Translation

1–2      You have already seen the beams of the Sun:

3–4     Why have you not done so in your mother's womb?

5–7      Through your crying the god of the house cannot sleep!     

8–9      Slumber does not catch the goddess of the house!

10–11  - Whom should I send to summon

12–13  the shepherds of sheep, cows, and lambs

14–16  so that they grab for me the slumber of cows and lambs? 

17–19  The incantation is not mine: it is the incantation of Nigirim and Ninkarrak.
