 104, using similar language and sentiment, also outlines the one God which created the universe, the world, darkness and light, all the natural elements and man’s place on earth. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
