,

Words spoken by the w’ab – Pure One:

O prophets, god’s fathers, ritual leaders, god’s purifiers, high-ranking priests, all those Having access who enter to the god, all governors in their monthly service, War-Priests, ‘ln-the-earth’-priests in the house of the forms, who have access to the Temple in great Purity, in order to prepare the ointment of the first feast, those who purify themselves for Performing the god’s rituals every day, those who purify Themselves at the first day, in order to let the god appear at his time of his navigation feasts! Do not introduce in trespassing! Do not enter in a state of grime! Do not tell lies in his house! Do not snatch through calumny! Do not accept any agenda in being partisan against the small for the great! Do not add to the weight and to the measuring rope, and you shall not detract from them! Do not change arbitrarily in the grain measure! Do not hurt the bushel of the eye of Ra! Do not reveal what you have seen in privacy! Of all secrets of the gods and goddesses! Do not stretch out your arm for possession in his temple! Do not take any liberty to steal his possession! Beware lest a fool says in his heart: One lives by the food of the gods! One designates as ‘food’ what is coming from the offering altar in circulation, After the god has satisfied himself with it. He sails in heaven; he crosses the celestial vault, while his eyes lie on his possessions at their location. Do not do anything bad against the servant of his house! He loves his servants very much! Do not have any sexual intercourse under pressure! Do not impose any condemnation! Do not exert any violence against the people in the fields and in the city, because they came out of his eyes, they originated from him! His heart is very sad about injustice in punishing, if there is no witness.  Do not run with your soles. Do not be short-tempered in a moment! Do not give your mouth free run in a discussion! Do not react with loud voice against the voice of somebody else! Do not impose any oath over something! Do not prefer the lies against the truth in a complaint! Beware that you are not big when passing your service times! There is none who complains against him who is free of being punished for something.  Do not sing in his house in the inner part of the temple at the location of the women! Do not do anything at a place where it should not be done, so that there is not a party taking place in his house, but only at the place in front of which it is allowed to sing by the entity of the staff! Do not open the jar in the inner part of the temple, so that you will not be drunk from it! Do not anything according to your heart, but you should look at the old writings! Pass the directions of the temple in your hands as an instruction for your children!

Hail to you, great god, master of the Ma’atwya, I have come to you, my master! May you fetch me that I can see your perfection! I know you; I know your name; I know the names of the forty two gods who are together with you in the hall of the Ma’atwya who live on those belonging to isafat who gulp down their blood on that day of calculating the characters before Wanan-nafar. Behold, the one whose two daughters are his two eyes, lord of Ma’at is your name! Behold, I have come to you, having fetched Maat and abolished injustice. I am pure four times. My purity is the purity of the great Bennu-bird who is in Herakleopolis, because mine is this nose of the master of breath who keeps all people alive, on that day of filling the Wadja’at-eye in Heliopolis In the second month of the time of sowing at the last day. In front of the master of this land. It is me who sees the filling of the wadja’at-eye in Heliopolis.

I know you; I know your names! I do not fall to your massacre. You do not let my isafat ascend to this god whom you are following. My deed does not occur with you, you speak the truth concerning me in front of the Almighty! Because I committed the Ma’at in Kamat, I do not blaspheme any god.
