Obv.
 

1         Incantation (against) Wardat-lilîm.

2         The guide of the god Erra,

3         the weeper(?) of all winds,

4–6         who was cut-off in her prime like a fresh fruit.

7–10         The (girls) spend(f.) time in dancing everyday,

11         The (girls) keep twirling in celebration.

12         At their shout the street shuts away.

13–14         A bridegroom did not deflower her.

17–18         She was canny, she left her parental house.

19–20         She was despised for not [giving birth to] a child.

21–24         And so, her husband, an evil storm, and she, a phantom, are roaming in the steppe.

25–27         I conjure you(f.) by Anum and Antum, Enšēda and Ḫadaniš:

28–29         You will not enter to the house which I enter!

30–31         [Where] I spit you will not touch!
