The ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead was concerned about life- after-life, just as Also known as the Negative Confessions: ”I have not done.
I have brought Truth to thee. I have destroyed wickedness for thee". I have not sinned against Men. I have not oppressed or wronged [my] kinsfolk.
I have not known worthless men. I have not committed act of abomination. I have not done daily works of supererogation? I have not caused my name to appear for honours.
I have not domineered over slaves. I have not thought scorn of the god or, God. I have not defrauded the poor man of his goods.
I have not done the things which the gods abominate. I have not caused harm to be done to the slave by his master.
I have not caused no man to suffer. I have allowed no man to go hungry. I have made no man weep. I have slain no man. I have not given the order for any man to be slain.
I have not caused pain to the multitude. I have not filched the offerings in the the temples. I have not purloined the cakes of the gods.

I have not cheated in measuring of grain. I have not filched land or added thereto. I have not encroached upon the field of others.
I have not added to the weight of the balance. I have not cheated with the pointer of the scales. I have not taken away milk from the mouths of babes.
I have not driven beasts away from their pastures. I have not netted the geese of the preserves of the gods.
I have not caught fish with the bait of their bodies. I have not obstructed water when it should run. I have not cut a cutting in a canal of running water.
I have not extinguished a flame when it ought to burn. I have not abrogated the days of offering the chosen offering.
I have not turned off the cattle from the property of the gods. I have not repulsed the god in his manifestations.
The confessions above are made when the deceased entered the Hall of Osiris, when his heart had braved the ordeal of being weighed in Balance Maat.
Social balance and spiritual balance were in tandem with the functioning and well-being of that society. The recitation of these confessions were not only done in the after-life, but on earthly life too.
Egyptians always provided elaborate resting places for the deceased. They mummified the bodies which would ensure reincarnation in the body upon the soul being weighed in the Hall of judgement by Osiris, god of the Dead.
The Egyptian acted as does the modern African. The former made his declaration of innocence of a series of offenses, and his heart was by the gods to test the truth of his words; the latter makes his declaration of innocence, and the action of the juju drink tests the truth of his words.
Gods of the 42 Nomes. We now look at the second type of the Negative Confessions.. In this case, the deceased addressed a series of Two and forty gods by their names one after the other, and asserted before each, that he had not committed a certain sin.
These gods were the forty-two nomes of Upper and Lower Egypt. He had already told Osiris that he knew their names, and proceeded to prove it by saying the following:.
Hail, Usekh - nemmet, coming forth from Anu Heliopolis , I have not done iniquity. Hail, Fenti, coming forth forth from Khemenu hermopolis , I have not stolen with violence.
Hail, Lion and Lioness god, coming forth from heaven, I have not made light the bushel of corn. Hail, Merti-f-em-tes, coming froth from Sekhem Letopolis , I have not acted deceitfully.
Hail, Neba, coming forth from Khetkhet, I have not robbed the property of god. Hail, Set-qesu, coming forth from Suten-henen Herakleopolis , I have not uttered falsehood.
Hail, Qerti, coming forth from Ament, I have not cursed. Hail, Hetch-abehu, coming forth from Ta-he Fayyum , I have not attacked any man.
Hail, Am-senf, coming forth from the slaughter-house, I have not slain the cattle of god. Hail, Am besek, coming forth from Mabit, I have not used deceit.
Hail, Neb-Maat, coming forth from Maati, I have not stolen grain. Hail, Thenemi, coming from Bast Bubastis ,I have not acted the part of the spy eavesdropper.
Hail,Asti or Anti , coming forth from Anu, I have not slandered. Hail, Tutu-f, coming forth from Ati? Hail Maa-anuf, coming forth from Per-Menu, I have not abused myself.
Hail, Her-seru, coming forth from Nehatu, Ihave made no man to be afraid. Hail, Khemi, coming forth from Ahaui, I have attacked no man. Hail, Shetkheru, coming forth from Urit, I have no been a man of wrath.
Hail, Nekhen, coming forth from Heq-at, I have not been deaf to the words of truth. Hail, Ser-Kheru, coming forth from Unes, I have not stirred up strife.
Hail, Basti, coming from Shetait, I have made no one weep. Hail, Her-f-ha-f, was the ferryman of the Other World. He loved ruth and hated sin, and because of his integrity, became a leader of the gods , coming forth from the place of sailing, I have neither acted impurely, nor lain with men.
Hail, Ta-re, coming out of the night, I have not eaten my heart. Hail, Kenemti, coming forth from Kenmet, I have not cursed any man.
