About Adad-Guppi

  1. I (am) the lady Adda-guppi’, mother
  2. of Nabium-na’id, king of Babylon,
  3. votaress of the gods Sin, Nin-gal, Nusku, and Sadarnunna, my deities
  4. who, from my childhood, have sought after
  5. their godheads. Whereas in the i6th year of Nabopolassar,
  6. king of Babylon, Sin, king of the gods, with his city
  7. and his temple was angry and went up to heaven-the city and
  8. the people that (were) in it went to ruin.
  9. (Now) forasmuch as the shrines of Sin, Nin-gal, Nusku,
  10. and Sadarnunna I sought after and was worshipper of their godhead,
  11. (and) that I laid hold on the hem of the robe of Sin, king of the gods, night and daytime
  12. I had ever in mind his great godhead@aily, without ceaSing,
  13. of Sin, gamag, Igtar, and Adda, so long as I am alive,
  14. I (am) their votaress (both) in heaven and earth. My blesSings,
  15. the goodly things which they gave me, I (too) by day, night, month, and year, gave (back) to them.
  16. I laid hold on the hem of the robe of Sin, king of the gods, night and daytime
  17. my two eyes were with him, in prayer and humility of face
  18. was I bowed before them (and) thus (I prayed), " May thy return
  19. to thy city be (vouchsafed) to me, that the people, the black-headed,
  20. may worship thy great godhead." For calming
  21. the heart of my god and my goddess, a dress of fine wool, jewels,
  22. silver, gold, a new shift, perfumes, sweet oil,
  23. applied not to my body, (but in) a torn shift
  24. I went clothed, my goings-out were noiseless, I proclaimed
  25. their praises : the glory of my city and of my goddess
  26. was (ever) set in my heart, I kept watch upon them,
  27. anything good of mine I did not omit, but carried it (ever) before them.
  28. From the 2oth year of Assurbanipal, king of Assyria, that I was born (in)
  29. until the 42nd year of Assurbanipal, the 3rd year of Asur-etillu-ili,
  30. his son, the 2 I St year of Nabopolassar, the 43rd year of Nebuchadrezzar,
  31. the 2nd year of Awel-Marduk, the 4th year of Neriglissar,
  32. in 95 years of the god Sin, king of the gods of heaven and earth,
  33. (in) which I sought after the shrines of his great godhead,
  34. (for) my good doings he looked upon me with a smile
  35. he heard my prayers, he granted my saying, the wrath
  36. of his heart calmed. Towards E-hul-hul the temple of Sin
  37. which (is) in Harran, the abode of his heart’s delight, he was reconciled, he had
  38. regard. Sin, king of the gods, looked upon me and
  39. Nabu-na’id (my) only son, the issue of my womb, to the kingship
  40. he called, and the kingship of Sumer and Akkad
  41. from the border of Egypt (on) the upper sea even to the lower sea
  42. all the lands he entrusted hither
  43. to his hands. My two hands I lifted up and to Sin, king of the gods,
  44. reverently with imploration [(I prayed) thus, " Nabu-na’id
  45. (my) son, offspring of my womb, beloved of his mother,]

Col. II.

  1. thou hast called him to the kingship, thou hast pronounced his name,
  2. at the command of thy great godhead may the great gods
  3. go at his two sides, may they make his enemies to fall,
  4. forget not, (but) make good E-hul-hul and the finishing of its foundation (?)
  5. When in my dream, his two hands had been laid on, Sin, king of the gods,
  6. spoke to me thus, " With thee I will put into the hands of Nabu-na’id, thy son, the return of the gods and the habitation of Harran ;
  7. He shall build E-hul-hul, shall perfect its structure, (and) Harran
  8. more than (it was) before he shall perfect and restore it to its place.
  9. The hand of Sin, Nin-gal, Nusku, and Sadarnunna
  10. I. he shall clasp and cause them to enter E-hul-hul ". The word of Sin,
  11. king of the gods, which he spoke to me I honoured, and I myself saw (it fulfilled);
  12. Nabu-na’id, (my) only son, offspring of my womb, the rites
  13. forgotten of Sin, Nin-gal, Nusku, and
  14. Sadarnunna he perfected, E-hul-hul
  15. anew he built and perfected its structure, Harran more
  16. than before he perfected and restored it to its place ; the hand
  17. of Sin, Nin-gal, Nusku, and Sadarnunna from
  18. Suanna his royal city he clasped, and in the midst of Harran
  19. in E-hul-hul the abode of their hearts’ ease with gladness
  20. and rejoicing he let them dwell. What from former times Sin, king of the gods,
  21. had not done and had not granted to anybody (he did) for the love of me
  22. who had ever worshipped his godhead, laid hold on the hem of his robe-Sin, king of the gods,
  23. uplifted my head and set upon me a good name in the land,
  24. long days, years of heart’s ease he multiplied upon me.
  25. From the time of Assurbanipal, king of Assyria, until the 9th year
  26. of Nabu-na’id king of Babylon, the son, offspring of my womb
  27. 104 years of happiness, with the reverence which Sin, king of the gods,
  28. placed in me, he made me flourish, my own self : the sight of my two eyes
  29. is clear, I am excellent in understanding, my hand and both feet are sound,
  30. well-chosen are my words, meat and drink
  31. agree with me, my flesh is goodly, glad is my heart.
  32. My descendants to four generations from me flourishing in themselves
  33. I have seen, I am fulfilled (with) offspring. O Sin, king of the gods, for favour
  34. thou hast looked upon me, thou hast lengthened my days : Nabu-na’id, king of Babylon,
  35. my son, to Sin my lord I have devoted him. So long as he is alive
  36. let him not offend against thee ; the genius of favour, genius of favour which (to be) with me
  37. thou hast appointed and they have caused me to attain offspring, with him (too)
  38. appoint (them), and wickedness and offense against thy great godhead
  39. endure not, (but) let him worship thy great godhead. In the 2I years
  40. of Nabopolassar, king of Babylon, in the 43 years of Nebuchadrezzar,
  41. son of Nabopolassar, and 4 years of Neriglissar, king of Babylon,
  42. (when) they exercised the kingship, for 68 years
  43. with all my heart I reverenced them, I kept watch over them,
  44. Nabu-na’id (my) son, offspring of my womb, before Nebuchadrezzar
  45. son of Nabopolassar and (before) Neriglissar, king of Babylon, I caused him to stand,
  46. daytime and night he kept watch over them
  47. what was pleaSing to them he performed continually,
  48. my name he made (to be) favourite in their sight, (and) like
  49. [a daughter of] their [own] they uplifted my head
