1-5 - ... The task of its marshes, of the great arable lands and the fields, of the fruit orchards that bear pure , of food and drink for the Anuna gods -- all this was bestowed on him by Father Enlil and the great mother Ninlil.
6-12 - August Nibru! No deity excels like your lord and lady! They are powerful princes; they are brilliantly revealed deities. No deity excels like Enlil or Ninlil! They are powerful princes; they are lords who can decide destinies. In your midst they have given divine powers to King Enki. Nibru, your holy songs are exceptionally precious, surpassing all praise! I, Icme-, have placed them in everyone's mouths for all time.
