1-13 - May Enlil, king of heaven and earth, whose utterances are trusty and whose words are , the shepherd Rm-, my king . May he who gives him life-giving (?) food-offerings in Nibru stand in prayer before him. May Enlil bestow upon him grain, the benefit of mankind. May he pass his time in joy in the of his country. They will Rm- my king. May he strengthen for him his royal throne and extend his reign. May he decree his sceptre for the south and the uplands. May he make the king's inferiors bow down before him. The offerings of Rm- my king, small or great, at Nibru in the E-kur . Syrup shall drip like ghee from its fingers. I am as the son of one man, honey and ghee. My king, let offerings in my joy. They give me silver .
14-25 - ... I am like a man's son. ... , may he you. Alone (?) Rm-, my king, like syrup and ghee. ... Enlil, his Great Mountain, in accordance with your name may Rm- be your Great Mountain. May Ninurta declare life for you, and may Ninnibru, the lady who founds cities, , enclose you mercifully and kindly to protect your life. May Nincubur, whom Nanna declared (?), good fortune on your head, and declare life for you. ...
