1        Of the king of all Igigū-gods, the lord of the mountains,

2        the sovereign of the Enunakū-gods, Marduk, let me sing.


3        Let me sing of the devastating merciless storm, the shade of the heaven,

4        who swiftly sends forth the storms, the seven winds, who conquers his evil enemies.


5        A blazing (fire), he overwhelms, a consuming flame, he sticked in the heart.

6        The god of power, strong, lord of the war, … the four winds, the storms.


7        His right hand holds the entire collection of divine numina …

8        At his (Marduks) anger, the bird of the land of the disobedient wastes away in the trap.


9        In the pure subterranean sea, he is Asalluḫi. Above, in the heaven, his name is An.

10      All (divine numina) are placed in front of him. Marduk is the pleasant Tutu.


11      The divine plans are filled in his hand.

12      He crushed the raging mountains. He is perfect.


13      He frightens the land of the disobedient. He captures the enemies.

14      Imposed are his weapons. He has no opponent.


15      … provider, Mutiabal.

16      … day/storm … day/storm …
