…… the prince of gods …… seated upon all the divine powers, Nunamnir, the lord of just decrees, who possesses fully the great divine powers, Father Enlil, made your fearsomeness manifest in heaven and on the earth. He made the gods of heaven stand by in heaven (?), and gave them (?) auspicious names. …… its king ……. (1 line fragmentary)The Anuna, its great gods, line up before you. Enlil, they pay attention to your holy words and august statements. Nunamnir, you alone are elevated in the entirety of heaven and earth. …… of the Anuna gods, august shackle on all the lands, your …… is unfathomable. Everything this lord has is surpassing, and his orders are not to be changed. …… your divine powers surpass all others, your ways are ingenious, …… you are the trustworthy shepherd even of far-away foreign countries. Father Enlil, your beloved …… E-kur, has been built in Ki-ur, in Dur-an-ki, the place chosen by you; your august dais has been set up there. The divine powers of your shrine are precious, its true purification rites are august, and its cultic ordinances are pure and ineffable. The interior of E-kur is artfully fashioned, and no one may come to know it. Let Išme-Dagan care properly for its true divine plans and powers!
