Utterance 213

134: O Unas, you have not gone dead, you have gone alive to sit on the throne of Osiris. Your scepter is in your hand that you may give orders to the living, the handle of your lotus-shaped scepter in your hand. Give orders to those of the Mysterious Sites (the dead)!

135: Your arm is that of Atum, your shoulders are those of Atum, your belly is that of Atum, your back is that of Atum, your bottom is that of Atum, your two legs are those of Atum, your face is that of Anubis. The sites of Horus serve you, the sites of Seth serve you.


Utterance 214

136: O Unas, beware of the Lake!
To say four times:
The messengers of your ka have come to you, the messengers of your father have come to you, the messengers of Re have come to you.

137: Go after your sun! You are to purify yourself. Your bones are those of female hawks, the goddesses who are in heaven, so that you may be by the side of the god and leave your house to your son, your procreation. Everyone who shall speak evil against the name of Unas,

138: when you go up, is predestined by Geb to be a despised one of his city, he shall flee and falter. You are to purify yourself with the cool water of the stars, and you will climb down upon ropes of brass, on the arms of Horus, in his name He-of-the-Henu-barge.

139: The (glorified) humanity bewail you after the Imperishable Stars have carried you. Enter then into the place where your father is, where Geb is! He gives you that which was on the brow of Horus, so that you become powerful and full of glory through it, so that you become the One-at-the-Head-of-the-Westerners through it.


Utterance 215

140: O Unas! Your messengers go, your heralds hurry to your father, to Atum.
"Atum, let him rise to you, fold him in your arms!

141: There is no god, who has become a star, without a companion."
"Shall I be your companion?"
"Look at me! you have seen the forms of the children of their fathers, who know their spell, who are now Imperishable Stars".
May you see the two inhabitants of the Palace: this is Horus and Seth!

142: May you bespit the face of Horus and remove his injury! May you catch the testicles of Seth and remove his mutilation! That one is born for you, this one is conceived for you.

143: You are born, o Horus, as the one whose name is He-before-whom-the-earth-quakes;
(you are conceived, Seth, as the one whose name is ) He before-whom-the-sky-shakes.
Such a one has no mutilation (Horus),
such a one has no injury (Seth),
such a one has no injury, such a one has no mutilation,
(so) you have no injury, you have no mutilation!

144: You are born for Osiris, o Horus!
You have become more glorious than he,
You have become more powerful than he.

145: There is no seed of a god which has perished, neither (has he) who belongs to him. You will not perish, who belong to him. Re-Atum does not give you to Osiris, he does not reckon your heart, he has no power over your breast. Re-Atum does not give you to Osiris, he has no power over your breast.

146: Osiris, you cannot have power over him, your son cannot have power over him. Horus, you cannot have power over him, your father cannot have power over him.

147: You belong, o this one, to this god, as the Twins of Atum said:
"Lift yourself up", so said they, "in your name God", and so you become Atum for every god.

148: Your head is that of Horus of the Duat, O Imperishable One, your brow is the One-with-the-Two-Eyes, O Imperishable One, your ears are (those of) the Twins of Atum, O Imperishable One, your eyes are (those of) the Twins of Atum, O Imperishable One, your nose is (that of) a jackal, O Imperishable One, your teeth are (those of) Sopdu, O Imperishable One,

149: your arms are (those of) Hapy and Duamutef, which you need to ascend to heaven, and you ascend, your legs are (those of) Imsti and Qebehsenuf, which you need to descend to the lower heaven, and you descend. All your members are (those of) the twins of Atum, o Imperishable One! You did not pass away, your ka does not pass away.
You are a ka!

150: I have come to you, Nephtys. I have come to the Evening Barge. I have come to you, True-is-she-over-the-Red, I have come to you, she-who-remembers-the-kas. Remember him, Unas!

151: Orion is encircled by the Duat, when the One-who-lives-in-the-Horizon purifies himself. Sothis is encircled by the Duat, when the One-who-lives-in-the-Horizon purifies himself. This Unas is encircled by the Duat, when the One-who-lives-in-the-Horizon purifies himself. He is content because of them, he is refreshed because of them, in the arms of His father, in the arms of Atum.

152: To say the words: "Re-Atum, Unas comes to you, an Imperishable Spirit, Lord of Dispensation in the site of the four papyrus columns. Your son comes to you, this Unas comes to you, that you (both) may stride over the sky, united in darkness, that you may rise on the horizon in the place where you like to be [podium, pyramid].

153: Seth and Nephtys, hurry! Announce to the gods of the South and their spirits : He comes indeed, this Unas, an Imperishable Spirit!
If he wills that you will die, you will die;

155: Osiris and Isis, hurry! Announce to the gods of the North and their spirits: He comes indeed, this Unas, an Imperishable Spirit, like the honored (star) over the Nile, so that the spirits in the waters honor him. Whom he wills that he live, he lives. Whom he will that he die, he dies.

