    ..., all of them, above and below.

    ... to Anu the guarding of his instructions,

    ... he installed as watch.

    ... he planned the ways of the Underworld.

    In heaven and the Underworld, he settled 600 gods.

    After he had given all of them their instructions

    and divided their shares to the Anunnaku of heaven and Underworld,

    the Anunnaku opened their mouths

    to speak to Marduk, their lord:

    "Now, lord, who brought about our freedom,

    "what good things can we do for you?

    "Let us build a cult dais whose name is called.

    "Your cella shall be our stopping place; we shall rest therein.

    "We shall lay out the cult dais and install its emplacement. On the date that we achieve this, we shall rest therein."

    When Marduk heard this, his appearance brightened greatly, like the day, and he said:

    "Build Babylon and do the work that you request! May its brickwork be moulded and build the cult dais high!"

    The Anunaku wielded the hoe. The first year they made bricks.

    When the second year arrived, they raised the upper part of Esaggil, a copy of the Apsu,

    and built the upper ziggurat of the Apsu.

    For the gods ... and Anu, they established his ... as dwelling.

    In majesty he sat before them and its Esaggil's horns faced the foundations of Eshara.

    After they had done the work of the Esaggil, all the Anunnaku created their own cult daises.

    The 300 lit. 5 sixties Igigi of the heavens and the 600 of the Apsu all gathered.

    The lord, on the exalted dais which they had created as his dwelling,

    seated the gods, his fathers, at his banquet saying: "This is Babylon, the seat of your love.

    "Sing joyfully at this place so that they shall speak of its joy!"

    The great gods sat down.

    They put down zarbabu-vessels and sat down at the banquet.

    After they had performed a joyful nigûtu-song inside it Esaggil,

    they performed the taqribtu-ritual in the awe-inspiring Esaggil.

    All the instructions and plans were established.

    All the gods divided the positions of heaven and Underworld.

    The great gods, fifthy of them, sat down and

    the seven gods of destinies were established firmly to give decisions.

    The lord presented the bow, his weapon, and laid it down before them.

    The gods, his fathers, examined the net which he had made,

    they saw how skilful the bow's appearance was

    and praised the deeds which he had done, his fathers.

    Anu raised it the bow in the assembly of the gods and said

    and kissed the bow: "May this be my daughter!"

    'I am a slanderer, whether he is a slanderer, or a slanderer,

    The Bow star is its name. It is spelled in the sky.

    I established the cultic rites which are with the gods, her friends,

    After the fates of the bow Anu .

    He gave and the throne of kingship, which is high among the gods,

    Anu seated her in the assembly of the gods.

    They gathered and the great gods : the destiny of Marduk they established for them.

    They have sworn by their own name,

    They swore by water and oil: "Since he was born, he has been deprived of life."

    he gave him, and the kingship of the gods he did.

    They have entrusted him to the lordship of the gods of heaven and earth.

    He made Ashur and Asalluhi bow down at my feet.

    To his speech speak! We shall open the window.

    May the gods appoint him to the position of a sage,

    By his command, may it be supreme above and below.

    May it be well, may it be well.

    May the goddess Ishtar look upon his mouth.

    May their gods and their goddesses be satisfied with their bread offerings.

    "May his years be long!"

    May it be a supplication, may it be a supplication.

    Marduk, whose father Anu had engendered from his childhood,

    Who establishes supplication and prayer, who makes rejoicing joyful,

    Whom with his weapon the flood swept over,

    The gods, his fathers, have sinned against me.

    'May it be the son of Shamash, who is reverent among the gods,

    May they go forth in his bright light constantly.

    The people who created me, the life of the people,

    They perform the ritual of the gods and they are sated.

    He named the names of the bow thus:

    'Longwood' shall be the first, the second shall be ...

    its third name, 'Bow-star', he revealed in heaven.

    He established its station with the gods, its companions.

    After Anu had determined the destinies of the bow,

    he erected the throne of kingship which was the highest among the gods.

    Anu placed it in the assembly of the gods.

    The great gods assembled, they raised Marduk's destiny above their own and prostrated themselves.

    They spoke a curse to themselves,

    with water and oil they swore and grasped their throats.

    They gave him the exercise of kingship over the gods,

    they established him firmly for the lordship of the gods of heaven and Underworld.

    Anshar gave him his additional name Asalluhi saying:

    "At the mention of his name, we shall show submission,

    "at his utterances, the gods shall pay attention,

    "his speech shall be supreme above and below.

    "The son, our avenger, shall be very exalted.

    "He shall have them smell the incense offering and rejoice at their sustenance.

    "He shall do on earth the equivalent of what he did in heaven.

    Whom Tiamat has imposed a slanderous oath : he is a slanderer, he is a slanderer.

    The utterance of the pious, who does not fear the gods, their entire being,

    May Addu or his name be revealed and the totality of heaven be revealed.

    . . . may he keep . . . in the earth.

    . . . may they make me prosper.

    Human

    on account of whose power none other among the gods ....

    GIShNUMUNAB, creator of all the people, builder of the four edges,

    destroyer of Tiamat's gods, maker of people from their parts.

    LUGALABDUBUR, the king, who scattered Tiamat's deeds and removed her weapon,

    whose foundation is firm in front and rear : PAGALGUENNA, pre-eminent one of all the lords, whose strength is sublime,

    who is the greatest among the gods, his brothers, lord of all of them : LUGALDURMAH, king of the bond of the gods, lord of the cosmic rope,

    who is the greatest in the royal residence, most exalted among the gods.

