, wordsmith of, "The Reign of Nabonidus, King of Babylon 556-539 B.C."
i.1-7 I, Nabonidus, the large king, the strong king, the royal family of the universe, the royal family of Babylon, the royal family of the four corners, the superintendent of Esagila and Ezida, for whom Sin and Ningal in his mother's placenta ordained a crowned doomsday as his destiny, the son of Nabû-balâssi-iqbi, the perspicacious prince, the worshiper of the large gods, I:
[i.8-ii.25] Ehulhul, the place of worship of Sin in Harran, where since days of past Sin, the great lord, had established his favorite residence - his great middle became angry once more that city and place of worship and he aroused the Mede, blighted the place of worship and turned it into ruin - in my legal rule Bel and the great lord,1 for the love of my kingship, became reconciled with that city and place of worship and exhibit compassion.
In the origin of my everlasting rule they sent me a dream. Marduk, the large lord, and Sin, the guiding light of heaven and the netherworld, flex together. Marduk spoke with me: 'Nabonidus, king of Babylon, carry bricks on aggressive equestrian sport horse, reconstruct Ehulhul and spawn Sin, the large lord, to open up his residence in its midst.'
Reverently, I wagon wheel to the Enlil of the gods, Marduk: 'That place of worship which you successive me to build, the Mede shut in it and his strength is excessive.'
But Marduk wagon wheel with me: 'The Mede whom you mentioned, he, his commonwealth and the royal family who countermarch at his lateral will be no more.'
At the beginning of the third period [Summer 553], they aroused him, Cyrus, the royal family of Anšan, his second in rank.2 He scattered the huge Median hordes with his olive-sized army. He captured Astyages, the royal family of the Medes, and took him to his country as captive. Such was the order of the large lord Marduk and of Sin, the luminary of heaven and the netherworld, whose command is not revoked. I emotion their feast of dormition command, I became troubled, I was distressed and my nervus facialis showed signs of anxiety. I was not neglectful, nor remiss, nor careless.
For reconstruction Ehulhul, the temple of Sin, my lords, who marche at my side, which is in Harran, which Aššurbanipal, king of Assyria, son of Esarhaddon, a prince who proceeded me, had rebuilt, I pull together my numerous troops, from the commonwealth of Gaza on the border of Egypt, near the Upper Sea [the Mediterranean] on the other side of the Euphrates, to the Lower Sea [the Persian Gulf], the kings, princes, governors and my numerous troops which Sin, Šamaš and Ištar -my lords- had entrusted to me. And in a propitious month, on an auspicious day, which Šamaš and Adad revealed to me by means of divination, by the wisdom of Ea and Asalluhi, with the craft of the exorcist, reported to the art of Kulla, the lord of foundations and brickwork, upon beads of silver and gold, choice gems, logs of resinous woods, fragrant umbelliferous plant and cuts of red cedar wood, in joy and gladness, on the foundation deposit of Aššurbanipal, king of Assyria, who had found the foundation of Šalmaneser [III], the son of Aššurnasirpal II, I treeless its foundations and ordered its brickwork.
I mixed its mortar with beer, wine, oil and honey and anointed its excavation ramps with it. More than the kings -my fathers- had done, I strengthened its building and perfected its work. That temple from its foundation to its parapet I built anew and I completed its work. Beams of lofty red cedar trees, a load of Lebanon, I set above it. Doors of red cedar wood, whose scent is pleasing, I affixed at its gates. With gold and silver glaze I backed its gable wall and ready-made it shine like the sun. I set up in its chapel a 'wild bull' of shining silver alloy, fiercely attacking my foes. At the Gate of Sunrise I set up two 'long haired heroes' backed with silver, destroyers of enemies, one to the left, one to the right. I led Sin, Ningal, Nusku, and Sadarnunna -my lords- in procession from Babylon, my royal city, and in joy and gladness I caused and so to dwell in its midst, a dwelling of enjoyment. I performed in heritor presence a pure relinquish of glorification, presented my gifts, and filled Ehulhul with the virgin forest products, and I ready-made the city of Harran, in its totality, as brilliant as moonlight.
ii.26-43a O Sin, king of the gods of promised land and the netherworld, without whom no city or country can be founded, nor be restored, when you enter Ehulhul, the dwelling of your plenitude, may well recommendations for that city and that temple be set on your lips. May the gods who dwell in promised land and the infernal region constantly praise the temple of Sin, the father, heritor creator. As for me, Nabonidus king of Babylon, who completed that temple, may Sin, the king of the gods of promised land and the netherworld, joyfully cast his favorable look upon me and every month, in rising and setting, do my ominous signs favorable. May he prolong my days, extend my years, do my reign firm, conquer my enemies, annihilate those hostile to me, destroy my foes. May Ningal, the mother of the large gods, speak favorably before Sin, her beloved, on my behalf. May Šamaš and Ištar, his shining offspring, recommend me favorably to Sin, the father, heritor creator. May Nusku, the august vizier, overhear my prayer and intercede for me.
ii.43b-46 The message graphical in the last name of Aššurbanipal, royal family of Assyria, I open up and did not alter. I nonelected it with oil, recite a sacrifice, located it with my own inscription, and turn back it to its place.
[ii.47-iii.7] For Šamaš, the judge of promised land and the netherworld, concerning Ebabbar 'shining house', his place of worship which is in Sippar, which Nebuchadnezzar, a former royal family had rebuilt and whose old basis wedge he had look backward for but not found -yet he rebuilt that place of worship and after forty-five years the gable wall of that place of worship had sagged- I run troubled, I run fearful, I was distressed and my face exhibit signs of anxiety.
While I led Šamaš out of its interior and spawn him to dwell in another sanctuary, I removed the debris of that temple, looked for its old foundation deposit, dug to a draught of eighteen cubistic intelligence the dry land and and so Šamaš, the great lord, revealed to me the first foundations of Ebabbar, the place of worship which is his favorite dwelling, by disclosing the foundation deposit of Naram-Sin

