You sent me a message ordering me to work on the construction of the great fortification Murīq-Tidnim. { You presented yourself before me } { (1 ms. has instead:) A messenger presented himself before me }, announcing: "The Martu have invaded the land." { You instructed me } { (1 ms. has instead:) You have imposed on me as a task (?) } to build the fortification, so as to cut off their route; also, that no breaches of the Tigris or the Euphrates should cover the fields with water.
