The Papyrus of Ani, Chapter 29

Copyright 1997 by Neil Parker.


A spell for not letting the heart of a man be snatched away from him in the underworld.

Words spoken by the Osiris Ani, true of voice: Go back, messenger of every god. Have you come to [take] this my living heart? This living heart of mine will not be given to you. Travelling, the gods hear my offering; they fall upon their faces [...?] in their own land.
