Translation

1–2     Fire has been inflamed in the p[ure?] heaven,

3         The sikkatum-disease (pox?) has fallen

4         over the entire herd,

5         burned up

6         the kids, the lambs

7         and the children on the shoulders of the nurse.

8–9       Speak to my mother, Nin-girim:

10         “May the face of the herd be bright!

11         May Sumuqan rejoice!

12         May the herb rejoice!

13         May the path be happy!”

14         May I keep carefully placing solar-disks

15         on the pedestals of the great gods

16         appropriately.

17         Incantation for a sheep (inflected) with sikkatum
