May it have peace, peace in Amentet. May it look upon its material body, may it rest upon its spiritual body, and may its body neither perish nor suffer corruption forever.
These words are to be said over an amulet of gold inlaid with precious stones and placed on the chest of Osiris. The chapter of not letting the soul of Nu, triumphant, be captive in the underworld.
Hail you who are adored! O you mighty one of Souls, you divine Soul, you possessor of terrible power, who puts fear into the gods, you who are crowned upon the throne of majesty, I pray you to make a way for the ba , and for the khu , and the khaibit shade of the overseer of the palace, the chancellor-in-chief, Nu, triumphant, and let him be provided for therewith.
I am a perfect khu , and I have made my way to the place where dwell Ra and Hathor. If this chapter be known by the deceased he shall be able to transform himself into a khu provided--with his soul and with his shade in the underworld, and he shall never be held captive at any door in Amentet, in entering in or in coming out.
The chapter of opening the tomb of the soul and to the shade of Osiris. The scribe Nebseni, the lord of reverence, born of the lady of the house, Mut-restha, triumphant, so that he may come forth by day and have dominion over his fleet.
That which was open has been shut to my soul through the command of the Eye of Horus, which has strengthened me and which makes to stand fast the beauties which are upon the forehead of Ra, whose strides are long as he lifts up his legs in journeying.
I have made for myself a way, my members are mighty and are strong. I am Horus the avenger of his divine father. I am he who brings along his divine father, and who brings along his mother by means of his sceptre?
The way shall be opened to him who has gained dominion over his feet, and he shall see the Great God in the Boat of Ra, when souls are counted at the bow, and when the years are also counted.
Grant that the eye of Horus, which makes the adornments of light to be firm upon the forehead of Ra, may deliver my soul for me, and let there be darkness upon your faces, O ye who would hold fast Osiris.
Oh, keep not captive my soul, Oh, keep not ward over my shade, but let a way be opened for my soul and for my shade, and let them see the Great God in the shrine on the day of the judgment of souls.
Let them recite the utterances of Osiris whose habitations are hidden, to those who guard the members of Osiris, and who keep ward over the Khus , and who hold captive the shades of the dead who would work evil against me, so that they shall not work evil against me.
May a way for your double Ka , along with you and along with your soul, be prepared by those who keep ward over the members of Osiris, and who hold captive the shades of the dead.
Heaven shall not keep you, the earth shall not hold you captive, you shalt not have your being with the divine beings who make slaughter, but you shall have dominion over your legs, and you shall advance to your body straightway in the earth and to those who belong to the shrine and guard the members of Osiris.
The chapter of being nigh unto Thoth. The chancellor-in-chief, Nu, triumphant, says: I have smitten like the god of slaughter, and I have poured out libations of cool water like the god Ashu.
I have made to flourish my knife along with the knife which is in the hand of Thoth in the powers of rain and thunder. The chapter of being near to Thoth and of giving glory to a man in the underworld.
I have made Suti to be at peace with me by means of offerings made to the god Aker, and to the Tesgeru deities, and by making reverence to Seb.
The following words are to be recited in the Sektet boat: I am the divine father Bah, "god of the water flood", and I do away with the thirst of him that keeps ward over the Lakes.
Behold me, then, O great gods of majesty who dwell among the Souls of Annu, for I am lifted up over you.
I am the god Menkh, "Gracious One", who dwells among you. I have cleansed my soul, O great god of majesty, set not before me the evil obstacles which issue from your mouth.
Let not destruction come round about me, or upon me. I have made myself clean in the "Lake of making to be at peace", and in the "Lake of weighing in the balance", and I have bathed myself in Netert-utchat, which is under the holy sycamore tree of heaven.
Behold, I am bathed, and I have triumphed over all mine enemies straightway who come forth and rise up against right and truth. I am right and true in earth.
I have spoken with my mouth which is the power of the Lord, the Only one, Ra the mighty, who lives upon right and truth. Let not injury be inflicted upon me, but let me be clothed on the day of those who go forward to every good thing.
