On the Moon and on the storm i ride
And I came and found the earth as encircled and the sky as sealed
He the man of mischief was in the palace, in all its four corners
The earth quaked and the sky trembled before the man, that within it's borders and on its base stood.
I called out to him, mischief, in the name of Mah-Adur-Gusnaspu son of Mama.
It stands so that earth rotates and turns itself but not so the sky, which he tears open and he rips asunder.
For this reason I hung the mischievous man with the skull curls on and bound him with the words of his tongue.
The magical practices of Nanaya of Borsippa and the words of the sages of Babylon had began to destroy the beauty of Earth
In seol I grabbed him and tied him with my hands, put him on a mountain and asked of him to the small boy, who he grabs and to the little girls he torments.
Those grabbed me saying let him not go and threw him down.
The Aramaic text
Bound is Istarte of the new town (territory), the Istarte who sits on the bank of the Euphrates and calls herself Mulit. Bound are the sixty-six Ilahas. Bound is the phalanx of Nanay, she and her seven sisters who dwell on the river Harin Bound (and shackled) is Nanay of Borṣip and shackled is Nanay of Bīt Guzayye which is in Gahzay
The earliest Mandaic texts also know Nabû as the god of Borsippa . In one Mandaic incantation, a reference is made to Nanaya as a magical medium beside the “wise men of Babylon”. On a magic bowl, Nanaya is called “mistress of the world.”
Nanaya on the Demonic hit-list
Some texts mention a group of goddesses collectively named the "Ladies" Nanaya, Beltu-§a-Re§, Usur-amassu, and Urkayltu. They formed with Istar a pentad which stood at the center of the religious life of Uruk, it is probable that each of these goddesses was to some degree viewed as a manifestation of Istar.
The importance of Nanaya in the pantheon of Uruk derived from her position as daughter of An, and also as daughter of Inanna, with whom she became syncretized at a very early date. A hymn with prayer for king Isbi-Erra portrays the goddess as a creature of Inanna, endowed with the same attributes, and to whom Inanna has delegated her powers:
In her role as goddess of love, the quality which is most consistently ascribed to Nanaya is expressed by the Sumerian word bi-li, "charm, luxuriance, voluptuousness, sensuality.
Lady of the princely powers, emerging brilliantly like the daylight, chosen forever for her virtuous beauty! Nanaya, ornament of E-ana, worthy of the Lady! Wise one, correctly chosen as lady of all the lands by the Mistress: Nanaya, you instruct the Land, bestowing wisdom in E-ana
Nanaya, properly educated by holy Inana, woman who is as bright as the stars, wise lady who is available for everything, righteous sympathetic woman, lady who is always available on request,counseled by holy Inana, beloved by the Mistress!
Nanaya, great judge, deity who occupies the high throne of Uruk!
Lady of Hearing and of Favor. She was rarely invoked apart from her husband, Nabu, whose name means “speaking.” Thus, while Nabu speaks, Nanaya listens.
Nanaya, by the command of An you are the queen of all the countries.
In the shrine, in Kulaba he declares it,and the people turn their hearts towards you as you address them. Nanaya, good woman, you are the favorable name of the black-headed!
You, John, baptize me with your baptism
In the name that you pronounce, pronounce upon me.
If I become a disciple,
I will mention myself in my written decree.
If I do not become a disciple,
Erase my name from your scroll.
You will be held responsible for your sin
And I will be held responsible for my sin.”
When Jesus Christ said these things,
A letter came to John from the House of Abatur:
“Baptize the deceiver in the Jordan.
Bring him down into the Jordan.
Baptize him, do not be grieved.”
He brought him back up to the shore.
Spirit took the form of a dove.
She made a cross in the Jordan
and she lifted up the waters in colors,
and said to the Jordan,
“You defile me and you defile my seven sons.”
The Jordan in which Christ the deceiver is praised
is turned into a gutter.
The communion bread which Christ the deceiver takes
is made infernal.
The communion wine which Christ the deceiver takes
is turned into a sacrifice.
The turban which Christ the deceiver takes
is made into Jewish priesthood.
The staff which Christ the deceiver takes
is made sickly.
A woman who from her youth was a widow
grasped the shirt (of a man) and married the world,
which they nurtured, a son as he went yonder.
Her face will not be destroyed by her husband.
A prostitute who becomes a lady
goes up to town and goes down from town
and the crown is not removed from her face.
