I heard news that the hostile Martu have entered inside your territories. { I entered with 72,000 gur of grain } { (1 ms. has instead:) 72,000 gur of grain was brought } -- the entire amount of grain -- inside Isin. Now I have let the Martu, all of them, penetrate inside the Land, and one by one I have seized all the fortifications therein. Because of the Martu, { I am unable to hand over } { (2 mss. have instead:) I am unable to make …… } this grain for threshing. They are stronger than me, while I am condemned to sitting around.