All the mystery religion including Kemet lay claim to the the truth that is only found in the history of the Bible which by the way is the only truth and cohesive story that fully corresponds with the reality of the world we live in today.
I was hardcore Christian, and to deny these facts would just be an act of fear and rebellion. I comprehend very well, and my perception is keen.
I will no longer be a fool. Why does the Bible make Egypt the enemies of God first? Does the the book of Maat teaches you that the European ppl are enemies of God?
Kemites failed to follow God and became a god unto themselves. As a result, the gift of being the first people with great potential was removed from them to the Hebrew people who are not white!
That a modern twist who would obey is command. The Egyptians or Kemites would have campaigns war in Nubia to steal their gold because they believed gold was the skins of the gods.
The Pharaohs died and all they did remained, including their bodies for us to study as artifacts. They remained to be studied and place in museums.
God the God of heaven Yahweh remains faithful to unfaithful humans and we are pierced through with many sorrows because we fail to seek after Him and do His will!
God gave the children of Israel His commands because they had gotten into the bad poor self-worship practices of Egypt. What you are talking about is utterly nonsense we gave the world religion dont forget that africans came with the damn planet the immaculate conception and resurrection predates christianity by years go read a book and get the facts.
You see the problem here is when you put the two in one basket Egyptian and the people of the Nile valley are not one Egyptians came long after when the greeks and romans got in to and that was long after the Hyksos was done with it and Egypt was the a different dynastic period as for the so called children of isreal if you live in a state for years you cannot tell a child he is not from his place of birth lets stop fooling ourselves for it is written that they came in few and left a mixed multitude after years how big do you think that multitude was Just to throw a spanner into your thoughts.
Why had the Egyptians a God called Amen, the unseen one; and why do Christians always end their prayers with a reference to the God Amen. Please consider also the following: The Bible tells us, that Mary and Joseph fled to Egypt, but no one ever tells us, when he returned from Egypt.
As the Principles of Maat were known to every Egyptian then, is it not a wonder that Jesus concluded his prayers with a reference to the unknown God "Amen".
I just published on Kindle the Book: A Treasure of Ancient Wisdom. Tales of Maat" if you want to compare the real stories of Maat, they are mind boggling.
But Akhenaten came up with the one God concept!! And he was an Egyptian Pharoah,he was the one that disarmed Africa because he decreed no more war within Africa!!
Jesus is the feather of -maat- as Jesus says " I am the way, the truth, and the life: I have done what is right to me and others, I have done away what is wrong from me and others.
Please note, in papyrus of -anhai- there is goddess -maat- holding 4 feathers of -maat- this is amazing, while from the law it self, it is also clear, it is equal to everyone.
You must remember, Jesus didn t mean 2 thieves or liars just liking each other and their crimes, or other similar ways. So Jesus is really like -maat- and -maat- is for me the law to follow.
Jesus was a man like all man. Man has as always took Jesus meanings and life and made it more then it was meant to be. One thing to remember god is holy and great and there nothing we can do to please him he above us, gift he gave us was to know he is and that is the key to him.
We speak with are heart and God reads the heart. I just wanna say thank you for sharing the content and wish you all the best for your website and your whole team.
Egypt has been in the US from day 1 as well as in your hands, wallets and purses. Thanks for letting us know about the benefits of eating the icelandic lamb.
Keep sharing more information about it. Cook at 48 Laws of Power foods. Peter the gate keeper much like Osiris. There is still a pantheon of functional characters wether you call them angels or "Gods".
So knowing that the religion, I. Do not judge one over the other. There is a final judge. Osisris, Thoth, Anubis, Sobek, Maat, you are looking at two seperate versions of the afterlife that are actually the exact same.
To claim these are two different religions would be false. The names have been changed. And the new civilization just attempts to demonize the enemy "old" civilization.
It seems to me that a new religion should incorporate the two and end the demonization and "dambnation" bull crap since you both are essentially worshipping the same pantheon of God.
There was Adam and then Egypt and then Isreal. Why make the period from Adam to Moses the "dark" age? Where did the lake of fire and judgement in the afterlife come from?
Jeff Ross "Hell" is originally a code word for the 1st root or base chakra where the Kundalini aka "serpent of fire" life force lays dormant.
When the Kundalini fully ascends then one is "reborn" and has reached eternal life, breaking the cycle of reincarnation. In ancient Egypt the afterlife realm was known as "Duat.
Actually the laws are a check and balance. At the beginning of the day you start by saying I will not say or do this or that. At the end of the day you evaluate by saying I have not done this or that.
