Today (?) Enlil loathes Sumer and has elevated to the shepherdship of the Land an ape which has { descended } { (2 mss. have instead:) come forth } from those mountain lands. { Now Enlil has given kingship to a dishonest man, { a seller of } { (1 ms. has instead:) who values } asafoetida } { (1 ms. has instead:) At this moment Enlil …… to somebody who sells asafoetida, a peripatetic criminal } -- to Išbi-Erra, who is not of Sumerian origin.
