Asfetiu
Asfetiu

Fiends, criminals, slaves, blasphemers
The word of Ra is against you
Ye are fettered and bound with leather
Straps... Helpless, doomed
Wailing in unendurable torment
Lashed to the forked slave stick by the neck

Lashed to the slave stick
Abata ankh t khet
Neba t steb tcha
Lashed to the slave stick

Ra pronounceth the formula against thee
The Eye of Horus is prepared to attack thee
Sekhmet uttereth words of flame against thee
And pierceth thy breast

Your evil deeds have turned against you
Your plottings have come upon you
For your abominable acts
You shall be lashed to the slave stick

Abui. The god who burns the dead
Shall leave you smoldering in exile from the Netherworld
Abati, the gorer
Causes you to howl like a jackal in anguish

Your doom hath been decreed by Ra
Your unjust and perverse judgements are upon yourselves
The wickedness of your words of cursing are upon you
It is you who hath committed the unutterable
And wrought iniquity in the great hall

Your corruptible bodies shall be cut to pieces
Your souls shall have no existence
Ye shall never again see Ra
As he journyeth in the hidden land
The doom of Ra is upon you

Lashed to the slave stick
Abata ankh t khet
Lashed to the slave stick
Neba t steb tcha
