The Loyalist Instruction from the Sehetepibre Stela
I have something important to say; I shall have you hear it, and I shall let you know it: the design for eternity, a way / of life as it should be and of passing a lifetime at peace.
Adore the king, Nymaatre, living forever, in your innermost parts. Place His Majesty in friendly fashion in your thoughts.
He is perception, which is in (all) hearts, and his eyes piece through every being.
He is Re, by whose rays one sees, for he is one who illumines the Two Lands more than the sun disk.
he is one who makes (the land) green, even more than a high inundation: he has filled the Two Lands with victory and life.
Nostrils are cool when he starts to rage, but when he sets in peace, one can breathe the air (again).
He gives nourishment to those in his circle, and he feeds the one who sticks to / his path.
The king is Ka.
His utterance is Abundance.
The one whom he brought up is one who will be somebody.
His is Khnum for all limbs,
The Begetter of the begotten.
He is Bastet, who protects the Two Lands.
The one who praises him will be protected by his arm.
He is Sakhmet, against those who disobey his orders, and the one with whom he disagrees will be laden with sorrow.
Fight on behalf of his name: be obeisant to his life. Be free and clear of any instance of negligence.
The one whom the king loves shall be a well provided spirit; there is no tomb for anyone who rebels against His Majesty, and his corpse shall be cast to the waters.
Do this, and your body will flourish, / and you will find it (excellent) for eternity.
