Youthful Suen, lord, son of the Great Mountain and born of Ninlil, given a good destiny by his grandparents Enki and Ninki -- they have given to him, the just lord of the sky.

Making manifest and perfection, may he lift his head high. May he prolong life and bounty , may he create life for him. His golden emblem is truly outstanding and its form is praiseworthy. He has you to continue the offerings to Father Enlil -- may his days be prolonged for you.
