Ancient Egyptian BOOK OF THE DEAD



We are all fascinated by Egypt, its pyramids, its architecture, its civilization, its culture and especially its pharaohs. According to Biblical account, we know that Pharaoh was cold-hearted and kept Israel in captivity. However, Scriptures indicate that YAHWEH's anger against Egypt was not limited to just Pharaoh's wicked heart. But He also strongly condemned the esoteric rites and practices of Pharaoh.

  • Ezekiel 29:2-3 "Son of man, set your face against Pharaoh king of Egypt and prophesy against him and against all Egypt. Speak to him and tell him that this is what the Lord GOD says: Behold, I am against you, O Pharaoh king of Egypt, O great monster who lies among his rivers, who says, ‘The Nile is mine; I made it myself."


The Book of the Dead of Kemet (ancient Egypt) is the title generally given to a collection of Egyptian hieroglyphs and papyri found in tombs or mummy cases. Ancient Egyptians attributed the Book of the Dead to Thoth, god of Wisdom, and recorder of the men's deeds at the time the soul was being judged. The deposit of the body of the pharaohs inside the tomb was accompanied by ceremonies, prayers and rituals preceding the burial.  These rituals referred to the future life in order to ensure that the dead get a trouble-free passing to God in the world to come.


Here are some excerpts from the Book of the Dead of Kemet that reveal the esoteric practices of the pharaohs and their gods. Many satanic rituals that have survived to the present day continue to echo the practices of ancient Egypt.

  • Joël 3:19-21 "Egypt will become desolate, and Edom a desert wasteland, because of the violence done to the people of Judah, in whose land they shed innocent blood. But Judah will be inhabited forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. For I will avenge their blood, which I have not yet avenged.” For the LORD dwells in Zion."

From the Papyrus of Nebseni, Brit. Mus. No. 9900, Sheet 14 - Human massacres and cannibalism

  • "Who is this invisible god?... It is An-a-f (he who bringeth his arm.). "As concerning 'the night when the sentences of doom are promulgated,' it is the night of the burning of the damned, and of the overthrow of the wicked at the Block, and of the slaughter of souls. "

  • "Who is this [slaughterer of souls]? ... "It is Shesmu, the headsman of Osiris. "[Concerning the invisible god] some say that he is Aapep when he riseth up with a head bearing upon it [the feather of] Maat (Truth). But others say that he is Horus when he riseth up with two heads, whereon one beareth [the feather of] Maat, and the other [the symbol of] wickedness. He bestoweth wickedness on him that worketh wickedness, and right and truth upon him that followeth righteousness and truth. "Others say that he is Heru-ur (the Old Horus), who dwelleth in Sekhem; others say that he is Thoth; others say that he is Nefer-Tem; and others say that he is Sept who doth bring to nought the acts of the foes of Nebertcher. "Deliver thou the scribe Nebseni, whose word is truth, from the Watchers, who carry murderous knives, who possess cruel fingers, and who would slay those who are in the following of Osiris." May these Watchers never gain the mastery over me, and may I never fall under their knives!

  • "Who are these Watchers? ... They are Anubis and Horus, [the latter being] in the form of Horus the sightless. Others, however, say that they are the Tchatcha (sovereign princes of Osiris), who bring to nought the operations of their knives; and others say that they are the chiefs of the Sheniu chamber. "May their knives never gain the mastery over me. May I never fall under the knives wherewith they inflict cruel tortures. For I know their names, and I know the being, Matchet, who is among them in the House of Osiris. He shooteth forth rays of light from his eye, being himself invisible, and hegoeth round about heaven robed in the flames which come from his mouth, commanding Hapi, but remaining invisible himself."

  • "Who are those who preside over their altars? "Those who preside over their altars are the similitude of the Eye of Ra, and the similitude of the Eye of Horus. "O Ra-Tem, thou Lord of the Great House [in Anu], thou Sovereign (life, strentgh, health [be to thee]) of all the gods, deliver thou the scribe Nebseni, whose word is truth, from the god whose face is like unto that of a greyhound, whose brows are like those of a man, who feedeth upon the dead, who watcheth at the Bend of the Lake of Fire, who devoureth the bodies of the dead, and swalloweth hearts, and who voideth filth, but who himself remaineth unseen."

  • "Who is this greyhound-faced god? ... His name is 'Everlasting Devourer,' and he liveth in the Domain [of Fire] (the Lake of Unt). "As concerning the Domain of Fire, it is that Aat which is in Naarutef, and is near the Sheniu chamber. The sinner who walketh over this place falleth down among the knives [of the Watchers]. "Others, however, say that the name of this god is 'Mates,' and that he keepeth watch over the door of Amentet; others say that his name is 'Beba,' and that he keepeth watch over the Bend [of the stream] of Amentet, and yet others say that his name is 'Herisepef.' "Hail, Lord of Terror, Chief of the Lands of the South and North, thou Lord of the Desert, who dost keep prepared the block of slaughter, and who dost feed on the intestines [of men]!"

