Lady supreme over the foreign lands, who can take anything from your province? { Once you have extended your province over the hills } { (2 mss. have instead:) If you frown at the mountains }, vegetation there is ruined. Their { great gateways } { (1 ms. has instead:) palaces } are set afire. Blood is poured into their rivers because of you, and their people { must drink it } { (2 mss. have instead:) could not drink }. They must lead their troops captive before you, all together. They must scatter their élite regiments for you, all together. They must stand their able-bodied young men at your service, all together. Tempests have filled the dancing-places of their cities. They drive their young men before you as prisoners. Your holy command has been spoken over the city which has not declared "The foreign lands are yours!", wherever they have not declared "It is your own father's!"; and it is brought back under your feet. Responsible care is removed from its sheepfolds. Its woman no longer speaks affectionately with her husband; at dead of night she no longer takes counsel with him, and she no longer reveals to him the pure thoughts of her heart. Impetuous wild cow, great daughter of Suen, lady greater than An, who can take anything from your province?