Your son comes to you, this Unas comes to you, that you (both) may stride over the sky, united in darkness, that you may rise on the horizon in the place where you like to be.

157: Thoth, hurry! Announce to the gods of the West and their spirits: He comes indeed, this Unas, an Imperishable Spirit, decked like Anubis on the neck, who rules over the Western Mountain, that he may reckon hearts and that he may have power over breasts! Whom he wills that he live, he lives. Whom he will that he die, he dies.

158: Re-Atum, Unas comes to you, an Imperishable Spirit, Lord of Dispensation in the site of the four papyrus columns. Your son comes to you, this Unas comes to you, that you (both) may stride over the sky, united in darkness, that you may rise on the horizon in the place where you like to be.

159: Horus, hurry! Announce to the gods of the East and their spirits : He comes indeed, this Unas, an Imperishable Spirit! Whom he wills that he live, he lives. Whom he will that he die, he dies.

161: To say the words:
"O Osiris, this Unas comes indeed, weary of the Nine, an Imperishable Spirit, to reckon hearts, to take kas, to grant kas. His every appointment obliges one (to do his duty), him who he has elevated, and him who applied to him.

162: There is no one who withdraws because he will have no bread, his ka will have no bread, his bread will be withheld from him [worship and address Unas as a god, in do ut des fashion]. Geb said, and it came forth from the mouth of the Ennead:
"Hawk, after he has seized (his own)!" so they said, "Lo! you are ensouled and powerful!".

163: He comes indeed, this Unas, weary of the Nine, an Imperishable spirit, he that bore more than you, he that suffered more than you, he that is more weary than you, he that became greater than you, he who will be happier than you, he who roars louder than you. You have no more time there! Lo, this is what Seth and Thoth have done, your two brothers, who could not bewail you!

164: Isis and Nephtys, come together, come together, unite! He comes indeed, this Unas, weary of the Nine, an Imperishable Spirit.

The Western Ones, those who are upon earth, belong to this Unas.
He comes indeed, this Unas, weary of the Nine, an Imperishable Spirit.

195: Be pleased with him, be pleased with his purification, be pleased with the words he says to you:
"How beautiful is your face when you are pleased, when you are new and young! A god has given you birth, the father of gods!".
He has come to you, O Great of Magic! It is Horus who fought to protect his Eye, Great of Magic.

198: O jnw, [you came forth from him, he came forth from you]. the Great Ikhet [has given you birth], Ikhet-utet has adorned you, the Ikhet-utet has given birth, the Great Ikhet [has adorned you] , for you are indeed Horus who fought to protect his Eye.

"Stand up upon this land [which came out of Atum, the spittle] which came out of the Becoming One! May you become over it, may you be high over it, so that your father sees you, so that [Re] sees you!

200: He [comes] to you, O his father, he comes to you, O Re, he comes to you, O his father, he comes to you, O Overthrown One, he comes to you, O his father, he comes to you, O pndn, he comes to you, O his father, he comes to you, O Wanderer,

202: May you grant that this Unas seize the Cool Region and receive the horizon! May you grant that this Unas rule over the Nine, so that he provide the Ennead (with offerings)! May you give the herdman's staff into the hand of this Unas, so that the head of Lower and Upper Egypt be bowed.

203: He comes down (to meet) his adversary and stands up, the greatest chief in his great kingdom. Nephthys praised him after he had captured (?) his opponent.

204: You have adorned yourself as Great-of-Magic, He-in-Ombos, Lord of the South (= Seth). It will not be lost for you, it will not cease for you. Lo, you are full of glory, powerful one, more than the gods of the South, together with their spirits!

205: You who the Pregnant One ejected when you did cleave the night, adorned are you like Seth, who came out forcibly! (But) more fortunate is he whom Isis praises :

206: You have adorned yourself as Horus with the two pupils (?). It will not be lost for you, it will not cease for you. Lo, you are full of glory, powerful one, more than the gods of the North, together with their spirits!

207: You make yourself free of what should be washed away for Atum in [Heliopolis, and you go down] with him. You judge the wants in the Netherworld and stand (as king) over the places of the primeval ocean. You come into being with your father Atum, you are high with your father Atum, you rise with your father Atum. The wants (of the Netherworld) are severed from you, your head (is held) by the nurse of Heliopolis.

208: You go up and open the way through the bones of Shu (air), the embrace of your mother Nut enfolds you, you purify yourself on the horizon and leave that which should be purified from you in the Lakes of Shu.

211: You have power over your body, there is no one to oppose you. You are born because of Horus (in you), you are conceived because of Seth (in you). You have purified yourself in the Hawk nome (Third Nome of Lower Egypt), you have received your purification in the Uninjured-Ruler nome (Thirteenth of Lower Egypt) before your father, before Atum.

