Oh pure plants grown in a pure place, sprouting from the water of the Abzu! O soapwort, pure plant, who’s roots grew in pure earth and branches touched holy sky! O tamarisk, pure plant, who’s roots grew in pure earth and branches touched holy sky! Enki, Lord of the Abzu, will now purify  and cleanse this in perpetration for holy ritual! Damgalnunna, Queen of the Abzu , will now purify  and cleanse this in perpetration for holy ritual! May evil speech stand aside!