The chapter of bringing along a boat in heaven. I have stood up over you when you rose like a god. I have seen you, and I have not lain down in death.
I have stood over you, and I have risen like a god. I have cackled like a goose, and I have alighted like a hawk by the divine clouds and by the great dew.
I have journeyed from the earth to heaven. The god Shu made me to stand up, the god of Light has made me to be vigorous by the two sides of the ladder, and the stars which never rest set me on my way and bring me away from slaughter.
I bring along with me the things which drive back calamities as I advance over the passage of the god Pen. You come, how great are you, O god Pen!
Hail, thou god Kaa, who does bring those things which are in the boats. I stand up in the boat and I guide myself over the water. I have stood up in the boat and the god has guided me.
I have stood up. I am master of the crops. I sail round about as I go forward, and the gates which are in Sekhem--Letopolis are opened to me, and fields are awarded to me in the city of Unni--Hermopolis, and laborers are given to me together with those of my own family.
The chapter of protecting the boat of Ra. O Ra, who sits in your boat as you go forth to your station of yesterday. Join the Osiris, the overseer of the palace, the chancellor-in-chief, Nu, triumphant, the perfect Khu , to your boatmen, and let your strength be his strength.
Let him be among your boatmen, and let your strength be his strength. Hail, Ra, in your name of Ra, if you pass by those who are overturned in death, then verily make the Osiris, Nu, triumphant, the perfect soul, to stand up upon his feet, and may your strength be his strength.
Hail, Ra, in thy name of Ra, if the hidden things of the underworld are opened to you and you gratify the heart of your gods, then verily do you grant joy of heart unto the chancellor-in-chief, Nu, triumphant, and let your strength be his strength.
Your members, O Ra, are established by this Chapter. This Chapter shall be recited over a bandlet of the fine linen of kings, upon which it has been written, which shall be laid upon the neck of the perfect Khu on the way of the burial.
If this amulet be laid upon his neck he shall do everything which he desires to do, even like the gods.
He shall join himself to the followers of Horus. He shall be established as a star face to face with Septet-Sothis.
His corruptible body shall be as a god along with his kinsfolk forever. The goddess Menqet shall make plants to germinate upon his body.
And the Majesty of the God Thoth lovingly shall make the light to rest upon his corruptible body at will, even as he did for the majesty of the King of the North and of the South, the god Osiris, triumphant.
The chapter of going into the boat of Ra. I have come forward to your steps, let me be the director of your journeys and let me be among those who belong to you and who are among the stars which never rest.
The things which are an abomination to you and the things which are an abomination to me I will not eat, that which is an abomination to me is filth and I will not eat it.
But sepulchral offerings and holy food will I eat, and I shall not be overthrown. I will not draw near to filth with my hands, and I will not walk on it with my sandals, because my bread is made of white barley, and my ale is made of red barley.
Behold, the Sektet boat and the Atet boat have brought these things and have laid the gifts of the lands upon the altar of the Souls of Annu. Hymns of praise be to you, O Ur-arit-s, as you travel through heaven!
Let there be food for you, O dweller in the city of Teni, and when the dogs gather together let me not suffer harm. I have come, and I have delivered the god from the things which have been inflicted upon him, from the grievous sickness of the body, of the arm, and of the leg.
I have come and I have given life to the body, I have bound up the arm, and I have made the leg to walk. I have entered the boat and I sail round about by the command of Ra.
O Unen-em-hetep, I have entered into you and my soul follows after me, and my divine food is in both my hands. O Lady of the two lands, who established my word whereby I remember and forget.
I would live without injury, without any injury being done to me. Oh, grant to me, oh, do grant to me joy of heart.
Bring me to be at peace, bind up my sinews and muscles, and bring me to receive the air. O Un-em-hetep, Lady of the winds, I have entered into you and I have shown my face.
Ra falls asleep, but I am awake. The goddess Hast is at the gate of heaven by night. Obstacles have been set before me, but I have gathered together what he has emitted.
I am in my city. I am the bull enveloped in turquoise, the lord of the Field of the Bull, the lord of the divine speech of the goddess Septer--Sothis at her hours.