212: You have come into being, you have become high, you have become a spirit! Cool it is for you in the embrace of your father, in the embrace of Atum.

"To stir up, to turn around [court ?], O! O! O Unas, stand up, sit down to the thousand of bread, to the thousand of beer! The roast of your double rib is from the slaughter house, your rth-bread from the Wide Hall [or court?].

215: As a god is supplied with the offering meal, Unas is supplied with this his bread. You have come to your soul, Osiris, who is mighty among the spirits, who is mighty in his places, who is under the protection of the Ennead in the Prince's Hall.

216: O Unas, come up to me, betake you to me, do not be far from the tomb, your protection (?)! I have given you the Eye of Horus, I have reckoned it to you, may it be pleasant for you!

217: O Unas, stand up, receive this your bread from (my) hand! O Unas, I am your helper!"


Utterance 224

219: A royal offering of all your insignia,

220: in all your places! Your lotus-shaped scepter is at the head of the living, your staff is at the head of the spirits, like Anubis Khentimentiu, like Andjti at the head of the western nomes.

221: How pleasant is your condition! You become a spirit, o Unas, among your brothers the gods. How changed, how changed (is your state)! (Therefore) protect your children! Beware of your border which is on Earth! Put on your body and come towards them!

118: Let the hoers be in jubilation, the heart of Tssw-breast be exalted! They have swallowed the Eye of Horus, the healthy one, the one in Heliopolis. The finger of Unas, the small one, draws out that which is in the navel of Osiris.

119: Unas is not thirsty, he is not hungry, the heart of Unas is not faint (?), for the arms of the Desert God [also allusions to Libya and desert in tour of domain in Antechamber] keep away his hunger! Fill! Make the hearts full!

"O you who preside over the offerings, o you who belong to Plenty, Unas has been directed to ftk, the cupbearer of Re! Re has directed him himself. Re sends him to the overseers of provender of this year. What they seize, they give it to him. They take hold of and they give him barley and spelt, bread and beer.

121: For it is to Unas that his father granted, that Re granted, barley and spelt, bread and beer. For it is he, the Great Bull who strikes Nubia, for to Unas, indeed, belong the five portions of bread, drink and cakes in the Hall, three (of which) are in the sky with Re, two are on earth with the Two enneads.

122: For he is the unbound one being unbound [contrast with cattle ?], for he is the seen one being seen. Says(?) Re: "It is better for him today than yesterday".

123: Unas has united himself to the Moist, he kissed the Dry Seat, Unas joined himself to the Flame, Unas unites himself with the Beautiful One. He is afraid of Shu who disperses and scatters (?). It is indeed the Beautiful One who fears Unas, and she gives bread to Unas. She does him good on this day."

"Judge, arise! Thoth, be high! Sleepers, awake! The inhabitants of Nubia arise before the Great Trembler who comes out of the nome, Upuaut who comes out of the bush!

127: Pure is the mouth of Unas! The two Enneads cense Unas. Pure indeed is the tongue which is in his mouth! Excrement is an abomination of Unas. Unas rejects urine [excrement and urine mentioned in Antechamber spells while slaughtering], Unas loathes his abomination.

128: The abomination of Unas is this : he does not eat this abomination, (and) like Seth rejects the poison(?) of these two who cross the sky, these are Horus and Thoth. Take Unas with you,

129: that he may eat of what you eat, that he may drink of what you drink, that he may live on what you live, that he may sit on what you sit, that he may be strong in what you are strong, that he may sail in what you sail!

130: The pavilion of Unas is woven with reeds [pavilion in S court? 'Field of Rushes'?], the plenty of Unas is in the Field of offerings. His offering is among you, you gods! The water of Unas is wine, like that of Re, Unas goes around the sky like Re, he traverses the sky like Thoth."


Utterance 211

131: To say the words:
"The abomination of Unas is hunger, he does not eat it. The abomination of Unas is thirst, he does not eat it. Unas it is, indeed, who gives bread to the Existing Ones, his nurse is the Milk-goddess. It is she who makes him live again, it is she, indeed, who gives Unas birth.

132: Unas is conceived at night, Unas is born at night, for he belongs to the Followers of Re who are before the Morning Star. Unas is conceived in the Watery Abyss, he is being born in the Watery abyss. He has come, he has brought your bread which he has found there!"

"The Eye of Horus trickles on the bush of the Dnw-plant. Khentimentiu comes to him indeed, he has brought him the food of Horus-who-is-at-the-head-of-his-houses. On what he lives, Unas lives on it. Of what he eats, Unas eats. Of what he drinks, Unas drinks. One joint (and one) cake, this is his offering."
