I have taken my sweet lord from Shamash-shumu-ukin to Kar-Nergal, and I am now bringing him to the camp of the king, my lord.

When Zababa-eriba went out with Shamash-shumu-ukin, Remanni-ilu, the recruitment officer, killed him, and he took his garments with him. And after he had fled from Babylon, he was seized in the camp, saying: "The sagnu-garment which is on my head is that of Remanni-ilu, the recruitment officer; the sagnu-garment which is on his head is that of the king, my lord, who went to see the king, my lord." Remanni-ilu, the recruitment officer, is not a criminal.

They are prosecutors; they are prosecutors. When they speak, they will be able to prove it.

Human

I am a friend. When Shamash-shumu-ukin set out for Kar-Nergal against the camp of the king, my lord, at that time I was in the king's camp.

When Zababa-eriba set out with Shamash-shumu-ukin, he killed Remanni-ilu, the recruitment officer, and took his clothes. And after he had departed and deserted from Babylon, he kept saying in the camp: "The headgear which is on my head is that of Remanni-ilu, the recruitment officer." The headgear which was on his head and which was taken to the king, my lord, is indeed that of Remanni-ilu, the recruitment officer. These men are not friends; they are enemies.

If in these words I have written anything incorrect to the king, my lord, may I die for it.

"Who has seized the son of Bibî? Who has sinned against you? Who has sinned against you?

Later, by way of purification, she called his name 'angry Pazuzu, the son of Hanbi.' In the face of this, mankind humbly bowed down, saying: "This is correct behaviour, reverence!

"This is the stele which the prostitute set up for the son of Ibâ, the farter, and left for posterity."

Indeed in the whole, in the heart of this, there is this teaching for the future: Like one who is lacking in understanding, incompetent, he praised himself, pouring his endless obscenities from his heart.

He himself did the talking, he himself did the praising, he himself did the saying, he himself did the glorifying, and became a proverbial expression and obscenity in the mouth of mankind.

To the king of the lands, my lord: your servant Bel-ushezib. May Bel, Nabû and Shamash bless the king, my lord!

I saw the awe-inspiring radiance of the moon, and the sun set.

He is not seen on the 15th day; he is seen on the 16th day; he is an evil person; he is on the Mannean side, where the enemy is attacking the country.

Now the army of the king, my lord, has taken to Mannea. When they have taken to the streets, they have taken to the cities. They have taken to the steppe, seized the lands, and are destroying the land. The army of the king, my lord, cannot be subdued to any enemy.

The moon was seen with the sun on the 15th day; the city Sidon was not surrounded, the city was not surrounded, its people were not scattered. Now, the Manneans have taken away his cities like this, his people have been plundered, and he has written to his palace. He shall serve the king, my lord, until he comes.

The king, my lord, can be very glad indeed. You will defeat your enemy, conquer your foes, and capture many years of the hands of Bel in Babylon.

If the moon is not seen but becomes visible: there will be hostility in the land.

The Manneans will kill him and turn him into slaves.

The moon and sun are seen together on the 15th day; a strong enemy will raise his weapons against the land; the enemy will tear down your city gate.

Now the army of the king, my lord, has brought his weapons to Mannea, and I have destroyed his royal city. There is nothing in this constellation that is good for the king, my lord, and his land.

Now then, four emissaries and princes of Nippur and the nesekku-officials of Enlil are here in Nineveh. The lord of kings should ask them what the king my lord ordered them to do.

Human

To the king of the lands, my lord: your servant Bel-ushezib. May Bel, Nabû and Shamash bless the king, my lord!

I saw the crescent of the moon but the sun was rising; he may have cleansed it, but it was not to be seen.

Whether it was a crescent, or whether it appeared on the 15th, or whether it will appear on the 16th day, it is an evil portent, and it concerns the Manneans. Wherever an enemy attacks a country, the country will carry this evil portent.

Now the army of the king, my lord, having attacked the Manneans, has captured forts, plundered towns and pillaged the open country. Should it return, it would heap it up and plunder the rest of the country. But should the army of the king, my lord, not go out against the enemy, that would be dangerous.

Last year, when the moon was seen with the sun on the 15th day for 5 consecutive months, did Sidon not carry it? Did the city not fall, were its people not chased away? Now, in accordance with this, the cities of the Mannean will be plundered, his people taken in captivity, and he himself will be encircled in his palace until he will be delivered into the hands of the king, my lord.

The king my lord can be very glad indeed. You will defeat your enemy and vanquish your foes, and you will grasp the hand of Bel in Babylon for many years.

"If the moon is not seen but the crescent is seen, there will be hostilities in the land."

The people of the Mannean king will turn against him and become the king's servants.

