Naram-Suen saw in a nocturnal vision that Enlil would not let the kingdom of Agade occupy a pleasant, lasting residence, that he would make its future altogether unfavourable, that he would make its temples shake and would { scatter its treasures } { (1 ms. has instead:) destroy its treasuries }. He realised what the dream was about, but did not put into words, and did not discuss it with anyone. { (1 ms. adds 2 lines:) …… temples shake ……, …… perform (?) extispicy regarding (?) his temple ……. } Because of the E-kur, he put on mourning clothes, { covered his chariot with a reed mat } { (1 ms. has instead:) pulled out the outside pin of his chariot }, tore the reed canopy off { his ceremonial barge } { (1 ms. has instead:) the prow of his ceremonial barge } { (1 ms. has instead:) the cabin of his ceremonial barge }, and gave away his royal paraphernalia. Naram-Suen persisted for seven years! Who has ever seen a king burying his head in his hands for seven years? { (some mss. add the line:) He realised what the dream was about, but did not put into words, and did not discuss it with anyone. }
