Sumerian mythology, Enki allowed humanity to survive the Deluge designed to kill them. The Council of Deities decided total annihilation of man. Enki covertly rescued the human Ziusudra instructing him to build a boat for his family. This is apparently the oldest surviving source of the Noah's Ark myth and other parallel Middle Eastern Deluge myths.
