"Secret tablet of Heaven, exclusive knowledge of the great gods, not for distribution! He may teach it to the son he loves.
To teach it to a scribe from Babylon or a scribe from Borsippa or any other scholar is an abomination to Nabu and Nisaba.
...a Babylonian or a Borsippan or any other scholar.......whoever speaks...
[Nabu and] Nisaba will not confirm him as a teacher. In poverty and deficiency
may they put an end to his ......; may they kill [him] with dropsy."
