Translation

9 (With?) saliva of a dog, of thirst(?), of hunger(?),

10 (with?) a blow on the face, (with) “turning of eyes”,

11 I have hit your(m.) head, I have changed your(m.) mood.

12 Place your(m.) mind with my mind!

13 Place your(m.) decision with my decision!

14 I hold you(m.) back just like Ištar held back Dumuzi,

15 (Just like) Seraš binds her drinkers,

16 (so) I have bound you(m.) with my hairy mouth,

18 with my drooling mouth,

20 May the enemy-woman not come to you!

21 The dog is lying, the boar is lying –

22 you lie forever in between my thighs.

----

23 What is on the green fish will be thrown to the oil; it will be smeared.

----

24 Look at me and rejoice like a harp!

25 Like (through) Seraš may your heart be bright!

26 Shine on me regularly like Šamaš!

27 Renew (yourself) on me like Sîn!

28 ... and may your love be new!

----

29 [.... in? o]il to rub

----

30 May your(m.) two legs walk, Erra-bāni!

31 May your(m.) loins move!

32 May your ligaments follow!

33 May your(f.) heart rejoice!

34 May your(f.) mood be happy!

35 May I swell like a dog!

36 Your(f.) two curves are like a halter – do not throw (them away) from me!

----

37 Incantation of the lover.