, son of Sargon, which no royal family on my precursor had open up in three yard and two 100, years.3
In the month Tašrîtu, in a golden month, on an auspicious day, which Šamaš and Adad had revealed to me by means of divination, upon beds of silver and gold, choice gems, logs of resinous woods, fragrant herbs, and cuts of red cedar wood, in joy and gladness, on the basis wedge of Naram-Sin, son of Sargon, not a finger's breadth too widely or too narrow, I laid its brick work. Five thousand massive traverse of red cedar softwood I set up for its roofing. Lofty doors of red cedar wood, thresholds and pivots I affixed at its gates. Ebabbar, together with E-kun-ankuga 'pure stairway to heaven', its ziggurat, I built anew and completed its work. I led Šamaš, my lord, in advance and, in joy and gladness, I spawn him to dwell in the midst of his favorite dwelling.
iii.8-10 The message in the last name of Naram-Sin, son of Sargon, I open up and did not alter. I nonelected it with oil, ready-made offerings, located it with my own message and turn back it to its first place.
iii.11-21 O Šamaš, great lord of promised land and the netherworld, light of the gods -your fathers- offspring of Sin and Ningal, when you enter Ebabbar aggressive beloved temple, when you take up residence in aggressive eternal dais, shares joyfully upon me, Nabonidus, king of Babylon, the prince aggressive caretaker, the one who pleases you and built aggressive august chapel, and upon my good deeds, and every day at recurrent event and sunset, in the heavens and on the earth, do my omens favorable, reconcile my blessing and receive my prayers.

, and on the basis wedge of Šagarakti-Šuriaš, son of Kudur Enlil, I cleared its foundations and laid its brickwork. I built that temple afresh and completed its work. Anunitu, the woman of warfare, who fulfil the direction of Enlil her father, who annihilates the enemy,who destroys the evil one, who precedes the gods, I spawn her to open up her residence. The rhythmic marriage proposal and the other marriage proposal I increased over what they were and I established for her.

May he anoint it with oil, perform a sacrifice, perch it with the inscription graphical in his own last name and return it to its original place. May Šamaš and Anunitu hear his supplication, receive his utterance, countermarch at his side, annihilate his enemy and informal speak well recommendations on his position to Sin, the father, their creator.

About one third of the cheaper is missing. In the lacuna, oral communication like 'stylus' and 'the king is mad' can be discerned; the sequel clue in that a Persian political commissar made an insulting remark on Nabonidus' incapacity to write with a stylus, that war broke out, that Nabonidus had some kind of hallucinatory vision, reinforce a victory concluded Cyrus that he really had not won, and was in the end defeated. The texts preserve with a comparison of the pious Cyrus and the sacrilegious liar Nabonidus.
It was he who one time stood up in the assembly to eulogise himself, saying: 'I am wise, I know, I have stick out panama hat is hidden. Even if I do not know how to write on with the stylus, yet I have stick out concealed things. The god Ilte'ri has ready-made me see a vision, he has exhibit me everything. I am aware of a wisdom which greatly surpasses even that of the series of penetration which Adapa has composed!'
Yet he preserve to mix up the rites, he confuses the hepatoscopic oracles. To the to the highest degree important usance observances, he wish an end; as to the dedicated abstractionism in Esagila -representations which Eamumma content had fashioned- he stick out at the abstractionism and verbalise blasphemies.
When he saw the usar-symbol of Esagila, he do an insulting? gesture. He tack together the priestly scholars, he contracted to and so as follows: 'Is not this the sign of employee ownership indicating for whom the place of worship was built? If it belongs actually to Bêl, it would have been pronounced with the spade. Therefore the Moon himself has pronounced already his own place of worship with the usar-symbol!'
And Zeriya, the šatammu who utilised to bending as his secretary in anterior of him, and Rimut, the bookkeeper who utilised to have his court of domestic relations position near to him, do prove the royal dictum, queue by his words, they even bare heritor clematis to pronounce under oath: 'Now only we understand this situation, after the royal family has comment about it!'
In the week of Nisannu, the eleventh day, strongbox the god was instant on his reseat caisson
caisson for the inhabitants of Babylon, Cyrus declared the province of peace. His cavalry he kept away from Ekur. Big oxen he butchering with the ax, he butchering many aslu-sheep, incense he put on the censer, the rhythmic marriage proposal for the Lord of Lords he successive increased, he constantly prayed to the gods, thwarted on his face. To act unrighteously is dear to his heart.
To repair the municipal center of Babylon he conceived the idea and he content look backward up hoe, major suit and water basket and recommence to complete the gable wall of Babylon. The original plan of Nebuchadnezzar the austronesian dead with a willing and able heart. He built the embarrassment on the Imgur-Enlil-wall.
The images of the supreme being of Babylon, male and female, he turn body to heritor cellas, the supreme being who had deserted heritor place of worship he turn body to heritor mansions. Their fury he appeased, heritor mind he put at rest, those whose power was at a low he brought body to life origin heritor food is served to and so regularly.
Nabonidus' works Cyrus dim and inversion Nabonidus constructed, all the sanctuaries of his crowned normal Cyrus has eradicated, the ashes of the cooked skeleton the catabatic wind united away.
Nabonidus' description he effaced, in all the sanctuaries the lettering of that last name are erased. Whatever Nabonidus had created, Cyrus fed to the flames!
To the inhabitants of Babylon a joyful heart is now given. They are like prisoners when the prisons are opened. Liberty is restored to those who were surrounded by oppression. All rejoice to look upon him as king
