Translation

1       Anum created her, Ea brought her up,

2       a face of a lioness Enlil fixed for her.

3       She is short of hands, very long

4       of fingers, as to her nails

5       she is very long, her two forearms are smeared(?).

6       She entered the door of the house,

7       slipping through the door socket.

8       Once slipped through the door socket, she saw the child.

9       She seized it seven times in his abdomen.

10      Take off your nails,

11      drop off your arms,

12      before he has reached you,

13      the wise-of-work, Ea the hero!

14      The door socket is wide (enough) for you, open are the doors:

15      Go, walk about the steppe!

16      With dust your mouth,

17      With a whirl-wind your face,

18      With cress seeds finely ground

19      I will verily fill your eyes!

20      I conjure you by Ea's curse:

21      You must go away!
