On this very day, as evening approaches, the first of the seven is a fox with a sweeping tail. The second snuffles around like a dog. The third pecks greedily at caterpillars like a raven. The fourth overpowers everything like an enormous carrion-eating eagle. The fifth, although not a wolf, will fall upon a black lamb. The sixth screeches like a hawk, when he sits ……. The seventh ……, a shark in the waves. These seven are neither female deities nor male. They hinder a man and hamper a woman; they put aside (?) the woman's weapon. They spread { a stench } { (1 ms. has instead:) lamentation } in the Land, precisely implementing the divine powers of the gods. Ḫendursaĝa, you have great divine powers, more than anyone could require.
