1 Hearing these words, the sovereign was greatly troubled, and calling my father Teraḥ before him, he exclaimed, is this then thy son who was to have been slain?

2 And what child then did I slay at his birth?

3 Speak now the truth and thou shalt go free; but if thou speakest not the truth, thou shalt die with thy son.

4 And Nimroḏ caused my father to swear concerning the matter.
