HYMN TO OSIRIS

Excerpt

“Homage to thee, Osiris, Lord of eternity, King of the Gods, whose names are manifold, whose forms are holy, thou being of hidden form in the temples, whose Ka is holy. Thou art the governor of Tattu (Busiris), and also the mighty one in Sekhem (Letopolis). Thou art the Lord to whom praises are ascribed in the nome of Ati, thou art the Prince of divine food in Anu. Thou art the Lord who is commemorated in Maati, the Hidden Soul, the Lord of Qerrt (Elephantine), the Ruler supreme in White Wall (Memphis). Thou art the Soul of Ra, his own body, and hast thy place of rest in Henensu (Herakleopolis). Thou art the beneficent one, and art praised in Nart. Thou makest thy soul to be raised up. Thou art the Lord of the Great House in Khemenu (Hermopolis). Thou art the mighty one of victories in Shas-hetep, the Lord of eternity, the Governor of Abydos. The path of his throne is in Ta-tcheser (a part of Abydos). Thy name is established in the mouths of men. Thou art the substance of Two Lands (Egypt).  http://www.thenazareneway.com/ebd_book_1.htm

    Sorry Mishi but you made your posts here personal so you don’t get to play— “JACK …You are a crawling coward. You haven’t the guts to have an open debate. You never did. You always ran and hid, like the craven slime you are. I am your bugbear, your nemesis.

    BUGBEAR! Oh, my!!!!!! come on you’re more like TROLLhouse cookies, a light snack with too many calories and no substance.

    @jack got a second for chat?

  8. nebdem says:

    I swear, sometimes it is pointless having conversations on HP with people you don’t know.

  9. nebdem says:

    Did you see above the “pingback” to this page?

  10. CobaltBlueDawg says:

    I haven’t been to HP in a looooonnnnnnnnngggggggg time. Has anyone seen Major Kong? I worried about him when I saw that fatal UPS crash. I don’t know if he flies for UPS or FedEx. He’s an interesting guy. Hope he’s OK.

  11. BoyInBOYCOTT says:

    back

  12. Jack says:

    I’m back too!

  13. BoyInBOYCOTT says:

    We may go see the Butler on Friday with Beau’s neighbor lady, it’s her birthday this week

  14. nebdem says:

    I’m going to forgo the Wednesday Night Fight Club, Jack. I prefer to spare you the humiliation.

  15. nebdem says:

    Since the theme is Egypt, what do you all think about what is happening over there right now?

    • Jack says:

      it’s frakked-up!

      • nebdem says:

        It is in the beginning phase of a civil war, perhaps worse because the MB having been excluded from the political process now has no intention of playing ball with the interim government, which means that this may be a source of animosity for the next couple of generations.

        • Jack says:

          I see this lasting into the new century.

          • nebdem says:

            It has that chance. Some fear it may escalate into a situation like Syria, but that is unlikely because the Egyptian Military will not allow the country to be roiled by something like that, but in the short term it doesn’t look hopeful. Somehow someway there needs to be dialogue, but that seems very unlikely. Who knows what will happen next?

    • BoyInBOYCOTT says:

      they are shooting at”OUR” boyfriend Richard Engle…the dirty sons of bitches
      he was just on Rachel

  16. Jack says:

    Neb what time period was the painting on this page from?

    • BoyInBOYCOTT says:

      It reminds me of about Rembrandt’s era, 1625-ish

    • nebdem says:

      David Roberts painted it and it is suggested as being ancient, but it would have to be sometime afterwards considering the sand’s height and the condition of the Sphinx, though it is imaginative, I would guess maybe somewhere around 300-700AD?

      • Jack says:

        Then he got it wrong because, “The Arab historian al-Maqrīzī, writing in the 15th century, attributes the loss of the nose to iconoclasm by Muhammad Sa’im al-Dahr, a Sufi Muslim from the khanqah of Sa’id al-Su’ada. In AD 1378, upon finding the local peasants making offerings to the Sphinx in the hope of increasing their harvest, Sa’im al-Dahr was so outraged that he destroyed the nose…”

        • nebdem says:

          Roberts may have had more input about the painting, I’ll have to look. All that I wrote above as mostly my estimation, not Roberts. Having said that-Thanks for posting the information about the nose of the Sphinx.
