      I don't have it off hand, but I'm sure you can find it in the Porten-Yardeni
      corpus of Elephantine texts, one volume of which contains literary texts.
      Also, I seem to remember that Jonas Greenfield published an edition.

      Do you have a reference for the Aramaic version at Elephantine?

      Just curious, as Aramaic is one of the languages I've studied to some
      extent.
