Hear me, Ea Nusku Asri-lú-duden-ki Gira Šamaš Ištar-šu Marduk

O Asari, bestower of planting, founder of sowing,

Creator of grain and plants, who caused the green herb to spring up!

O Asaru-alim, who is revered in the house of counsel, who abounds in counsel,

The gods paid homage, fear took hold upon them!

O Asaru-alim-nuna, the mighty one, the light of the father who begat him,

Who directs the decrees of An, Ninurta, and Enki!

He was their patron, he ordained their offices;

He, whose provision is abundance, goes forth!

Tutu is he who created them anew;

I am your prophet to whom you have transmitted your mysteries; the whole quintessence of sorcery!

O Ki, Ki, yes Ki!

Giš-gim-maš master of your curses, to whom Zi-ud-su-ra revealed his wisdom;

What you have ensourced, I know it!

What I have ensourced; you do not know it!

Hear me, for I am the messenger of King Bil-ga-maš,

which is your true name, handed down to the en of Uruunug.

Hear me, Ab-zu Engir Namma An Ki Geshtu-e Aw-ilu Weila

Hear me, Nin-din-ug-ga Nin-a-ha-qud-du Mulkak-si-šá Gibil Sȋn

I am headless Weila, with sight in my feet;

I am Gibil, the mighty one who possesses primeval fire;

I am Utu, who hates the fact that unjust deeds are done in the world;

I am Ninurta, who holds the mighty thunderbolt;

I am Enlil, who’s sweat falls upon the earth as rain so that life can begin;

I am Enki, who’s mouth speaks great wisdom;

I am Inanna, who begets and destroys;

I am Dumuzid, the consort of the queen of heaven;

I am Ningizada, the entwining of serpents;

God, King, Master, Prince, empower my soul!

Quickly, quickly, o su-kal of dan!

Come forth and follow.

Face the south and perform the banishing form of Invocation of The Four Winds.
