Conclusion These are the regulations which Hammurabi the able king has established so that the world may enjoy stable and just government. I, Hammurabi, have been called by the great deities. I am the shepherd who brings well-being and abundant prosperity; my rule is just. So that the strong might not oppress the weak, and that even the orphan and the widow might be treated with justice, I inscribed my precious words on my stele called "King of Justice" in Babylon.
