|The Chapter Of Breathing The Air And Of Having
Power Over Water In Khert-Neter|
The Osiris Ani saith:- Open to me! Who art thou? Whither goest thou? What is thy name? I
am one of you. Who are these with you? The two Merti goddesses (Isis and Nephthys). Thou
separatest head from head when [he] entereth the divine Mesqen chamber. He causeth me to
set out for the temple of the gods Kem-heru. "Assembler of souls" is the name of my
ferry-boat. "Those who make the hair to bristle" is the name of the oars. "Sert" ("Goad") is the
name of the hold. "Steering straight in the middle" is the name of the rudder; likewise, [the
boat] is a type of my being borne onward in the lake. Let there be given unto me vessels of
milk, and cakes, and loaves of bread, and cups of drink, and flesh, in the Temple of Anpu.
