To Ningishzidda the Anunnaki leaders appealed, how to the people the skies to observe to
In his wisdom stone structures Ningishzidda devised, Ninurta and Ishkur to erect them helped.
In the settled lands, near and far, the people how the skies to observe they taught,
That the sun in the Constellation of the Bull was still rising to the people they showed.
With sorrow did Enki these ongoings watch, how Fate the rightful order twisted he pondered:
After the Anunnaki as gods themselves declared, on Mankind's support they instead are
In the First Region to unify the lands under one leader the Anunnaki decided, a warrior king
To Inanna, of Marduk the adversary, the task of the right man to find they entrusted.
A strong man whom on her journeys she had met and loved, Inanna to Enlil indicated,
Arbakad, of four garrisons the commander, was his father, a high priestess his mother was.
Scepter and crown Enlil him gave, Sharru-kin, Righteous Regent, Enlil him appointed.
As on Nibiru once was done, a new crown city, the lands to unify, was established,
Agade, the Unified City, they named it, not far from Kishi it was located.
By Enlil was Sharru-kin empowered; Inanna with her weapons of brilliance his warriors
All the lands from the Lower Sea to the Upper Sea to his throne obedience gave,
At the borders of the Fourth Region, to protect it, his troops were stationed.
With a cautious eye Ra on Inanna and Sharru-kin constantly gazed, then as a falcon on his prey
From the place where Marduk the tower to heaven reaching to build had attempted,
Sacred soil from there to Agade did Sharru-kin move, therein the Heavenly Bright Object to
Enraged did Marduk to the First Region rush, with Nabu and followers to the tower's place they
Of the sacred soil, I alone the possessor am, by me shall a gateway of the gods be established!
So did Marduk vehemently announce, instructions the river to divert to his followers he gave.
Dikes and walls in the Place of the Tower they raised, the Esagil, House for the Utmost God,
for Marduk they built;

Babili, the Gateway of the Gods, Nabu in his father's honor named it,
In the heart of the Edin, in the midst of the First Region, Marduk himself established!
Inanna's fury no boundary knew; with her weapons on Marduk's followers death she inflicted.
The blood of people, as never before on Earth, like rivers flowed.
To his brother Marduk Nergal to Babili came, for the sake of the people Babili to leave him he
Let us peacefully wait for the true signs of heaven! Nergal to his brother said.
To depart Marduk agreed, from land to land the skies to watch he traveled,
Amun, the Unseen One, in the Second Region was Ra henceforth called.
For a while was Inanna appeased, two sons of Sharru-kin his peaceful successors were.
Then on the throne of Agade Sharru-kin's grandson ascended; Naram-Sin, by Sin Loved, he was
In the First Region Enlil and Ninurta absent were, to the lands beyond the oceans they went;
In the Second Region Ra was away, as Marduk in other lands he traveled;
Her chance in her hands to seize all powers Inanna envisioned, Naram-Sin to seize all lands she
To march against Magan and Meluhha, Marduk domains, Naram-Sin she instructed.
The sacrilege of an Earthlings' army through the Fourth Region passing Naram-Sin committed,
Magan he invaded, the sealed Ekur, House Which Like a Mountain Is, to enter he attempted.
By the sacrileges and transgressions Enlil was infuriated; upon Naram-Sin and Agade a curse &
By a bite of a scorpion did Naram-Sin die, by the command of Enlil was Agade wiped out.
At the count of a thousand and five hundred Earth years did this happen.
Now this is the account of the prophecy by Galzu to Enlil in a vision given;
About Marduk's supremacy it was, how a calamity to survive a man to choose.
After Marduk Amun became, kingship in the Second Region disintegrated, disorder and
After Agade was wiped out, in the First Region there was disorder, confusion reigned.
In the First Region kingship was in disarray, from Cities of Gods to Cities of Man it moved
Unug-ki, Lagash, Urim and Kish, Isin and to faraway places kingship was shifting.
Then Enlil, with Anu consulting, kingship in the hands of Nannar deposited;
To Urim, in whose soil the divine Heavenly Bright Object remained implanted, kingship for the
third time was granted.
In Urim a Righteous Shepherd of men Nannar as king appointed, Ur-Nammu was his name.
Equity in the lands Ur-Nammu established, to violence and strife an end he made, in all the
lands prosperity was abundant.
It was at that time that in the nighttime Enlil a dream-vision had:
The image of a man to him appeared, bright and shining like the heavens he was;
As he approached and by Enlil's bed stood, Enlil the white-haired Galzu recognized!
In his left hand a tablet of lapis lazuli he was holding, the starry heavens on it were designed;
By the twelve constellation signs were the heavens divided, to them with his left hand Galzu
From the Bull to the Ram Galzu his pointing shifted; three times the pointing he repeated.
Then in the dream-vision Galzu spoke up and to Enlil thus said:
The righteous time of benevolence and peace by evildoing and bloodshed will be followed.
In three celestial portions the Ram of Marduk the Bull of Enlil will replace,
One who himself as Supreme God has declared supremacy on Earth will seize.
A calamity as has never before occurred, by Fate decreed, will happen!
As at the time of the Deluge, a righteous and worthy man must be chosen,
By him and his seed will Civilized Mankind, as by the Creator of All intended, be preserved!
So did Galzu, the divine emissary, to Enlil in the dream-vision say.
When Enlil from the nighttime dream-vision awakened, there was no tablet beside his bed.
Was it an oracle from heaven or did I it all in my heart imagine? Enlil to himself wondered.
To none of his sons, Nannar among them, nor to Ninlil did he of the dream-vision tell.
Among the priests in the Nibru-ki temple Enlil of celestial savants inquired,
Tirhu, an oracle priest, to him the high priest indicated.
Of Ibru, of Arbakad the grandson, he was descended, sixth generation of Nibru-ki priests he
With the royal daughters of Urim's kings they were intermarried.
Get yourself to Nannar's temple in Urim, the heavens for celestial time observe:
Seventy-two Earth years is the count of a Celestial Portion, the passage of three thereof
So did Enlil to Tirhu the priest say, the prophesied time he made him count.
While Enlil the dream-vision and its portents pondered, Marduk from land to land went.
Of his supremacy the people he was telling, to followers gain was his purpose.
In the lands of the Upper Sea and the lands on Ki-Engi bordering,
Nabu, Marduk's son, was the people inciting; to seize the Fourth Region was his plan.
Between the dwellers of the west and the dwellers of the east clashes were occurring,
Kings hosts of warriors formed, caravans ceased going, the walls of cities were raised.
What Galzu had foretold indeed is happening! Enlil to himself said.
Upon Tirhu and his sons, of worthy lineage descended, Enlil set his gaze:
This is the man to choose, by Galzu indicated! Enlil to himself said.
To Nannar, without the dream-vision revealing, Enlil to his son thus said:
In the land between the rivers whence Arbakad had come, a city like Urim establish,
A home-abode away from Urim let it for you and Ningal be.
In its midst a temple-shrine establish, the Priest-Prince Tirhu in charge thereof appoint!
By his father's word abiding, Nannar in the land of Arbakad the city of Harran established.
To be high priest in its temple-shrine Tirhu he sent, his family with him;
When two Celestial Portions out of the prophesied three were completed did Tirhu to Harran go.
At that time Ur-Nammu, the joy of Urim, in the western lands from his chariot fell and died.
On the throne of Urim his son Shulgi him succeeded; full of vile and eager for battles Shulgi
In Nibru-ki himself high priest he anointed, in Unug-ki the joys of Inanna's vulva he sought;
Warriors from the mountainlands, to Nannar not beholden, in his army he enlisted,
With their help the western lands he overran, the sanctity of Mission Control Center he ignored.
In the sacred Fourth Region his foot he set, King of the Four Regions himself he declared.
About the defilements Enlil was angered, about the invadings Enki to Enlil spoke:
The rulers of your region all bounds have exceeded! Enki to Enlil bitterly said.
Of all the troubles Marduk is the fountainhead! Enlil to Enki retorted.
Still the dream-vision to himself keeping, Enlil to Tirhu his attention turned.
Upon lbru-Um, the eldest son of Tirhu, Enlil cast the choosing gaze.
A princely offspring, valiant and with priestly secrets acquainted Ibruum was;
To protect the sacred places, the chariots' ascents and descents enable, Enlil lbruum to go
No sooner did lbruum from Harran depart than in that city Marduk arrived;
The defilements he too had observed, as birth pangs of a New Order he them deemed.
From Harran, on the threshold of Shumer, his final thrust he planned,
From Harran, at the edge of Ishkur's domains situated, the raising of armies he directed.
When twenty-and-four Earth years of his sojourn in Harran had passed,
Marduk to the other gods, of whomever descended, tearfully an appeal made;
Confessing his transgressions but insisting on his lordship, to them he thus said:
Oh gods of Harran, oh great gods who judge, learn my secrets!
As I girdle my belt, my memories I remember:
I am the divine Marduk, a great god, in my domains as Ra am I known.
For my sins to exile I went, to the mountains have I gone, in many lands I wandered,
From where the sun rises to where the sun sets I went, to the land of Ishkur I came.
