O mighty Keš (Kish), form of heaven and earth, arousing terror like a great horned viper,
house of Ninursaĝa (Ninhursag), built in a terrifying place!
Respected Keš, your interior is a deep interior while your exterior is tall.
Great lion …… on the high plain and roving about on the plain,
great hill established by incantations, twilit interior in which moonlight does not shine,
Nintur (Ninhursag, King Anu’s daughter) has made you beautiful —
O house Keš, your brickwork and your molding of it!
Your terrace! Your exterior, a lustrous su crown, and your building of it!
Your princess, the silencing princess, the true and great lady of heaven —
when she talks heaven trembles, when she opens her mouth a storm thunders —
Aruru (Ninhursag), the (½) sister of Enlil, has erected a house in your precinct,
O house Keš, and taken her seat upon your dais.
