His servant Enkidu { answered } { (1 ms. has instead:) said to } { him } { (1 ms. has instead:) Gilgameš }: "My king, you weep; why does your heart worry? Today I shall retrieve your ball (?) from the nether world, I shall retrieve your mallet (?) from Ganzer." Gilgameš answered Enkidu: "{ If today } { (1 ms. has instead:) If } you are going to go down to the nether world, let me advise you! My instructions should be followed. Let me talk to you! { Pay attention to my words } { (1 ms. has instead:) My words should be followed }!"