"If the moon and the sun are seen together on the 15th day: a strong enemy will raise his weapons against the land; the enemy will tear down the city gates."

Now then the army of the king, my lord, has raised its weapons against the Mannean and will tear down his royal city. There is nothing in these signs that would concern the king, my lord, and his country.

Now then, four elders of noble descent from Nippur, the neshakku priests of Enlil, are on a visit here in Nineveh. The lord of kings should ask them why Shuma-iddin, the governor, has removed the dais of Nippur, an ancient dais built in the distant past, changed its place, and performed an apotropaic ritual on account of it.

I have not yet sent the king my lord's words about the eclipse in my mouth. Now then I am writing to the king my lord.

Whoever carries this eclipse of its evil to the lord of the month, the lord of the day, the guardian of the lord of the throne, wherever it is bright and where the moon his eclipse becomes bright and he keeps destroying it,

The evil of the Westland and its remission to Ur is the gift of Ur. The evil of the 14th day, which is said, the 14th day, is the tashritu of Elam. Where it is brought, we do not know. The eclipse has risen to the north and west; the evil of Elam and the Westland has risen from the east and west, the good of Subartu and Akkad, all of it, which is with all the land. The right and left of the moon are the moon of Akkad, the left and the moon.

Concerning the guard of the scouts ...... who came .

all of it who loves .

The sharabu-priest says .

Let the chief builder do as he deems best .

Human

I could not let the king my lord hear the words about the eclipse from my mouth. Now in compensation I send a written report to the king my lord.

The evil of an eclipse affects the one identified by the month, the one identified by the day, the one identified by the watch, the one identified by the beginning, where the eclipse begins and where the moon pulls off its eclipse and drops it; these people receive its evil.

Sivan III means the Westland, and a decision is given for Ur. The evil of the 14th day, as is said, the 14th day means Elam. The beginning, where the eclipse began, we do not know. The moon pulled the amount of its eclipse to the south and west; that is evil for Elam and the Westland. That it became clear from the east and north, is good for Subartu and Akkad. That it covered all of the moon, is a sign for all lands. The right side of the moon means Akkad, the left side of the moon means Elam, the upper part of the moon means the Westland, the lower part of the moon means Subartu.

Because of the evening watch ...... which came out ...

which covered all of it ......

and everything not ......

the Sharrabu people will say ......

the people of the land must not hear .......

Let the chief exorcist do what he deems best ...... and let the king again remove one prince among the nobles of the Chaldeans or Arameans or ... from his office. These will receive the consequences of the sign, and the king my lord can be happy.

AI Translation

During the eclipse, the moon and Jupiter stood there; the king should be well; its awe-inspiring appearance is a great blessing. The king should be very glad about this. Until the king orders the king to give well-being, the king of the gods of heaven and earth should be praised.

Perhaps the king will say: "The king of the gods wrote me a report of the Sharrabu and the prince." What you wrote is as follows: "The king should go up to his work, and up to his work should be set up, and the king, my lord, may be happy." May Bel and Nabû give all the lands to the king, my lord.

The king gave me the order: "Keep my watch, and tell me whatever you know." Now I have written to the king everything that is good for me and the well-being of the land. I have written twice and thrice before the king.

Human

In the eclipse of the moon Jupiter stood there: well-being for the king, a famous important person will die in his stead. The king should have much trust in this omen. Until someone speaks a message of well-being to the king, how can the king trust? The king of the gods of heaven and earth sent a message of well-being to the king my lord.

Maybe the king will say: "The king of the gods sent me a message of well-being; why then did you write of the Sharrabu people and of a prince?" I say as follows: Let the king be concerned about his work and be set to his work, and let the king my lord become happy. May Bel and Nabû give all lands as substitute for the king my lord.

The king gave order to me: "Keep watch for me, and whatever you know tell me." Now I have written to the king whatever appears correct and propitious to me and what is good to the king my lord. Let them read the text two or three times before the king so that the king can penetrate the words. Let the king discern that I wrote true words to the king my lord.

Your servant Amel-Nabû: I would gladly die for the king, my lord! May Nabû and Marduk bless the king, my lord! Say to the king, my lord:

The king said to me: "Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go under my protection!" Let a messenger of the king come and see the king's land, which the king had returned and given to me. I have brought Mannu-ki-Urbail to the rescue. He has taken my barley, my straw, and my straw and has said: "Go, and give the king a gift!" When the king gave your land, I will come and give you everything.

Now the king has come out of the midst of my field, saying: "I will not make any claim." Now without any explanation ... for my own consumption and for my seed and barley. If there is anything wrong with me, why should I die? The king should be able to live and to prosper.
