In case you should not recognise my mother, let me describe her to you. Her name is { Šat-Eštar } { (1 ms. has instead:) Šimat-Eštar }, { …… by her words } { (some mss. have instead:) …… } ……. Her body, face and limbs, and outer appearance are ……. She is the fair goddess of her city-quarter. Her fate has been decided since the days of her youth. Single-handed she keeps in order the house of her father-in-law. She serves humbly before her divine mistress. She knows how to look after Inana's place. She never disobeys the { orders } { (1 ms. has instead:) wishes } of the king. She is energetic and causes possessions to multiply. She is loving, gentle, and lively. By nature she is a lamb, sweet butter, honey, flowing ghee.
