Utu accepted his tears. He changed his hands into { gazelle } { (1 ms. has instead:) snake } hands, he changed his feet into { gazelle } { (1 ms. has instead:) snake } feet, so he evaded the demons, and escaped with his life to the holy sheepfold, his sister's sheepfold. He approached the holy sheepfold, his sister's sheepfold. Ĝeštin-ana cried toward heaven, cried toward earth. Her cries covered the horizon completely like a cloth, they were spread out like linen. She lacerated her eyes, she lacerated her face, she lacerated her ears in public; in private she lacerated her buttocks.
