I2 1 At the beginning of the invisibility of the moon, at the beginning of the month,
I2 2–3 Ea, the great lord, stood at my side, (saying:)
I2 3–5 “Take a wooden spade and a copper axe, and make a window at the top.
I2 5–6 Release bird, let it find for you a shore!”
I2 7–8 I heeded the words of Ea, my great lord and advisor.
I2 9–10 I took a wooden spade and a copper axe. I made a window at the top above me.
I2 11–12 I released a dove, strong-of-wings.
I2 12–13 She went forth and came back, exhausted her wings.
I2 14 I did this again and released a crane.
