Translation

16       Belly, O belly!

17–18     The belly is strong, the belly is heroic,

19–20     The belly, its two eyes are dazzling.

20–23     'O belly where are you going? To smite a maiden?'

23–27     Pour ... with dust into(?) a bowl of your naked hands, of your ... arms.

28–29    May the belly return to its (original) condition.

29–31     The incantation is not mine; It is the incantation of lord <of incantations>, Ninkilil.