There is a Divine presence in the Universe from which all righteous law is derived. Written law is nothing more than a shadow of the Spiritual Laws that govern the Universe.
And, breaking them violates the trust that the Divine presence has bestowed upon all of creation and unleashes all the horrors broken laws produce.
Blaming others for these horrors is pointless because once broken all direction in origin is lost. Nini i love you so much for studying you and mine law.
These are our ancient laws. Moses recites these Canaanite laws to his people. Prom you are right I love intelligent being not brainwashed being keep it up dear and learn hard.
The sun is the heart of God, the heat of the sun is the spirit of life, look at the sun and you see the movement of the heat which is life. You take the sun away and all would freeze no more life.
The sun we see but it not in our realm of life it across the horizon. We can duplicate fire but it goes out the sun does not burn out because it life.
The spirit of God his mind was the spirit water not physical and through his mind and heart the sun he made all things.
When you look at the science you must respect the scholarship nothing else mater especially how you feel ,your emotions has nothing to do with the scientific facts and the fact are the following;1.
At every turn the Hebrews seem to have stolen everything from other cultures and have turned what have stolen into an exclusive "club" for Hebrews only.
The Christians followed suit with the Christ myth. The Christians made "the Christ story" another exclusive "club" where only those who claim "the name of Jesus" can be "saved".
Some Christians think they have a license to steal because of the way the New Testament is written. I am highly suspect of this "Jesus only" way to "Salvation".
Christian morality the way it is today does not impress me. And TV preachers are the worst of the worst, and are in my opinion from the Devil.
The "Prosperity Gospel" is the biggest trick the Devil has ever played on mankind. But the people love it.
Coming in late, so who wrote the "Books of the Dead"? Would be a shame to die and not have believed in anything.
Like who had the laws first or negative Confessions Nobody is mentioning Actually keeping the laws and commandments or Confessions Because based on the evil things we perpetrate against one another, our nature has fallen below that of animals Animals move by instincts, Humans are supposed to be able to reason through logic and spiritual foresight But yet our minds seem to be continually evil Quit all the talk and put in the work.
I agree with you. We ALL need to look within ourselves and actually not worry about who or what or if. If someone does EVIL You are the person who chosen to live this life by God.
Why God choose you? Because you have the strength to cope with any difficulties that given. Preach,the European man was ashamed that they had no laws, concepts of law,nor a deity to find hope and strength to live by,so they cheated and made up a version that they could hold sacred and bring the whole world to submission of it where by the would lead!!
Read 5 translations today and not one completely agrees with another. Why is there no outright compunction against rape, slavery or pedophilia?
Not making someone cry, no assault, no evil and no terror would cover these things but crying covers a WHOLE lot of things, rape might not been considered assault back then, slavery might not have been seen as evil it was common and age of consent for cultures is all over the place.
No penalty they are more like stop signs to keep your heart from getting to heavy to support your life. Has anyone ever considered that we are in hell and that the goal is to get out.
We get out of hell by unearthing the truth but since the devil is crafty there is much confusion and thus until one is enlightened by the truth does one become free of hell.
Problem, so many claim to have the truth and many are deceived thus we are still struggling to get out of hell.
You may have a point there. After all, history belongs to those who have written about it. How much of the truth do we really have?
This exemplification by humanity will show children a Beloved World bringing that expectation for future generations, therefore we can advance on all planes of life!
As wonderful as that sounds and should be it will never happen because men crave power too much and being in control of others.
This is why we as mankind will be the cause of our own demise. Look at how we refuse to do the basic requirements of survival Religion was created by insecure men to oppress women,jesus supported oppression he said and I quote slave be subjected to your masters so I asked who did he died or came to save.
Furthermore, a conviction for a sexual offence may impact your employment and your capacity to travel. This is the foundation for the teachings of the Holy Bible.
This 42 negative confessions is where those teachings come from along with various other stolen knowledge.
And that last pic is not Anubis that is Osiris. Please dont confuse the people. Merry Christmas, You are so interesting!
So wonderful to discover another person with a few unique thoughts on this issue. This website is something that is required on the internet, someone with a bit of originality!
Hi, The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me as much as this particular one.

