3 2 turn (text: against) [your breast] 3whatever evil! Your incantation is life, (O) Marduk! Your incantation is health, [(O) Asalluḫi!]

4 (O) lord your incantation is life, (O) Marduk!  (O) lion-dragon of heaven (and) earth [(…)]

5 among the gods, above and below, your incantation has no rival! Ev[il one]

6 depart before me! I am, (yes) I am the man of the hero Asalluḫi,

7 the foremost son of Eridu! Whatever evil, whatever unpleasant,

8 whatever causing (me) not to live, what is not good for my body, ‹on› the command of Enki

9 I will make you standup! May the window send (you) out! May the door-lintel let (you) go out!

10 Whatever evil, whatever unpleasant there is in your body and muscles,

11 may, the wise leader, the exorcist of the gods, the apkallu-priest Asalluḫi rip it out from your body!
