This week we are offering a selection from the Pyramid Texts, which are a collection of religious texts from Ancient Egypt, that date back to the Old Kingdom period. The following is a hymn to the Goddess Nut…
782. O Great One, who came into being in the sky, you have achieved power,
you have achieved strength, and have filled every place with your beauty;
the entire land is yours. Take possession of it, for you have enclosed the earth
and all things within your embrace, and you have set this King as an
Imperishable Star who is in you.
