Enuma ilu aviluma
ardu shamash apkallu baru
Nergal ina ramanisu
annu ki-utu-kam ilu

Parak simati
muballit mitte
Nergal allatu mellamu mesaru
la tapallah Annuaki
kettu puluthu qillatu

Erset la tari eimmu
ina ramanisu melammu
baru dinau
allatu Nergal
sar kissati

Nergal allatua
allatu Adapa
ina ramaniusue

    General CommentThe Internets also give the translation:


    When God's human being
    Shamash's slave, wise men, saw
    Nergal in himself
    This Earth-stomped land became God's.

    At a decent throne
    Of life and death
    Nergal comes glowing,
    Not stopping at Senior Gods
    As he was fear's bride.

    In the land with no return
    In it's glory
    The look upon judgement
    Gave birth to Nergal
    The king of underground.

    Nergal was born,
    Adapa suffered,
    of what was in himself
