Petition to Imhotep as the Patron of Artisans


Anedj her-ek Imhotep sa Ptah


Imhotep neb hemut netjer nefer


Homage to You Imhotep the Son of Ptah,


Imhotep the Master of Craftsmen, the beautiful god!


Come and shine, receive, O You beautiful offspring


Of Ptah Who is South of His Wall.


Take unto Yourself all things good and pure,


And give all things good and pure to this


Servant of the workshop of Ptah.


O Imhotep, glorious in Your sanctuaries,


Fashioner of splendors, radiant in Your


Body, make of my hands the hands of


Tatenen.


Make of my fingers the fingers of


Ptah-wer-kherep-hemut


("Ptah the Great Director of Craftsmen").


Make of my heart the vessel of Ptah the


Beautiful Who is Himself Atum.


May I give form to what is perfect,


May I give breath to what is good,


May my endeavors manifest the sky,


May immortality stream from my earth.


For I am in Your company, O Son of Ptah,


Imhotep the Great Whom the Netjeru (Gods)


Have embraced as one among their entourage.


Bless You, O Imhotep the Beautiful,


The wise, the merciful, the hearer of prayers!


May that which lives in You live in me.


May Your boons be upon my hands,


And the works of the Netjeru come forth


From my heart!


Anedj her-ek Imhotep sa Ptah


Imhotep neb hemut netjer nefer


Homage to You Imhotep the Son of Ptah,


Imhotep the Master of Artisans, the beautiful god!