  • "Who is this Keeper? ... It is the Heart of Osiris, which is the devourer of all slaughtered things. "The Urrt Crown hath been given unto him, with gladness of heart, as Lord of Hensu."

  • "Who is this? "It is Ra himself ... "[Deliver thou the Osiris the scribe Ani, whose word is truth] from the great god who carrrieth away souls, who eateth hearts, who feedeth upon offal, who keepeth watch in the darkness, who dwelleth in the Seker Boat; those who live in sin fear him"

  • "Who is this? ... It is Suti, but others say that it is Smamur, the soul of Keb. "Hail, Khepera in thy boat, the two Companies of the Gods are in thy body. Deliver thou the Osiris the scribe Ani, whose word is truth, from the Watchers who pass sentences of doom, who have been appointed by the god Nebertcher to protect him, and to fasten the fetters on his foes, and who slaughter in the torture chambers; there is no escape from their fingers. May they never stab me with their knives, may I never fall helpless into their chambers of torture. I have never done the things which the gods hate. I am he who is pure in the Mesqet chamber. And saffron cakes have been brought unto him in Tannt."

From the Pylons of the House of Osiris

These Pylons refer to the queen of heaven also known as Semiramis, Astarte, Isis, Ishtar, Sammur-amat, Venus, etc

  • Jeremiah 7:18 "The sons gather wood, the fathers light the fire, and the women knead the dough to make cakes for the Queen of Heaven; they pour out drink offerings to other gods to provoke Me to anger."

  • Jeremiah 44:17 "Instead, we will do everything we vowed to do: We will burn incense to the Queen of Heaven and offer drink offerings to her, just as we, our fathers, our kings, and our officials did in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. At that time we had plenty of food and good things, and we saw no disaster.”

  • The Sixteenth Pylon. The Osiris Heru-em-khebit, whose word is truth, shall say when he cometh to this pylon: "Terrible one, lady of the rain- storm, destroyer of the souls of men,devourer of the bodies of men, orderer, producer, and maker of slaughter" is thy name. She inspecteth the swathing of the helpless one.


  • The Eighteeth Pylon. The Osiris Heru-em-khebit, whose word is truth, shall say when he cometh to this pylon: "Fire-lover, pure one, lover of slaughterings, cutter off of heads, devoted one, lady of the Great House, slaughterer of fiends at eventide" is thy name. She inspecteth the swathing of the helpless one.


  • The Twentieth Pylon. The Osiris Heru-em-khebit, whose word is truth, shall say when he cometh to this pylon: "Dweller in the cavern of her lord, her name is Clother, hider of her creations, conqueror of hearts, swallower [of them]" is thy name. She inspecteth the swathings of the White House.


  • The Twenty-First Pylon. The Osiris Heru-em-khebit, whose word is truth, shall say when he cometh to this pylon: "Knife which cutteth when [its name] is uttered, slayer of those who approach thy flame" is thy name. She possesseth hidden plans.



APPENDIX (From the Papyrus of Nu, Sheet 18) - Prayer to Osiris

  • Esaie30:7 "Egypt’s help is futile and empty; therefore I have called her Rahab Who Sits Still."

And when the soul hath departed, a man seeth corruption, and the bones of his body crumble away and become stinking things, and the members decay one after the other, the bones crumble into a helpless mass, and the flesh turneth into foetid liquid. Thus man becometh a brother unto the decay which cometh upon him, and he turneth into a myriad of worms, and he becometh nothing but worms, and an end is made of him, and perisheth in the sight of the god of day (Shu), even as do every god, and every goddess, and every bird, and every fish, and every creeping worm, and every reptile, and every beast, and every thing whatsoever. Let [all the Spirits fall] on their bellies [when] they recognize me, and behold, the fear of me shall terrify them; and thus also let it be with every being that hath died, whether it be animal, or bird, or fish, or worm, or reptile. Let life [rise out of] death. Let not the decay caused by any reptile make an end [of me], and let not [enemies] come against me in their various forms. Give thou me not over to the Slaughterer in this execution-chamber, who killeth the members, and maketh them rot, being [himself] invisible, and who destroyeth the bodies of the dead, and liveth by carnage. Let me live, and perform his order; I will do what is commanded by him. Give me not over to his fingers, let him not overcome me, for I am under thy command, O Lord of the Gods.


Horus: The son of Osiris and Isis, he is mainly regarded as a god of war. He is represented as a man with a falcon or a falcon's head

Ra: Known as the sun god, supreme lord of the gods, he also had the head of a falcon and a sun disk on his head with a coiled snake on top. It is the sun god who embodies Satan / Lucifer. 



Cannibal Hymn of Pharaoh Unis

There are also passages that appear in the famous "Cannibal Hymn" found in the pyramid of Pharaoh Unis, the last king of the fifth dynasty of ancient Egypt. He was the first pharaoh to incorporate texts into his pyramid.


Utterance 273

  • "...Pharaoh is the Bull of the Sky, who shatters at will, who lives on the being of every god, who eats their entrails,
    even of those who come with their bodies full of magic from the Island of Flame."

