- He who confirms or contradicts what is uttered, who enters Nance's house from outside, and does not leave it, the caretaker of Nance's house, the child born to Utu, lord Hendursaja.

- He who extends his staff of office, the one respected within the abzu, the lord who has no opposition in the terraced tower of Nance's house, the king, lord Hendursaja, promulgates the decrees of Nance's house. They are heavy smoke settling on the ground; the commands of the house are thick clouds covering the sky as if they were joined together with the needle of matrimony, yet the king, lord Hendursaja, tears them apart. He can discriminate between the just and the wicked, and he can bring justice to the orphan as well as to the widow.
- [T]he king who loves justice, Hendursaja.
- [T]he child speaks to the mother who bore him in the great city with black looks and in anger, then the king who hates violence, Hendursaja, will treat such a person like water in a filthy place, and will reject that child for her sake as grain is rejected by acid soil.
