House positioned over its foundations like a storm, like white bulls standing about on the plain; house founded by the prince, in praise on the tigi instrument! House in whose interior is the power of the Land, and behind which { is the life of Sumer } { (some mss. have instead:) it is filled with life }; at whose gate is a lion reclining on its paws, at whose gate is the ruler who decides cases (?)! House at whose door is the Great Mountain without adversary; { at whose bolt } { (some mss. have here instead:) at whose bar } is a great frisking wild bull { (some mss. add here the line:), at whose bolt is a beast …… a man } { (1 ms. adds here instead the line:), at whose …… is an awe-inspiring lion } ! { Whose well-founded storehouse is a corner of heaven, a corner of earth } { (1 ms. has here instead:) Whose storehouse established as a household is a lance (?) }; whose terrace is supported by laḫama deities; whose princely { (1 ms. adds:) great } wall …… the shrine of Urim! Will anyone else bring forth something as great as Keš? Will any other mother ever give birth to someone as great as its hero Ašgi? Who has ever seen anyone as great as its lady Nintur?
