Pagina 154 - Selforiginating Force, together with Nu, in the name of Chepera, from whom I am born daily. I am the Lord of Daylight and I execrate Death, let me not enter into the dungeons of the gods of the Tuat. It is I who give glory to Osiris and propitiate the hearts of those who are with him, my own friends. They inspire the fear of me, and put forward my might to those within their domains. And behold me, how I am raised upon my pedestal and upon my throne. I am Nu. They shall not overthrow me who do wrong....
Pagina 119 - I draw night to the divine words which my ears shall hear in the Tuat; let no pollution of my mother be upon me; deliver me, protect me from him who closeth his eyes at twilight and bringeth to an end in darkness.
