(6) [At that time] Eḫursagkurkurra, the temple of Ašš[ur, my lord], upon which from days of old [the kings], my forefathers, had worked, that [temple] was destroyed by fire. I cleared away (the debris of) [the temple of Ašš]ur, [my lord], entirely (and) removed the dirt down to the bottom of the foundation pit. I laid its foundation in hard limestone [like] the base of a mountain. I built therein the chapel of the divine Judges, my [lords]. I restored it. I greatly enlarged beyond previous extent [Eḫursag]kurkurra, the temple of Aššur, my lord. I rebuilt (it) from top to bottom. I placed therein all the gods of Ekur. I deposited my monumental inscriptions (and) the monumental inscriptions of Aššur-uballiṭ (I), my forefather, I deposited with my monumental inscriptions.
