The Ugaritic Pantheon.

The prophets of the Old Testament rail against Baal, Asherah and various other
gods on nearly every page. The reason for this is simple to understand; the
people of Israel worshipped these gods along with, and sometimes instead of,
Yahweh, the God of Israel. This Biblical denunciation of these Canaanite gods
received a fresh face when the Ugaritic texts were discovered, for at Ugarit
these were the very gods that were worshipped.
