The Papyrus of Ani, Chapter 83

Copyright 1997 by Neil Parker.


To assume the form of a phoenix. Words spoken by the Osiris scribe Ani, true of voice in peace:

I flew up from primeval matter. I came into being as Khepri; I flourished as a plant; I was hidden like a turtle.

I am the seed of every god. I am yesterday of the four, and of these seven Uraei who come into being in the eastern land, the great one who illuminates the people with his body.

The god is Set. Thoth is between them in judgement for the one who is at the head of Letopolis, together with the souls of Heliopolis, the flood being between them.

I have come. I am arisen, and glorious, strong and divine among the gods.

I am Khons, of all the wrath of the wind.
