To the king my lord, 2. my gods, my Sun-god, 3. speak 4. thus: (I), Su-yardata 5. thy servant, the dust of thy feet, 6. at the feet of the king my lord, 7. my gods, my Sun-god, 8. seven times seven prostrate myself. 9. The king my lord directed me 10. to make war 11. in the city of Keilah: 12. war was made: 13. a complaint against me 14. is raised. My city 15. against myself 16. rose upon me. 17.

And the king my lord knows 22. that Ebed-tob 23. has taken my city 24. from my hand.

I say: I am a righteous servant 11. of the king, and I have not sinned, 12. and I have not offended, and 13. I do not withhold my tribute, 14. and I do not refuse 15. the request to turn back my liers-in-wait.2 16. Now the food of my stomach 17. they have taken away, and yet I do not 18. complain, more
