The Papyrus of Ani, Chapter 8

Copyright 1997 by Neil Parker.


[A spell to] cross over into the land of Amentet by day. Words spoken by the Osiris Ani:

Hermopolis is open; my head is sealed [by] Thoth.

The eye of Horus is perfect; I have delivered the eye of Horus, and my ornament is glorious on the forehead of Ra, the father of the gods.

Osiris is the one who is in Amentet. Indeed, Osiris knows who is not there; I am not there.

I am the moon-god Iah among the gods; I do not fail.

Indeed, Horus stands; he reckons you among the gods.
