They placed in my hands their (i 50) mighty weapons, deluge in battle. I gained control over lands, mountains, towns, and princes who were hostile to Aššur and I subdued their districts. (i 55) I vied with 60 crowned heads and achieved victory over them in battle. I have neither rival in strife nor equal in conflict. I added territory to Assyria (and) people to its population. I extended the border of my land and ruled over all their lands.

With the support of the god Aššur, my lord, I put my chariotry and army in readiness (and), not waiting for my rear guard, I traversed the rough terrain of Mount Kašiiari. I fought with their 20,000 men-at-arms (i 75) and five kings in the land Katmuḫu. I brought about their defeat. Like a storm demon I piled up the corpses of their warriors on the battlefield (and) made their blood flow into the hollows (i 80) and plains of the mountains. I cut off their heads (and) stacked them like grain piles around their cities. I brought out their booty, property, (and) possessions without number. I took (i 85) the remaining 6,000 of their troops who had fled from my weapons (and) submitted to me and regarded them as people of my land.

(i 89) At that time I marched to the insubmissive land Katmuḫu which had withheld tribute and impost from the god Aššur, my lord. I conquered the entire land of Katmuḫu. I brought out their booty, property, (and) possessions. Their cities (ii 1) I burnt, razed, (and) destroyed. The remainder of the (inhabitants of the) land Katmuḫu, who had fled from my weapons (and) (ii 5) crossed over to the city Šereššu which is on the opposite bank of the Tigris, made that city their stronghold. Taking my chariots and warriors I hacked through the rough mountain range and difficult paths with copper picks and made a good way for the passage of (ii 10) my chariots and troops. I crossed the Tigris (and) conquered their fortified city, Šereššu. I spread out like grain heaps (the corpses of) their men-at-arms in the battle. I made (ii 15) their blood flow in the hollows and plains of the mountains. At that time I laid low like sheep, with the army of (ii 20) the land Katmuḫu, the army of the Papḫû which had come to the aid and assistance of the land Katmuḫu. I built up mounds with the corpses of their men-at-arms on mountain ledges. I allowed the River Nāme to carry the bodies of their warriors out to the Tigris. I captured in battle their king, (ii 25) Kili-Teshub, son of Kali-Teshub, who is called Errupi. I carried off his wives, his natural sons, his clan, 180 (ii 30) copper kettles, five bronze bath-tubs, together with their gods, gold and silver, the best of their property. I brought out their booty. I burnt, razed, (and) destroyed that city and its palace.

As soon as with my valor, by means of which the god Aššur, my lord, had placed in my hand the strong weapon which subdues the insubmissive, (ii 100) he commanded me to extend the border of his land, 4,000 Kasku (and) Urumu, insubmissive troops of Ḫatti who had seized by force (iii 1) the cities of the land Šubartu which were vassals of the god Aššur, my lord heard of my coming to the land Šubartu. The splendor of my valor overwhelmed them and, fearing battle, they submitted to me. I took them, together with their property and 120 chariots (and) harnessed horses, and regarded them as people of my land.

(iii 7) With my valorous onslaught I marched a second time to the land Katmuḫu. I conquered all their cities (and) (iii 10) carried off their booty, possessions, (and) property without number. I burnt, razed, (and) destroyed their cities. The remainder of their troops, which had taken fright at my fierce weapons and (iii 15) had been cowered by my strong and belligerent attack, took to secure heights in rough mountainous terrain in order to save their lives. I climbed up after them to the peaks of high mountains and perilous mountain ledges (iii 20) where a man could not walk. They waged war, combat, and battle with me (and) I brought about their defeat. (iii 25) Like a storm demon I piled up the corpses of their warriors on mountain ledges (and) made their blood flow into the hollows and plains of the mountains. I brought down their booty, possessions, (and) property from the heights of the mighty mountains. (Thus) I became lord of the entire land of Katmuḫu and added (it) to the borders of my land.

(iii 35) With the exalted strength of the god Aššur, my lord, the god Aššur, (my) lord, (iii 40) commanded me to march to the land Ḫaria and the army of the extensive Papḫû in high mountains where no other king had ever gone. Putting my chariotry and army in readiness I took a rugged route between Mount Etnu and Mount Aia. In the high mountains, which thrust up like pointed daggers and which (iii 45) were impassable for my chariots, I put the chariots on (the soldiers') necks (and thereby) passed through the difficult mountain range. All of the Papḫû, their extensive army, joined together and aggressively (iii 50) they took up a position to wage war, combat, and battle in Mount Azu. I fought with them in rough mountainous terrain (and) brought about their defeat. I built up mounds with the bodies of their warriors in the plains of the mountain (and) made (iii 55) the blood of their warriors flow into the hollows and plains of the mountain. I stormed the cities which were on mountain ledges (and) conquered 25 cities of the land Ḫaria which lies at the foot of Mounts Aia, Šuira, Etnu, (iii 60) Šezzu, Šelgu, Arzanibiu, Urusu, and Anitku. I carried off their booty, possessions, (and) property. I burnt, razed, (and) destroyed their cities.

I pushed through rugged paths and perilous passes, the interior of which (iv 55) no king had previously known, blocked trails (and) unopened remote regions. Mounts Elama, Amadānu, Elḫiš, Šerabeli, Tarḫuna, (iv 60) Terkaḫuli, Kiṣra, Tarḫanabe, Elula, Ḫaštarae, Šaḫišara, Ubera, Miliadruni, Šulianzi, Nubanāše, (iv 65) and Šēše, 16 mighty mountains (I rode) my chariot over smooth terrain and I hacked out the rough terrain with copper picks.

With the onslaught of my fierce weapons I approached them (and) destroyed their extensive army (iv 90) like a storm of the god Adad. I laid out like grain heaps the corpses of their warriors in the open country, the plains of the mountains, and the environs of their cities. I seized (iv 95) in battle 120 of their chariots with equipment (and) 60 kings of the lands Nairi, including those who had come to their aid, (iv 100) I chased at arrow point as far as the Upper Sea. I conquered their great towns (and) brought out (v 1) their booty, possessions, (and) property. I burnt, razed, (and) destroyed their cities (and) turned them into ruin hills. I brought back (v 5) extensive herds of horses, mules, (and) donkeys the livestock of their pastures without number. I captured all of the kings of the lands Nairi alive. I had mercy (v 10) on those kings and spared their lives. I released them from their bonds and fetters in the presence of the god Šamaš, my lord, and made them swear by my (v 15) great gods an oath of eternal vassaldom. I took their natural, royal, sons as hostages. I imposed upon them a tribute of 1,200 horses (and) 2,000 cattle. I allowed them to return to their lands.

(v 22) I brought Sēni, king of the land Daiēnu, who had not been submissive to the god Aššur, my lord, in bonds and fetters to my city Aššur. I had mercy on him and let him leave my city Aššur alive in order to proclaim the glory of the great gods. (Thus) I became lord of the vast lands of Nairi in their entirety. Indeed all their kings I subdued.

I took their gods (and) (vi 10) brought out their booty, possessions, (and) property. I burnt the city. The three walls which were constructed with baked brick and the entire city I razed, destroyed, turned into a ruin hill and (vi 15) strewed ṣīpu-stones over it. I made bronze lightning bolts (and) inscribed on them (a description of) the conquest of the lands which with the god Aššur, my lord, I conquered (and a warning) not to occupy that city and not to rebuild its wall. On that (site) I built a house of baked brick and put inside those bronze lightning bolts.

I took rare orchard fruit which is not found in my land (and therewith) filled the orchards of Assyria.
