The Odyssey

Biblical writers got inspiration from many previously written texts, such as The Odyssey, (which was also written using the identical underlying literary structure as the Bible), often to make a point, even if only for the scribe himself.

Compare Isaiah’s
Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool with Homer’s Athena and Helen (on separate occasions) being given comfortable chairs and footstools for their feet. (1:130 and 4:136)

Biblical scribes were trying to make their texts better than previously written texts.
