Words spoken by the Osiris Ani, the Osiris scribe Ani: Homage to you, Bull of Amentet. Says Thoth, king of eternity with me,
I am the great god at the side of the boat. I have fought for you; I am one of these gods of the Council who justified Osiris against his enemies on the day of the weighing of words.
I belong to your people, Osiris; I am one of these gods born of Nut, who slays the enemies of Osiris and imprisons the demons on his behalf.
I belong to your people, Horus; I have fought for you; I have travelled for the sake of your name.
I am Thoth who justified Osiris against his enemies on the day of the weighing of words in the great House of the Prince in Heliopolis.
I am Djedi, the son of Djedi, conceived with me in Busiris; I was born in Busiris.
I am with the mourners and wailing women of Osiris in the Lands of the Sisters, justifying Osiris against his enemies.
Ra has decreed that Thoth justify Osiris against his enemies; Thoth has done what was decreed for me.
I am with Horus on the day of clothing the statue of Osiris, opening the caverns for the washing of the Still of Heart, and unbolting the opening of the Seshit shrine in Re-Staw.
I am with Horus as the protector of the left shoulder of Osiris in Letopolis. I enter and come forth as a fire-god on the day of driving out demons in Letopolis.
I am with Horus on the day of the festival of Osiris, making offerings on the sixth day of the Quarter Moon Festival in Heliopolis.
I am the priest in Busiris, the Lion in the house of Osiris, exalters of the land.
I am he who sees the mysteries in Re-Staw; I am the reader of the festival-book of the soul in Busiris.
I am the Sem-priest in his duties.
I am the chief priest of Ptah on the day of placing the the Boat of Seker on its sledge; I receive the plow on the day of plowing the earth.
O offering-bearers of the perfected souls in the house of Osiris, bring near the perfected soul of the Osiris Ani, the true of voice, with you to the house of Osiris,
May he hear you; may he see as you see; may he stand as you stand; may he sit as you sit.
O givers of bread and drink to the perfected souls in the house of Osiris, give bread and drink at the times of morning and evening to the soul of the Osiris Ani, true of voice before all the gods of Abydos, true of voice with you.
O openers of the way, openers of the roads for the perfected souls in the house of Osiris, open then the way, open then the roads for the soul of the Osiris scribe and accountant of the offerings of all the gods, Ani, with you.
May he enter in might and come forth in peace in the house of Osiris;
May he not be driven back; may he not be turned away;
May he enter with honor; may he come forth as he desires.
May his voice be true in making his commands in the house of Osiris; may his words go with you; may he be glorious with you.
No sin is found there; the balance is empty of the case.