  • "...Pharaoh is Lord of Offerings, who knots the cord, and who himself prepares his meal. Pharaoh is he who eats men and lives on gods."

  • "It is 'Grasper-of-the-top-knot', who is Kehau, who lassoes them for Pharaoh. It is 'Serpent Raised-head' who guards them for him and restrains them for him. It is 'He-upon-the-willows' who binds them for him. It is Courser, slayer of Lords, who will cut their throats for Pharaoh, and will extract for him what is in their bodies, for he is the messenger whom Pharaoh sends to restrain. It is Shezmu (6) who will cut them up for Pharaoh, and cooks meals of them in his dinner-pots."

*Tcheser-tep est l'un des quarante deux juges de la salle d'Osiris

**Khonsu, or "wanderer" was a Moon-god prominent at Thebes. In the New Kingdom his role changed. No longer a bloodthirsty god, he is regarded as the child of Amun and Mut.

***Shezmu is a bloodthirsty god of wine and ungruent-oil presses. Here he acts as butcher who cuts the deities up and cooks them.

Utterance 274 - The meal of the pharaohs

  • "It is Pharaoh who eats their magic and gulps down their Akhs. Their big ones are for his morning meal, their middle-sized ones are for his evening meal, their little ones are for his night meal, their old men and their old women are for his incense-burning. It is the Great Ones in the North of the sky who light the fire for him to the cauldrons containing them, with the thighs of their eldest (as fuel)"

  • "Those who are in the sky serve Pharaoh, And the butcher's blocks are wiped over for him, with the feet of their women.

  • "Lo, their Ba is in Pharaoh's belly. Their Akhs are in Pharaoh's possession, as the surplus of his meal out of the gods. Which is cooked for Pharaoh from their bones."


Utterance 397 a – c

  • “Unis is the bull of the sky, aggressive in his heart, living on the being of every god, eating entrails of them, who came with their bellies full of magic from the Isle of Flame (Sethe 1908: 207 – 208). Unis doesn't only devour magic of the gods, he is a judge of these gods"


Utterance 399 a – b

  • “Unis is the one who judges with Him, whose name is hidden in that day of slaughtering the Oldest Ones (Sethe 1908: 208). Unis is a possessor of offerings, “who prepares his offering meal himself”.

Utterance 400a - 403c 

  • “Unis is one who eats men and lives on gods, a lord of messengers who dispatches orders. It is Grasper of topknots who is in cauldron, who lassoes them for Unis. It is the Serpent with raised head, who guards them for him and restrains them for him. It is the One who is over the reddening (blood), who binds them for him. It is Khons who cuts the lords, he strangles them for Unis, and extracts for him what is in their bodies. It is the messenger whom he (Unis) sends to confront. It is Shezmu who cuts them up for Unis, who cooks for him the things which are in them on his evening hearth-stones. It is Unis who eats their magic, who swallows their akhs” (Sethe 1908: 209 – 211).

From the Papyrus of Nu, Brit. Mus. No. 10477, Sheet 24

Nu, the steward of the keeper of the seal, whose word is truth, saith:- Homage to you, O ye gods who dwell in your Hall of Maati! I know you, I know your names. Let me not fall under your knives of slaughter, and bring ye not forward my wickedness to this god in whose following ye are. Let not evil hap come upon me through you. Speak ye the truth concerning me in the presence of Neb-er-tcher, for I have done what is right and just in Ta-Mera. I have not cursed the god, and my evil hap did not come upon him that was king in his day.


  • Isaiah 8:1-23 "In the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, on the first of the month, the word of the LORD came to me saying, Son of man, take up a lamentation over Pharaoh king of Egypt and say to him,You compared yourself to a young lion of the nations, Yet you are like the monster in the seas; And you burst forth in your rivers And muddied the waters with your feet  And fouled their rivers... All the shining lights in the heavens I will darken over you. And will set darkness on your land,” Declares the Lord GOD. “For thus says the Lord GOD, “The sword of the king of Babylon will come upon you.... All of them were slain by the sword uncircumcised, though they instilled their terror in the land of the living. Nor do they lie beside the fallen heroes of the uncircumcised, who went down to Sheol with their weapons of war and whose swords were laid under their heads; but the punishment for their iniquity rested on their bones, though the terror of these heroes was once in the land of the living... These Pharaoh will see, and he will be comforted for all his hordes slain by the sword, even Pharaoh and all his army,” declares the Lord GOD. Though I instilled a terror of him in the land of the living, yet he will be made to lie down among the uncircumcised along with those slain by the sword, even Pharaoh and all his hordes,” declares the Lord GOD."

  • Jeremiah 9:25-26 "Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will punish all who are circumcised yet uncircumcised. Egypt, Judah, Edom, Ammon, Moab, and all the inhabitants of the desert who clip the hair of their temples. For all these nations are uncircumcised, and the whole house of Israel is uncircumcised in heart."​

  • Jeremiah 46:25 "The LORD of Hosts, the God of Israel, says: “Behold, I am about to punish Amon god of Thebes, along with Pharaoh, Egypt with her gods and kings, and those who trust in Pharaoh."
