SAACT 7 presents a new edition of Ludlul Bel Nemeqi, “the Babylonian poem of the righteous sufferer.” This edition, based on all known tablets of the poem, offers the most complete text of Ludlul to date. Building on a half century of research and discovery, the editors incorporate previously unknown lines of the poem and establish the proper ordering of the material in Tablet IV. The edition includes an extensive introduction, the reconstructed text in cuneiform and transliteration, a translation, and a glossary and sign list. Assyriologists and biblical scholars alike will welcome this long overdue edition of “the Babylonian Job.”

"Ultimately, this volume is a sine qua non for various fields and subfields of ancient Near Eastern studies. That is, Assyriologists will find this volume to be a very useful contribution, but the audience for this volume certainly includes those who work in fields such as Northwest Semitic, Hebrew Bible, Egyptology, Hittite, literary criticism, and the history of religions. No library should be without it."—Christopher Rollston, Emmanuel School of Religion in Review of Biblical Literature, July 2011

"...Annus and Lenzi are to be thanked for a significant contribution to the reconstruction, study, and understanding of a major Akkadian literary work and a welcome addition to the growing SAACT series. It will prove valuable to both scholars and students."—Victor Avigdor Hurowitz, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Journal of Hebrew Scriptures, Volume 11 (2011).
