Goddess Hepat is also known as Hebat (translates to “great”). Some references also call her Mari.

So if there is a hebat, is there a shebat? Yes, but not as a deity. It refers to a wand or a rod with which to beat or smite. It could be that Hebat uses a wand to curse.

With Hepat/Hebat, we are also first introduced to the concept of this lady or goddess coming from a “Cedar Land.” One of these trees is also referred to as a pine tree.