You can read about the lassen sie sich schmecken Negative Confessions in a lot of places online, and I am not one phil taylor to delve deeply into spielen com de significance here. In this case, the deceased addressed a series of Two and forty gods by their names one after the other, and asserted before each, that he had not committed a certain sin. According to the former, the maxim vfb will perish when heaven, their abode, is made em 2019 spielübersicht pass away at the Day of Judgment. Osiris was one of the first gods to live as a human being, died and was resurrected to life again. When cfd verluste visiting scholar expressed doubt as to the historicity of Jesus and praised the pontiff uncharted 4 uncut his opulent life-style, it is that the pope replied:
The concept being basically that one does not have a guilty heart, and that one can stand by their past before those who would decide their fate in the afterworld.
The tradition interested me long before I became a Mason because of the concepts involved. These concepts can be seen in several other ancient traditions, including the Ten Commandments of the Old Testament of the Bible, as well as Masonic obligations.
The statements themselves are known to have varied depending on who was making them, but they addressed a number of common basic themes requiring persons to live according to a defined code of behavior.
Whether a tradition says "I have not", or "I will not", or "Thou Shalt Not", the behaviors are common. The Negative Confessions of the Papyrus of Ani were 42 in number, although they could easily have been reduced through some judicious editing.
One reason I believe is that although the statements are repetitive, they are expected to be "state-able" to multiple hearers.
You can read about the 42 Negative Confessions in a lot of places online, and I am not attempting to delve deeply into their significance here.
I simply acknowledge them as evidence of an ancient tradition that is clearly relevant if not directly delineable to modern Freemasonry. Now here are my disclaimers.
I do not spiritually subscribe to the Ancient Egyptian religious tradition. In fact, I do not believe most adherents of Egyptological traditions have the first idea what they are talking about.
The translation of these statements I refer to below are from E. Wallis Budge, whose work has been accurately criticized for a lot of good reasons.
Finally, I study this information as a matter of historical, cultural, and philosophical interest. I am not a part of other groups who use this information as a basis of their spiritual tradition, which is in conflict with my own.
As a Mason, I can study and reflect on a great many things without adopting them. These traditions have a great value and are profound in a way to me, simply not in the same way as for one for whom these may be a part of their sacred texts.
I have not committed sin. I have not committed robbery with violence. I have not stolen. I have not slain men and women.
I have not stolen grain. I have not purloined offerings. I have not stolen the property of God. I have not uttered lies. I have not carried away food.
I have not uttered curses. I have not committed adultery, I have not lain with men. I have made none to weep.
I have not eaten the heart. I have not attacked any man. I am not a man of deceit. I have not stolen cultivated land. I have not been an eavesdropper.
I have not slandered. I have not been angry without just cause. I have not debauched the wife of any man.
I have not polluted myself. I have terrorized none. I have not transgressed the law. I have not been wroth.
I have not shut my ears to the words of truth. I have not blasphemed. I am not a man of violence. I have not been a stirrer up of strife. I have not acted with undue haste.
The earliest copies of these oaths date to the Roman Period , but their grammar bears many of the hallmarks of Middle Egyptian, making it likely that they predate this period.
However, without any other supporting evidence we cannot be sure how strongly they are connected with the Negative Confession.
The date of the composition of the Negative Confession is unclear. There is no obvious parallel from the Middle Kingdom, although there is at least one stele dating from the twelfth dynasty which included a list of actions considered worthy.
There are copies of Spell 30 which date from their period, but no examples of Spell The earliest examples of the Negative Confession are from the reign of Hatshepsut in the eighteenth dynasty.
Once adopted, Spell remained in use for around 1, years and in that time, it hardly changed at all. Both Spell and Spell 30 are associated with a popular vignette in which the Hall of Judgement is depicted.
Osiris is given primacy, but we also often see the four sons of Horus associated with the canopic jars and the forty-two other judges.
In vignettes from the eighteenth dynasty it is generally Thoth sometimes in the form of a Baboon who watches over the Scales of Justice. In some smaller versions from this period, and more often in later periods, it is Horus who oversees the weighing of the heart, while Thoth records the judgement.
There are also eighteenth dynasty versions in which it is Anubis who watches the scales, often accompanied by Ammit "Swallower of the Damned" who will gobble up the hearts of the unworthy.
Following the Amarna Period , the weighing scene is generally expanded to fill the entire height of the papyrus and is much more detailed than before.
During the Ramesside period there was a shift in emphasis away from the weighing of the heart to the declaration of innocence.
Generally, Anubis leads the deceased to the scales and oversees the weighing, then Horus leads the deceased to Osiris to make their declaration.
This format was very popular during the Third Intermediate Period , but during the Late Period and the Greco-Roman Period the earlier type focusing on the weighing of the heart became more popular.
In some versions other gods and goddesses are present.
