        For the god Nergal, mightiest of the gods, most overpowering of the gods, the supreme,

         perfect, (and) noble sovereign of his brother(s), the one who dwells in (the temple) Ešaḫula, the lord of Sirara, his lord:
       

       Ashurbanipal, great king, mighty king, king of the world, king of Assyria;

         son of Esarhaddon, great king, mighty king, king of the world, king of Assyria,

         king of Babylon, king of the land of Sumer and Akkad;

         grandson of Sennacherib, great king, mighty king, king of the world, king of Assyria —

 

        In order to ensure his good health, he enlarged the courtyard of (the temple) Ešaḫula

         with baked bricks from a (ritually) pure kiln and made its processional way shine like daylight.
