The Body of the Great Cat

All praise to thee, O Ra!
Lord Ra, exalted Sekhem!
Thou art the Great Cat:
And thus,
Avenger of the gods;
And judge the rightness of words;
And overlord of magistrates.
You preside over the Holy Circle:
Truly the embodiment of the Great Cat.
after the "Seventy-Five Praises of Ra"
inscribed on the Royal Tombs at Thebes (c. 1200-1100 BCE)
