Translation

1 INCANTATION:  Fire of a violent storm! Fire of battle! It grasped the rope from above!

2 It devoured the forests, it devoured the reed-thicket, it paralyzed the young man among his brothers,

3 it paralyzed the young girl between his! (text: her) breasts, it paralyzed the oxen and the cows, it paralyzed the sheep

4 and the animal stall. –“You have eaten my flesh!”- Why are you gnawing on

5 his bones? ?  May you not eat bones! You should not eat rotten flesh and rotten sinews!

6 (So) go up into the pure mountains! Eat the acorns and the terebinth,

7 the best fruit among fruit to prepare a meal! (So) go down (into the reed-thickets) and eat

8 the pure? cumin! Like water from the gutter that does not return,

9 so may the išātu-fever not return to its place!  Like a rib of palm-frond does not return to its date palm,

10 so may the išātu-fever not return to its place! INCANTATION.
