An, who created gods and humankind, gazed at holy Inana { (1 ms. adds:) and addressed the favourite wife who travels by his side }, unable to describe this arrogance, this arrogance -- An was unable to describe { (1 ms. adds:) to Inana } this arrogance, this arrogance: "My child, …… you did not say …… -- you were able to capture E-ana! Inana, …… you did not say …… -- you were able to capture E-ana! E-ana should be as firm as heaven, { it should not be toppled } { (1 ms. has instead:) its attractions should never be exhausted }. Its name should be 'The Settlement of the Land'. { (1 ms. adds:) It should have no rival. } Mankind, all of the people, should prostrate themselves at her (?) feet." And now, under that sun and on that day, it was indeed so.
