(35) At that time the wall of New City, which faces the River (Tigris), which is opposite the tisaru-district, which Puzur-Aššur (III), my forefather, a king who preceded me, had previously built it was two and one half bricks thick and thirty layers of brick high had become dilapidated, and was in ruin, and eroded by flood: I cleared its site down to the foundation pit. I made (it) the thickness of ten bricks (which were made) in my large brick mold. I laid its foundation on solid bedrock. I rebuilt (it) from top to bottom. I faced with limestone, baked brick, and bitumen the sewers which drain off the water. Outwardly, on the side facing the river, I applied a facing of limestone, baked brick, and bitumen and deposited my monumental inscription.

(50) In the future may a later prince, when that wall becomes old and dilapidated or eroded by flood, restore it. May he restore my monumental inscription and my inscribed name to its place. (Then) the god Aššur will listen to his prayers.
