Translation

1         Anger comes like a wild bull,

2–3     Keeps [ju]mping like a dog.

4–5     Like a lion it is fierce-ranging,

6–7     Like a wolf it is full of ferocity.

8–9     - Sit down! I will walk through you like (over) a threshold,

10–11  I will pass back and forth through you like (through) an Arkabinnu-door.

12–14  I will hang above you like a lintel.

15–16  Like (with) a restraining-rope, I will curb your step.

17–18  I will take out the fire of your heart.
