    After he had sinned, he swore evilly by his weapon He did not bring the divine powers into the Abzu He did not bring the divine powers into the Abzu He did not bring the divine powers into the Abzu He did not bring the divine powers into the Abzu He did not bring the tablets of the destinies into the Abzu He did not bring the divine powers into the Anzu he was able to speak to the hero Ninurta He was able to speak to Ninmena He was able to make the divine powers enter into the Abzu He did not make the divine powers enter into the shrine like the gods of the Abzu He did not complete the divine powers of the Abzu

    The hero Ninurta, the Anzu bird, took hold of his hand. He went to the place of Enki and returned to the abzu. Utaulu, the Anzu bird, returned to the abzu. The lord rejoiced over the hero, father Enki rejoiced over the hero Ninurta. The lord, Nudimu, spoke truthfully to the hero, the god of your brothers, the god who is like you, the bird with your mighty weapon. You stand at the side of the storm, the storm

    The great gods may they make your heroism manifest, may your father and Enlil make your command manifest Ninmena, may you be your favorite, may you be your favorite, may you be the one who has no rival In the month of the shrine Abzu, may you be the one who opens your temple May the great heavens be your name May the hero's destinies not rejoice in his place of rest, may it not be ruined, its heart will be happy, its heart will be happy, its heart will change, its heart will change,

    The one who speaks a word that has no rival, speaks a lie, the hero Ninurta has set his eyes on the netherworld, he does not speak a lie, he does not ... his heart.

Thus my raised eye goes where it wishes? Thus my "free will" confronts? what it wishes My fixed sayings/affairs? that were written By the life of my father, holy lugalbanda!

    The matter?, that which the eye surveys The circumscribed limits of life The bile/poison of the "land/netherworld of oppression," a man cannot cast aside? He is!? one who trusts in his own might And thus one who trusts his great name Makes everything the best, why would he diminish them?

    The people of Ur were seized by their strength, they were seized by weapons. The city was seized by weapons, it was not given to them. The city was seized by weapons, it was not given to them. The city was seized like water, it was not given to them. The city was seized by its eyes, it was seized by its head. The people were seized by the water. The king seized the house of his friend, he was seized by rage. Its people were seized by weapons, they were seized by weapons, they were seized by a rage.

    They have been speaking to each other, they have been speaking to each other, they have been speaking to each other, they have been speaking to each other, they have been speaking to each other, they have been speaking to each other in the gate of the garassu. In Ur, there is death, there is death, there is death, there is life. In Ur, there is life, there is life. In that place, there is nothing to be done. In that place, the weapons of Elam have been brought to an end. In Ur, the enemy has been seated, let them be brought to an end. They have been speaking to each other, they have been speaking to each other.

    The gates were smashed with a bolt, the doors were hung open, Elam was smashed like a great flood, and its foot was smashed. In Ur, the weapons were smashed like a sahar jar, and its people were smashed like a smashed sahar jar. The wall was smashed like a smashed sahar jar. Like a fish, it was smashed like a smashed sahar jar. The enemy dwelled in the Ekishnugal of Nanna. The enemy sat down with the holy holy stag. The lions sat down with their heads. Nineigar, the great agrig, seized the enemy.

    The throne was taken away from its front, it was thrown into the dust The supreme throne was taken away from its rear The throne was taken away from its rear The throne was taken away from its rear The throne was taken away from its rear Like sheep, the grass was eaten by weapons The date palm was smashed like a date palm The date palm was smashed like a date palm The mighty date palm, the weapon of heroism, was thrown away like a date palm The trembling of the top was smashed The head was thrown into the dirt The one who did not know his fate The trembling of the top was smashed The head was smashed like a smashed palm

Because of this, in my bed chamber of the night Calm sleep is not put in? my bedchamber of the night Because of this, the silencing of the bedchamber If only ... would also bring the silencing of the bedchamber Because anathema was placed in? my land for me!? Like a cow with its calf, it ... the ground My land, regarding itself?, does not compare with me!?

    Father Nanna, your shib priest, the shrine ... Your lu-mah priest, your giguna priest, your pure heart did not ... the gada The true lord, your joyful heart, did not enter the Ekishnugal temple, from the shrine to the gipar temple, he did not make the festival pleasant for you The a'ua priest, your courtyard of the festival did not make the festival pleasant for you The a'ala priest, who makes everything joyful for you, did not make the tigi priestess bow down to you The saggig priest, who did not drink water, did not drink water, did not make it sweet for you Its foundation was changed, your enunciation was changed, and your enunciation was changed for you Its enunciation was changed for you

    Your tigi was seized by a lion Your tigi was seized by a lion Your ox was seized by a pig Your sheep was seized by a sheep by its sheepfold Your sheep was seized by its sheepfold Your suckling fish was seized by evil intent Your bird was seized by a bird Your bird was seized by a hawk Your canal was seized by a flood Your canal was seized by a fox Your road was seized by a chariot Your canal was seized by a chariot Your city was seized by a mountain Your temple was seized by a raging raging raging raging raging awe Ur was like a child in a street

    Your brickwork, your true temple, is like a man's. I am my lady, I came out from the temple, I came out from the city. I stood in your city like a criminal. Mother Ningal, you have come out from your temple like a place of evil. In his land, you have sat in a cloak. Like a bull, you have sat in your sheepfold. Like a sheep, you have sat in your sheepfold. Like a child, you have sat in your mother. My lady, you have come out from your temple. May An, the king of the gods, speak to you. May Enlil, the king of the lands, decree your fate.

    May your city be restored to its place, may its priesthood be restored to Ur, may its priesthood be restored to its place, may its kirugu be restored to its place, ... may it be restored to its place, may its divine powers be restored to its place, may its geshgigal be restored to its place, may the storm, the storm, the storm that afflicts the land, the great storm of heaven, the storm that screams, the storm that destroys the land, the storm that destroys cities, the storm that destroys houses, the storm that destroys sheepfolds, the storm that afflicts the sheepfolds, the pure garza, he uttered,

    When? the day of the land was favourable,

    Peterson, Jeremiah

    Father Nanna, your ishib priest did not perfect the holy shita prayer? for you Your lumah priest did not wear the shaggada garment Your true en priestess, chosen in the heart for her beauty, the one of the Ekishnugal temple Did not enter as she rejoices? into the gipar structure coming from the shrine The a'ua musicians are not sweetening the festival in your courtyard hosting the festival Neither the shem and ala drums, those which make the heart rejoice, nor the tigi instrument was played for you The blackheaded, who no longer bathed for your festival If!? like a thread ... their life was cut, their features were changed Your songs have become weeping, how long ...?

    Your tigi songs have become lamentation, how long ...? If your bull does not stand in its stall, how long ...? If your sheep does not stand in its fold, how long ...? An evildoer has seized your fisherman who brings fish Your fowler who bring birds hurriedly goes away In your canal, formerly made suitable for a barge, rushes!? grew in its bed On
