3–4       His jumps are swift, strong is his bite.

5–6       From his teeth death oozes.

7–8       He carries his semen in his mouth – wherever he bit, he left his offspring.

9–10  May the Sippirûm-tree(?) cross the river hither!

11–12 May it go down to me! May it ascend from its subterranean water!
