……, and I named it the Keše-kug canal. I named it the Pabi-luḫ canal, a lasting name worthy to be praised. The watercourse of my city is full of fish, and the air above it is full of birds. The city of the Keše-kug canal is full of fish, and the air above it is full of birds. The watercourse of the Pabi-luḫ canal is full of fish, and the air above it is full of birds. Its abundance brings fish and birds for me to the E-kiš-nu-ĝal. Its banks are lush with licorice, a honey-sweet plant to eat. Its arable tracts grow fine grain sprouting abundantly like a forest.