A chapter of knowing the souls of Pe. The overseer of the palace, the chancellor-in-chief, Nu, triumphant, says: Hail, you goddesses who dwell in the city of Pe, you celestial lands, you stars, and you divine beings who give cakes and ale.
Do you know for what reason the city of Pe has been given to Horus? I, even I, know though you know it not.
Behold Ra gave the city to him in return for the injury in his eye. For Ra said to Horus, "Let me see what is coming to pass in your eye," and he looked.
Then Ra said to Horus, "Look at that black pig," and he looked, and straightway an injury was done to his eye, namely, a mighty storm took place.
Then said Horus unto Ra, "Verily, my eye seems as if it were an eye upon which Suti had inflicted a blow", and thus saying he lost his temper and raged.
Then said Ra to those gods, "Place him in his chamber, and he shall do well. Then said Ra to those gods, "The pig is an abominable thing unto Horus.
Oh, but he shall do well although the pig is an abomination to him. Then the company of the gods, who were among the divine followers of Horus when he existed in the form of his own child, said, "Let sacrifice be made to the gods of his bulls, and of his goats, and of his pigs.
Then said Horus to Ra, "Give me two divine brethren in the city of Pe and two divine brethren in the city of Nekhen, who have sprung from my body and who shall be with me in the guise of everlasting judges.
Then shall the earth blossom and thunderclouds and rain be blotted out. The chapter of making the transformation into a swallow.
I am the scorpion, the daughter of Ra. Hail, ye gods, whose scent is sweet. I Hail Flame, which comes forth from the horizon! Hail, you who are in the city, I have brought the Warden of his Bright therein.
Oh, stretch out to me your hand so that I may be able to pass my days in the Pool of Double Fire, and let me advance with my message, for I have come with words to tell.
Oh, open the doors to me and I will declare the things which have been seen by me. Horus has become the divine Prince of the Boat of the Sun, and to him has been given the throne of his divine father Osiris, and Set, that son of Nut, lies under the fetters which he had made for me.
I have made a computation of what is in the city of Sekhem, I have stretched out both my hands and arms at the word of Osiris. I have passed on to judgment, and I have come that I may speak, grant that I may pass on and declare my tidings.
I enter in, I am judged, and I come forth worthy at the gate of Neb-er-tcher. I am pure at the great place of the passage of souls. I have done away with my sins.
I have put away my offences, and I have destroyed the evil which clung to me on earth. Hail, divine beings who guard the doors, make for me a way, for, behold, I am like you.
It was a subordinate part of the human being during life, but after death it became active; and to it the offerings brought to the tomb by the relatives of the dead were dedicated.
It was believed that it returned to the body and had a share in its re-vivification. As the sun sets in the west and rises again in the cast, so the dead man is laid in his tomb on the western bank of the Nile, and after being acquitted in the Hall of judgment, proceeds to the east to begin a new existence.
On this word, see Naville, Litanie du Soleil , p. Tatunen, or Tenen was, like Seb with whom he was identified, the god of the earth; his name is often joined to that of Ptah, and he is then described as the creator of gods and men, and the maker of the egg of the sun and of the moon.
See Lanzone, Dizionario , p. This god was, in one aspect, a destroyer of created things; compare , Naville, op. The darkness personified was Apep, Nak, etc.
The House of the Prince keepeth festival, and the sound of those who rejoice is in the 12 mighty dwelling.
The gods are glad [when] they see Ra in his rising; his beams flood the world with light. May I see Horus in charge of the rudder, with Thoth.
May he grant unto the ka of Osiris Ani to behold the disk of the Sun and to see the Moon-god without ceasing, every day; and may my soul 18 come forth and walk hither and thither and whithersoever it pleaseth.
May my name be proclaimed when it is found upon the board of the table of 22 offerings; may offerings be made unto me in my 24 presence, even as they are made unto the followers of Horus; may there be prepared for me a seat in the boat of the Sun on the day of the going forth of the 26 god; and may I be received into the presence of Osiris in the land 28 of triumph!