    ARANUNA, adviser of Ea, creator of the gods, his fathers,

    whose way of rulership no god can equal.

    DUMUDUKU, who renews for himself his pure dwelling in Duku2,

    Dumuduku, without whom Lugalduku3 does not decide a verdict.

    LUGALShUANNA, the king whose strength is ... among the gods : the lord, strength of ... supreme ...

    IRUGGA, plunderer of them all inside the sea : who gathered all intelligence and is of wide wisdom.

    IRQINGU, who plundered Qingu like an enemy in a battle : organizer of all instructions, establisher of lordship.

    KINMA, commander of all the gods, giver of advice,

    at whose name the gods tremble fearfully like a reed in a storm wind.

    ESISKUR shall sit high up in the house of prayer and

    the gods shall bring in their presents before him : until he receives their gifts.

    No one else of the gods creates artful things : the four regions of black-headed people are his creation,

    Apart from him, none of the gods knows the plan of their days : GIRU, establisher of the projection of a weapon,

    who created artful things in the battle with Tiamat : who is wide in intelligence, competent in wisdom,

    a deep heart that the gods in their totality do not understand.

    ADDU shall be his name, he shall cover the whole of heaven,

    ... shall rumble loudly over the earth,

    ... shall reach fullness and

He shall take a kimtu and sallatu, and let me bring the lamb to the house of the mayor.

    To his remission, Shu-Ninurta has sinned. He has sinned. He has sworn a pledge to the gate of the mayor of Nippur. To Tukulti-Ea, the guarantor of the gate, he shall swear. Say, "Let me enter and see," and may I see. Hazanni, the gatekeeper, to his owner the pledge shall swear. My lord, the citizen of Nippur, has seized your gate and brought to you the pledge. The mayor has sinned with the gatekeeper Tukulti-Ea.

Before the manager, Shu-Ninurta, before Hazannu, in his entrance, to his supplication he smote. The base of his throne he smashed, he smashed, he smashed, to Hazannu may Enlil and Nippur bless him. To Hazannu may Adad and Nusku make his enemies bow down.

    The mayor to the son of Nippur speaks a word. What is your debt and the kashir-offerings? Shu-Ninurta to the mayor of Nippur has brought. At that time, in a hostile manner, I was frightened, and my limbs were not loosened. In the district of the city of Nippur I was frightened, and my lord was angry with me. I said to him as follows: "You shall go out and in my tavern, there is no food, there is no rations.

    He hears and he screams at my gate. He is afraid and afraid. Let me give and I shall bring it to the captain. The ... I have sworn to my heart. ... the chariot driver ... ... ... ... ... ... ... a table ... a horse ...

    Because of one payment of the temendanu offerings, of one or three ribetu offerings, the administrator heard, and all day he sinned. Shu-Ninurta to the palace of the prince has set his face. By order of the king, prince, and governor he shall divide his case. True verdict: Shu-Ninurta before the prince entered, and he sat down. The ground before him he raised, and his hands the king of the world he presented. The lord who is a scepter, the protective spirit,

  • Let them give me one chariot at your command, and
  • On the first day, wherever he goes, I will achieve my wish. That of my days, the debt of 1 mina of gold, I will not carry it. The ruler will exercise your wish.

New nebha-vessel, the emblem of his ..., he will be sated with it. A chariot, the great emblem, to his city Duranki he will be set up.

    Shu-Ninurta gathered 2 birds and sat down and performed the ritual. He went to the gate of the mayor of Nippur and the mayor stood before him. The mayor sat down. Who is your lord who is a stranger? The king, your lord, wrote to me in Duranki. In Ekur, the temple of Enlil, he brought gold and the mayor to give his rations, give him a shumu-sheep,

    Ditto before him he was angry and said to him. Shu-Ninurta, in the beginning of the mayor, to the watch of the night sat. The mayor of Manahtu, the shittu-demon, Shu-Ninurta, in the night, was very frightened and opened the gate of that quppu and sent word. The mayor of the morning sat and ... ... opened the gate of that quppu and presented it to him. Shu-Ninurta, in his wrath, made his heart happy.

    He seized and upon the mayor a hand-lifting he made him. From his head to the base of his feet his proportions he smashed, a smashed sailor he imposed upon him. The mayor from his head to the sacrificial sheep he seized. My lord, the citizen of Nippur, do not neglect the good deeds. May Enlil, your hands, not approach him. If they are to him and for his own life 2 minas of gold, as the one who had made them rich, gave him.

Written by Nabû-rihtu-ahi, the shabtu-priest, son of the 'father' of Nabû-kurash the eunuch. He should bring Qurdi-Nergal, who is the favorite of Edish, to the presence of the god Nabû, who dwells in Ezida. His offspring are his.

    By your command may they hear your name.

    In your heart . . . for good fortune .

    Give me life so that I may be sated with life forever!

    You put bracelets of tin on his hands and his feet.

    You tie a belt of lead around his hips. You smear his left eye with ointment.

    You will cancel the evil signs that keep on occurring against me and you will remove from the house of the man the evil ominous part that has been placed in his omen.

    Remove from me the evil sign that exists in my house.
