Raging storms, evil gods are they, ruthless demons, who in heaven's vault were created, are they, workers of evil are they, they lift up the head to evil, every day to evil Destruction to work.
Of these seven the first is the South wind, the second is a dragon, whose mouth is opened that none can measure, the third is a grim leopard, which carries off the young, the fourth is a terrible Shibbu, the fifth is a furious Wolf, who knoweth not to flee, the sixth is a rampant ... which marches against god and king. the seventh is a storm, an evil wind, which takes vengeance.
Seven are they, messengers to King Anu are they,from city to city darkness work they, a hurricane, which mightily hunts in the heavens, are they Thick clouds, that bring darkness in heaven, are they, gusts of wind rising, which cast gloom over the bright day, are they, with the Imhullu the evil wind, forcing their way, are they.
Imhullu the atrocious wind, the tempest, the whirlwind, the hurricane, the wind of four and the wind of seven, the tumid wind, worst of all
ll seven winds were created and released to savage the guts of Tiamat, they towered behind him. Then the tornado Abuba his last great ally, the signal for assault, he lifted up.
He mounted the storm, his terrible chariot, reins hitched to the side, yoked four in hand the appalling team, sharp poisoned teeth, the Killer, the Pitiless, Trampler, Haste, they knew arts of plunder, skills of murder.
Erra among all the gods, among the stars of heaven, the Fox Star Was shining bright and its radiance shone for him. The stars of all the gods were dazzling, the star of Erra is shining bright and its radiant brightness was of warfare, his awe-inspiring brilliance will blaze and all people will perish. among the beasts, the image of their star is the fox,
The star at the shaft of the Wagon, the Fox, Erra, the strong one
O king of all inhabited lands, creator of the world, O Hendursaja , first born of Enlil holder of the sublime scepter , herdsman of the black-headed folk, shepherd of mankind, O Ishum, zealous slaughterer, whose hands are suited tp brandish fierce weapons!
The seven heralds stand at your service, on this very day, as evening approaches, the first of the seven is a fox with a sweeping tail. The second snuffles around like a dog. The third pecks greedily at caterpillars like a raven. The fourth overpowers everything like an enormous carrion-eating eagle. The fifth, although not a wolf, will fall upon a black lamb. The sixth screeches like a hawk, The seventh a shark in the waves. These seven are neither female deities nor male.
You are the accountant of Nindara, king of Niĝin in its spacious location, Nance has placed a mighty symbol in your hand, Hendursaja. The divine mother Nance speaks confidentially with you. She has made the crook and sceptre for its plans flourish in a pure place
You are the accountant of the black-headed. You are the chief constable of the dead people who are brought to the underworld. Chief herald, lord Hendursaja: after Enki had had intercourse with ..., he destined the seven sons that she had borne to him, those seven sons of a crab, for the starvation of heaven; he placed them by at your behest, for the crushing of the people of earth
if someone wants to marry a wife, then Utu asks Hendursaja; he does not communicate his wisdom to the man who wants to marry the wife. If Hendursaja tells him that the man may marry the wife, then not only does that person marry the wife but also she bears children;
She is concerned for the orphan and concerned for the widow. She does not forget the man who helps others, she is a mother for the orphan; Nance, a carer for the widow, who always finds advice for the debt-slave; the lady who gives protection for refugees. She seeks out a place for the weak. She swells his collecting basket for him; she makes his collecting vessel profitable for him. For the righteous maiden who has taken her path, Nance chooses a young man of means. Nance raises a secure house like a roof over the widow who could not remarry
The second snuffles around like a dog.
“’My brother (Enki), what part of you hurts you?’ ‘My throat (zi) hurts me.’ She (Ninhursag) gave birth to Nazi out of it…”

On page 31 of that book, Assurnasirpal II is pointing to a series of symbols. Do you (or Kantzveldt) know what the second symbol from the left is?
