2–3 [The woman, when walking about, wobbles like a boat],

4 [… The woman(?), when walking about], wobbles like a boat,

5 [… The woman(?), when walking] about, wobbles like a boat,

6 [… The woman(?)], when walking about, wobbles like a boat,

7 The horizon, when she is walking about, wobbles like a boat.

8 Like a boat (carrying) aromatics, she is filled with aromatics,

9 Like a boat (carrying) cedar, she is filled with cedar,

10 Like a boat (carrying) aromatics and cedar, [she is filled] with aromatics and cedar,

11 Like a boat (carrying) carnelian and lapis-lazuli, [she is filled] with carne[lian and lapis lazuli],

12 Is it carnelian? she knows not; Is it lapis-lazuli? she knows not.

13 She wobbles towards the quay of celebrations.

14 Marduk [observed this],

15 (Sum.) [To his father Enki, into the house he came in, calling to him… …]:

16-18 (Sum.) - “[Father: the woman, about to give birth, leads the boat in the water; the woman, about to give birth, leads the boat in the water]”

19 (Sum.) [When saying this for the second time… …],

21 (Sum.) [Enki answers his son Asarluḫi]:

23 (Sum.) - “[Asarluḫi, what could I say to you? What could I add to you?... …]”

25 (Sum.) “[What I know, you (also) know yourself… …]”,

27 “[What] you know [yourself], I [know] (too)”.

28  “Come [Marduk)”,

29 “When [taking] a reed of the Little Marsh of Eridu”,

30 “Pour the fat-milk of a pure cow, and the cream of [a mother cow]”,

31  “dust from a crossroads”,

… …

34  “[…] mix together […]”

35 “break it [above her navel]!”

36 [If] it is a boy, they [look]ed at his “weapon”,

37 [If] it is a g[irl], they [look]edat[h]er [“crucible”(?)],

38  (Sum.) … …

39 May he come out [(to the light?)]

40  [Incantation] for [a woman] in labor.
