My numerous troops moved about undisturbed in the midst of Babylon. I did not allow anyone to terrorize the land of Sumer and Akkad. I kept in view the needs of Babylon and all its sanctuaries to promote their well-being. The citizens of Babylon�. I lifted their unbecoming yoke. Their dilapidated dwellings I restored. I put an end to their misfortunes.�
