HYMN TO OSIRIS

"Homage to thee, Osiris, Lord of eternity, King of the Gods, whose names are manifold, whose forms are holy, thou being of hidden form in the temples, whose Ka is holy. Thou art the governor of Tattu (Busiris), and also the mighty one in Sekhem (Letopolis). Thou art the Lord to whom praises are ascribed in the nome of Ati, thou art the Prince of divine food in Anu. Thou art the Lord who is commemorated in Maati, the Hidden Soul, the Lord of Qerrt (Elephantine), the Ruler supreme in White Wall (Memphis). Thou art the Soul of Ra, his own body, and hast thy place of rest in Henensu (Herakleopolis).

Thou art the beneficent one, and art praised in Nart. Thou makest thy soul to be raised up. Thou art the Lord of the Great House in Khemenu (Hermopolis). Thou art the mighty one of victories in Shas-hetep, the Lord of eternity, the Governor of Abydos. The path of his throne is in Ta-tcheser (a part of Abydos). Thy name is established in the mouths of men. Thou art the substance of Two Lands (Egypt). Thou art Tem, the feeder of Kau (Doubles), the Governor of the Companies of the gods. Thou art the beneficent Spirit among the spirits. The god of the Celestial Ocean (Nu) draweth from thee his waters. Thou sendest forth the north wind at eventide, and breath from thy nostrils to the satisfaction of thy heart. Thy heart reneweth its youth, thou producest the.... The stars in the celestial heights are obedient unto thee, and the great doors of the sky open themselves before thee. Thou art he to whom praises are ascribed in the southern heaven, and thanks are given for thee in the northern heaven. The imperishable stars are under thy supervision, and the stars which never set are thy thrones. Offerings appear before thee at the decree of Keb. The Companies of the Gods praise thee, and the gods of the Tuat (Other World) smell the earth in paying homage to thee. The uttermost parts of the earth bow before thee, and the limits of the skies entreat thee with supplications when they see thee. The holy ones are overcome before thee, and all Egypt offereth thanksgiving unto thee when it meeteth Thy Majesty. Thou art a shining Spirit-Body, the governor of Spirit-Bodies; permanent is thy rank, established is thy rule. Thou art the well-doing Sekhem (Power) of the Company of the Gods, gracious is thy face, and beloved by him that seeth it. Thy fear is set in all the lands by reason of thy perfect love, and they cry out to thy name making it the first of names, and all people make offerings to thee. Thou art the lord who art commemorated in heaven and upon earth. Many are the cries which are made to thee at the Uak festival, and with one heart and voice Egypt raiseth cries of joy to thee.

"Thou art the Great Chief, the first among thy brethren, the Prince of the Company of the Gods, the stablisher of Right and Truth throughout the World, the Son who was set on the great throne of his father Keb. Thou art the beloved of thy mother Nut, the mighty one of valour, who overthrew the Sebau-fiend. Thou didst stand up and smite thine enemy, and set thy fear in thine adversary. Thou dost bring the boundaries of the mountains. Thy heart is fixed, thy legs are set firm. Thou art the heir of Keb and of the sovereignty of the Two Lands (Egypt). He (Keb) hath seen his splendours, he hath decreed for him the guidance of the world by thy hand as long as times endure. Thou hast made this earth with thy hand, and the waters, and the winds, and the vegetation, and all the cattle, and all the feathered fowl, and all the fish, and all the creeping things, and all the wild animals therof. The desert is the lawful possession of the son of Nut. The Two Lands (Egypt) are content to crown thee upon the throne of thy father, like Ra.

"Thou rollest up into the horizon, thou hast set light over the darkness, thou sendest forth air from thy plumes, and thou floodest the Two Lands like the Disk at daybreak. Thy crown penetrateth the height of heaven, thou art the companion of the stars, and the guide of every god. Thou art beneficent in decree and speech, the favoured one of the Great Company of the Gods, and the beloved of the Little Company of the Gods.

His sister [Isis] hath protected him, and hath repulsed the fiends, and turned aside calamities (of evil). She uttered the spell with the magical power of her mouth. Her tongue was perfect, and it never halted at a word. Beneficent in command and word was Isis, the woman of magical spells, the advocate of her brother. She sought him untiringly, she wandered round and round about this earth in sorrow, and she alighted not without finding him. She made light with her feathers, she created air with her wings, and she uttered the death wail for her brother. She raised up the inactive members of whose heart was still, she drew from him his essence, she made an heir, she reared the child in loneliness, and the place where he was not known, and he grew in strength and stature, and his hand was mighty in the House of Keb. The Company of the Gods rejoiced, rejoiced, at the coming of Horus, the son of Osiris, whose heart was firm, the triumphant, the son of Isis, the heir of Osiris." A HYMN OF PRAISE TO RA WHEN HE RISETH IN THE EASTERN PART OF HEAVEN:

Behold, the Osiris Ani, the scribe of the holy offerings of all the

gods, saith: Homage to thee, O thou who hast come as Khepera,

Khepera the creator of the gods, Thou art seated on thy throne, thou

risest up in the sky, illumining thy mother [Nut] , thou art seated

on thy throne as the king of the gods. [Thy] mother Nut stretcheth out

her hands, and performeth an act of homage to thee. The domain of Manu

receiveth thee with satisfaction. The goddess Maat embraceth thee at

the two seasons of the day. May Ra give glory, and power, and

thruth-speaking, and the appearance as a living soul so that he may

gaze upon Heru-khuti, to the KA of the Osiris the Scribe Ani, who

speaketh truth before Osiris, and who saith: Hail, O all ye gods of

the House of the Soul, who weigh heaven and earth in a balance, and

who give celestial food [to the dead] . Hail, Tatun, [who art] One,

thou creator of mortals [and] of the Companies of the Gods of the

South and of the North, of the West and of the East, ascribe ye praise

to Ra, the lord of heaven, the KING, Life, Strength, and Health, the

maker of the gods. Give ye thanks unto him in his beneficent form

which is enthroned in the Atett Boat; beings celestial praise thee,

beings terrestial praise thee. Thoth and the goddess Maat mark out thy

course for thee day by day and every day. Thine enemy the Serpent hath

been given over to the fire. The Serpent-fiend Sebau hath fallen

headlong, his forelegs are bound in chains, and his hind legs hath

Ra carried away from him. The Sons of Revolt shall never more rise up.

The House of the Aged One keepeth festival, and the voices of those

who make merry are in the Great Place. The gods rejoice when they

see Ra crowned upon his throne, and when his beams flood the world

with light. The majesty of this holy god setteth out on his journey,

and he goeth onwards until he reacheth the land of Manu; the earth

becometh light at his birth each day; he proceedeth until he

reacheth the place where he was yesterday. O be thou at peace with me.

Let me gaze upon thy beauties. Let me journey above the earth. Let

me smite the Ass. Let me slit asunder the Serpent-fiend Sebau. Let

me destroy Aepep at the moment of his greatest power. Let me behold

the Abtu Fish at his season, and the Ant Fish with the Ant Boat as

it piloteth it in its lake. Let me behold Horus when he is in charge

of the rudder [of the Boat of Ra] , with Thoth and the goddess Maat

on each side of him. Let me lay hold of the tow-rope of the Sektet

Boat, and the rope at the stern of the Matett Boat. Let Ra grant to me

a view of the Disk (the Sun), and a sight of Ah (the Moon) unfailingly

each day. Let my Ba-soul come forth to walk about hither and thither

and whithersoever it pleaseth. Let my name be called out, let it be

found inscribed on the tablet which recordeth the names of those who

are to receive offerings. Let meals from the sepulchral offerings be

given to me in the presence [of Osiris] , as to those who are in the

following of Horus. Let there be prepared for me a seat in the Boat of

the Sun on the day wheron the god saileth. Let me be received in the

presence of Osiris in the Land of Truth-speaking- the Ka of Osiris

Ani.



(From the Papyrus of Nekht, Brit. Mus. No. 10471, Sheet 21)



NEKHT, THE CAPTAIN OF SOLDIERS, THE ROYAL SCRIBE, SINGETH A HYMN

OF PRAISE TO RA, and saith:- Homage to thee, O thou glorious Being,

thou who art dowered [with all sovereignty] . O Tem-Heru-Khuti

(Tem-Harmakhis), when thou risest in the horizon of heaven a cry of

joy goeth forth to thee from all people. O thou beautiful Being,

thou dost renew thyself in thy season in the form of the Disk,

within thy mother Hathor. Therefore in every place every heart

swelleth with joy at thy rising for ever. The regions of the South and

the North come to thee with homage, and send forth acclamations at thy

rising on the horizon of heaven, and thou illuminest the Two Lands

with rays of turquoise- [coloured] light. O Ra, who art Heru-Khuti, the

divine man-child, the heir of eternity, self-begotten and self-born,

king of the earth, prince of the Tuat (the Other World), governor of

Aukert, thou didst come from the Water-god, thou didst spring from the

Sky-god Nu, who doth cherish thee and order thy members. O thou god of

life, thou lord of love, all men live when thou shinest; thou art

crowned king of the gods. The goddess Nut embraceth thee, and the

goddess Mut enfoldeth thee at all seasons. Those who are in thy

following sing unto thee with joy, and they bow down their foreheads

to the earth when they meet thee, the lord of heaven, the lord of

the earth, the King of Truth, the lord of eternity, the prince of

everlastingness, thou sovereign of all the gods, thou god of life,

thou creator of eternity, thou maker of heaven wherin thou art

firmly stablished.

The Company of the Gods rejoice at thy rising, the earth is glad

when it beholdeth thy rays; the people who have been long dead come

forth with cries of joy to behold thy beauties every day. Thou goest

forth each day over heaven and earth, and thou art made strong each

day be thy mother Nut. Thou passest over the heights of heaven, thy

heart swelleth with joy; and the Lake of Testes (the Great Oasis) is

content thereat. The Serpent-fiend hath fallen, his arms are hewn off,

the Knife hath severed his joints. Ra liveth by Maat (Law), the

beautiful! The Sektet Boat advanceth and cometh into port. The South

and the North, and the West and East, turn to praise thee. O thou

First, Great God (PAUTA), who didst come into being of thine own

accord, Isis and Nephthys salute thee, they sing unto thee songs of

joy at thy rising in the boat, they stretch out their hands unto thee.

The Souls of the East follow thee, and the Souls of the West praise

thee. Thou art the Ruler of all the gods. Thou in thy shrine hast joy,

for the Serpent-fiend Nak hath been judged by the fire, and thy

heart shall rejoice for ever. Thy mother Nut is esteemed by thy father

Nu.



HYMN TO OSIRIS UN-NEFER



A Hymn of Praise to Osiris Un-Nefer, the great god who dwelleth in

Abtu, the king of eternity, the lord of everlastingness, who

traverseth millions of years in his existence. Thou art the eldest son

of the womb of Nut. Thou was begotten by Keb, the Erpat. Thou art

the lord of the Urrt Crown. Thou art he whose White Crown is lofty.

Thou art the King (Ati) of gods [and] men. Thou hast gained possession

of the sceptre of rule, and the whip, and the rank and dignity of

thy divine fathers. Thy heart is expanded with joy, O thou who art

in the kingdom of the dead. Thy son Horus is firmly placed on thy

throne. Thou hast ascended thy throne as the Lord of Tetu, and as

the Heq who dwelleth in Abydos. Thou makest the Two Lands to

flourish through Truth-speaking, in the presence of him who is the

Lord to the Uttermost Limit. Thou drawest on that which hath not yet

come into being in thy name of "Ta-her-sta-nef." Thou governest the

Two Lands by Maat in thy name of "Seker." Thy power is wide-spread,

thou art he of whom the fear is great in thy name of "Usar" (or

"Asar"). Thy existence endureth for an infinite number of double henti

periods in thy name of "Un-Nefer."

Homage to thee, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, and Prince of

Princes. Thou hast ruled the Two Lands from the womb of the goddess

Nut. Thou hast governed the Lands of Akert. Thy members are of

silver-gold, thy head is of lapis-lazuli, and the crown of thy head is

of turquoise. Thou art An of millions of years. Thy body is all

pervading, O Beautiful Face in Ta-tchesert. Grant thou to me glory

in heaven, and power upon earth, and truth-speaking in the Divine

Underworld, and [the power to] sail down the river to Tetu in the form

of a living Ba-soul, and [the power to] sail up the river to Abydos in

the form of a Benu bird, and [the power to] pass in through and to

pass out from, without obstruction, the doors of the lords of the

Tuat. Let there be given unto me bread-cakes in the House of

Refreshing, and sepulchral offerings of cakes and ale, and

propitiatory offerings in Anu, and a permanent homestead in

Sekhet-Aaru, with wheat and barley therein- to the Double of the

Osiris, the scribe Ani.HERE BEGIN THE CHAPTERS OF COMING FORTH BY DAY, AND THE SONGS OF

PRAISING AND GLORIFYING WHICH ARE TO BE RECITED FOR "COMING FORTH" AND

FOR ENTERING INTO KHERT-NETER, AND THE SPELLS WHICH ARE TO BE SAID

IN BEAUTIFUL AMENTET. THEY SHALL BE RECITED ON THE DAY OF THE FUNERAL,

ENTERING IN AFTER COMING FORTH.



The Osiris Ani, the Osiris the scribe Ani saith:- Homage to thee,

O Bull of Amentet, Thoth the king of eternity is with me. I am the

great god by the side of the divine boat, I have fought for thee, I am

one of those gods, those divine chiefs, who proved the

truth-speaking of Osiris before his enemies on the day of the weighing

of words. I am thy kinsman Osiris. I am [one of] those gods who were

the children of the goddess Nut, who hacked in pieces the enemies of

Osiris, and who bound in fetters the legion of Sebau devils on his

behalf. I am thy kinsman Horus, I have fought on thy behalf, I have

come to thee for thy name's sake. I am Thoth who proved the truth of

the words of Osiris before his enemies on the day of the weighing of

words in the great House of the Prince, who dwelleth in Anu. I am

Teti, the son of Teti. My mother conceived me in Tetu, and gave

birth to me in Tetu. I am with the mourners [and with] the women who

tear out their hair and make lament for Osiris in Taui-Rekhti, proving

true the words of Osiris before his enemies. Ra commanded Thoth to

prove true the words of Osiris before his enemies; what was

commanded [for Osiris] , let that be done for me by Thoth. I am with

Horus on the day of dressing Teshtesh. I open the hidden water-springs

for the ablutions of Urt-ab. I unbolt the door of the Shetait Shrine

in Ra-stau. I am with Horus as the protector of the left shoulder of

Osiris, the dweller in Sekhem. I enter in among and I come forth

from the Flame-gods on the day of the destruction of the Sebau

fiends in Sekhem. I am with Horus on the day [s] of the festivals of

Osiris, at the making of offerings and oblations, namely, on the

festival which is celebrated on the sixth day of the month, and on the

day of the Tenat festival in Anu. I am the UAB priest (libationer)

in Tetu, Rera, the dweller in Per-Asar. I exalt him that is upon the

high place of the country. I look upon the hidden things (the

mysteries) in Ra-stau. I recite the words of the liturgy of the

festival of the Soul-god in Tetu. I am the SEM priest, and [perform]

his duties. I am the UR-KHERP-HEM priest on the day of placing the

Henu Boat of Seker upon its divine sledge. I have taken in my hand the

digging tool on the day of digging up the earth in Hensu.

Hail, O ye who make perfect souls to enter into the House of Osiris,

make ye the well-instructed soul of the Osiris the scribe Ani, whose

word is true, to enter in and to be with you in the House of Osiris.

Let him hear even as ye hear; let him have sight even as ye have

sight; let him stand up even as ye stand up; let him take his seat

even as ye take your seats.

Hail, O ye who give cakes and ale to perfect souls in the House of

Osiris, give ye cakes and ale twice each day (in the morning and in

the evening) to the soul of the Osiris Ani, whose word is true

before the gods, the Lords of Abydos, and whose word is true with you.

Hail, O ye who open up the way, who act as guides to the roads [in

the Other World] to perfect souls in the House of Osiris, open ye up

for him the way, and act ye as guides to the roads to the soul of

the Osiris, the scribe, the registrary of all the offerings made to

the gods, Ani, [whose word is true] with you. May he enter the House

of Osiris with boldness, and may he come forth therefrom in peace. May

there be no opposition made to him, and may he not be sent back

[therefrom] . May he enter in under favour [of Osiris] , and may he come

forth gratified [at the acceptance of] his true words. May his

commands be performed in the House of Osiris, may his words travel

with you, may he be glorious as ye are. May he be not found to be

light in the Balance, may the Balance dispose of his case.





(In the Turin Papyrus, ed. Lepsius, this Chapter ends with the

following.)



Permit thou not me to be judged according to the mouths of the

multitude. May my soul lift itself up before [Osiris] , having been

found to have been pure when on earth. May I come into thy presence, O

Lord of the gods; may I arrive at the Nome of Maati (Truth); may I

rise up on my seat like a god endowed with life; may I give forth

light like the Company of the Gods who dwell in heaven; may I become

like one of you; may I lift up my footsteps in the town of Kher-Aha;

may I look upon the Sektet Boat of the god, Saah, the holy one, as

it passeth across the sky; may I not be repulsed; may I look upon

the Lords of the Tuat, or, according to another reading, the Company

of the Gods; may I smell the savour of the divine food of the

Company of the Gods; may I sit down with them; may my name be

proclaimed for offerings by the KHER-HEB priest at the sacrificial

table; may I hear the petitions which are made when offerings are

presented; may I draw nigh unto the Neshem Boat; and may neither my

Heart-soul nor its lord be repulsed.

Homage to thee, O Chief of Amentet, thou god Osiris, who dwellest in

the town of Nifu-ur. Grant thou that I may arrive in peace in Amentet.

May the Lords of Ta-Tchesert receive me, and may they say unto me:

"Hail, hail; welcome, welcome!" May they make ready for me a seat by

the side of the President of the Chiefs; may the Nursing-goddesses

receive me at the seasons, and may I come forth into the presence of

Un-Nefer true of word. May I be a Follower of Horus in Ra-stau, and of

Osiris in Tetu; and may I perform all the transformations which my

heart may desire to make in every place wherein my Double (KA) wisheth

to be.



RUBRIC: If this text be known [by the deceased] upon earth or if

he causeth it to be done in writing upon [his] coffin, then will he be

able to come forth on any day he pleaseth, and to enter into his

habitation unrepulsed. Cakes and ale and joints of meat from those

which are on the altar of Ra shall be given unto him, and his

homestead shall be among the fields of the Field of Reeds

(Sekhet-Aaru), and wheat and barley shall be given unto him therein,

and he shall flourish there even as he flourished upon earth.THE CHAPTER OF MAKING THE SAHU TO ENTER THE TUAT ON THE DAY OF THE

FUNERAL, WHEN THE FOLLOWING WORDS ARE TO BE SAID: Homage to thee, O

thou who dwellest in the Holy Hill (Set-Tchesert) of Amentet! the

Osiris, the royal scribe, Nekhtu-Amen, whose word is true, knoweth

thee, he knoweth thy name. Deliver thou him from the worms which are

in Ra-stau, which live upon the bodies of men and women, and feed upon

their blood, for Osiris, the favoured servant of the god of his

city, the royal scribe Nekhtu-Amen, knoweth you, and he knoweth your

names. Let the order for his protection be the first command of

Osiris, the Lord to the Uttermost Limit, who keepeth his body

hidden. May he give him release from the Terrible One who dwelleth

at the bend of the River of Amentet, and may he decree the acts that

will make him to rise up. Let him pass on to him whose throne is

placed within the darkness, who giveth light in Ra-stau. O thou Lord

of Light, come thou and swallow up the worms which are in Amentet. Let

the Great God who dwelleth in Tetu, and who is himself unseen, hear

his prayers, and let those who cause afflictions hold him in fear as

he cometh forth with the sentence of their doom to the Divine Block. I

the Osiris, the royal scribe, Nekhtu-Amen, come, bearing the decree of

Neb-er-tcher, and I am the Horus who taketh possession of his throne

for him. His father, the lord of all those who are in the Boat of

his Father Horus, hath ascribed praise unto him. He cometh bearing

tidings....... let him see the town of Anu. Their chief shall stand on

the earth before him, the scribes shall magnify him at the doors of

their assemblies, and thy shall swathe im with swathings in Anu. He

hath led heaven captive, and he hath seized the earth in his grasp.

Neither the heavens nor the earth can be taken away from him, for,

behold, he is Ra, the firstborn of the gods. His mother shall nurse

him, and shall give him her breast on the horizon.



RUBRIC: The words of this Chapter shall be said after [the deceased]

is laid to rest in Amentet; by means of them the region Tenn-t shall

be contented with her lord. And the Osiris, the royal scribe,

Nekhtu-Amen, whose word is truth, shall come forth, and he shall

embark in the Boat of Ra, and [his] body upon its bier shall be

counted up, and he shall be established in the Tuat.



THE CHAPTER OF GIVING A MOUTH TO THE OSIRIS ANI, THE SCRIBE, AND

TELLER OF THE OFFERINGS WHICH ARE MADE TO ALL THE GODS, WHOSE WORD

IS TRUE, WHO SAITH:- I rise up out of the Egg in the Hidden Land.

May my mouth be given unto me that I may speak therewith in the

presence of the Great God, the Lord of the Tuat. Let not my hand and

my arm be repulsed in the presence of the Chiefs (Tchatchau) of any

god. I am Osiris, the Lord of Ra-stau. May I, the Osiris, the scribe

Ani, whose word is true, have my portion with him who is on the top of

the Steps (Osiris). According to the desire of my heart I have come

forth from the Island of Nesersert, and I have extinguished the fire.

[The following passage is taken from the Saite Recension]



[THE CHAPTER OF GIVING A MOUTH TO THE OSIRIS, THE SCRIBE ANI, WHO

SAITH] :- Homage to thee, O thou lord of brightness, Governor of the

Temple, Prince of the night and of the thick darkness. I have come

unto thee. I am shining, I am pure. My hands are about thee, thou hast

thy lot with thy ancestors. Give thou unto me my mouth that I may

speak with it. I guide my heart at its season of flame and of night.



RUBRIC: If this Chapter be known by the Osiris the scribe Ani,

upon earth, [or if it be done] in writing upon [his] coffin, he

shall come forth by day in every form which he pleaseth, and he

shall enter into [his] abode, and shall not be repulsed. And cakes,

and ale, and joints of meat [from those which are on] the altar of

Osiris shall be given unto him; and he shall enter in peace into

Sekhet-Aaru, conformably to the decree of the Dweller in Busiris.

Wheat and barley (dhura) shall be given unto him therein, and he shall

flourish there just as he did upon earth; and he shall do whatsoever

it pleaseth him to do, even as do the Company of the Gods who are in

the Tuat, regularly and continually, for millions of times. THE CHAPTER OF COMING FORTH BY DAY AND OF OPENING UP A WAY THROUGH

THE AMEHET: Behold, the scribe Nebseni, whose word is truth, saith:-

Homage to you, O ye Lords of Kau, ye who are without sin, and who live

for the endless and infinite aeons of time which make up eternity. I

have opened up a way for myself to you. I have become a spirit in my

forms, I have gotten the mastery over my words of magical power, and I

am adjudged a spirit; therefore deliver ye me from the Crocodile

[which liveth in] this Country of Truth. Grant ye to me my mouth

that I may speak therewith, and cause ye that sepulchral offerings

shall be made unto me in your presence, for I know you, and I know

your names, and I know also the name of the mighty god before whose

face ye set your celestial food. His name is "Tekem." [When] he

openeth up his path on the eastern horizon of heaven, [when] he

alighteth towards the western horizon of heaven, may he carry me along

with him, and may I be safe and sound. Let not the Mesqet make an

end of me, let not the Fiend (Sebau) gain the mastery over me, let

me not be driven away from the doors of the Other World, let not you

doors be shut in my face, for my cakes are in the city of Pe, and my

ale is in the city of Tep. And there, in the celestial mansions of

heaven which my divine father Tem hath stablished, let my hands lay

hold upon the wheat and the barley, which shall be given unto me

therein in abundant measure, and may the son of my own body make ready

for me my food therein. And grant ye unto me when I am there

sepulchral meals, and incense, and unguents, and all the pure and

beautiful things whereon the god liveth, in every deed for ever, in

all the transformations which it pleaseth me [to perform] , and grant

unto me the power to float down and to sail up the stream in the Field

of Reeds (Sekhet-Aaru), [and may I reach Sekhet-hetepet (the Field

of Offerings)] . I am the twin Lion-gods (Shu and Tefnut).

Lady of Heaven. 7. Isis. 8. Nephthys. 9. Horus, the Great God. 10.

THE PRAYER OF ANI:- My heart, my mother; my heart, my mother! My

heart whereby I came into being! May nought stand up to oppose me at

[my] judgment, may there be no opposition to me in the presence of the

Chiefs (Tchatchau); may there be no parting of thee from me in the

presence of him that keepeth the Balance! Thou art my KA, which

dwelleth in my body; the god Khnemu who knitteth together and

strengtheneth my limbs. Mayest thou come forth into the place of

happiness whither we go. May the Sheniu officials, who make the

conditions of the lives of men, not cause my name to stink, and may no

lies be spoken against me in the presence of the God. [Let it be

satisfactory unto us, and let the Listener god be favourable unto

us, and let there be joy of heart (to us) at the weighing of words.

Let not that which is false be uttered against me before the Great

God, the Lord of Amentet. Verily, how great shalt thou be when thou

risest in triumph.]



THE SPEECH OF THOTH:- Thoth, the judge of right and truth of the

Great Company of the Gods who are in the presence of Osiris, saith:

Hear ye this judgment. The heart of Osiris hath in very truth been

weighed, and his Heart-soul hath borne testimony on his behalf; his

heart hath been found right by the trial in the Great Balance. There

hath not been found any wickedness in him; he hath not wasted the

offerings which have been made in the temples; he hath not committed

any evil act; and he hath not set his mouth in motion with words of

evil whilst he was upon earth.



SPEECH OF THE DWELLER IN THE EMBALMMENT CHAMBER (ANUBIS):- Pay

good heed, O righteous Judge to the Balance to support [the testimony]

thereof. Variant: Pay good heed to the weighing in the Balance of

the heart of the Osiris, the singing-woman of Amen, Anhai, whose

word is truth, and place thou her heart in the seat of truth in the

presence of the Great God.



THE SPEECH OF THE GODS:- The Great Company of the Gods say to

Thoth who dwelleth in Khemenu: That which cometh forth from thy

mouth shall be declared true. The Osiris the scribe Ani, whose word is

true, is holy and righteous. He hath not committed any sin, and he

hath done no evil against us. The devourer Am-mit shall not be

permitted to prevail over him. Meat offerings and admittance into

the presence of the god Osiris shall be granted unto him, together

with an abiding habitation i
