Keeper of the Scales, The

Spell 22
The Keeper of the Scales touches the mouth of [name][*] to give him the power of speech:

I have not defrauded the gods of their cake-offerings. I have not carried off the fenkhu cakes offered to the Spirits. I have not committed fornication. I have not masturbated in the sanctuaries of the god of my city. I have not diminished from the bushel.

[The Egyptian Book of the Dead, trans. E. A. Wallis Budge, p. 51]
