The Victorious King (Tuthmosis III)


The Victorious King (Tuthmosis III)

I have come that I may cause you to trample on the great ones of Djahi,
That I may spread them out under your feet throughout their lands'
that I may cause them to see Your Majesty as lord of sunrays
When you shine in their faces in the likeness of me.


I have come that I may cause you to trample on the dwellers in Asia
And to smite the heads of the Amu of Retjnu;
That I may cause them to see Your Majesty equipped in your panoply
When you take weapons of warfare in the Chariot.

I have come that I may cause you to trample on the eastern land
And to tread down those who are in the regions of Tonuter;
That I may cause them to see Your Majesty as a lightning flash,
Strewing its levin-falme and giving its food of water.

I have come that, I may cause you to trample on the western land,
Crete and Cyprus being possessed with the awe of you;
That I may cause them to see Your Majesty as a young bull,
Firm of heart and sharp of horn, whom none can tackle.

I have come that I may cause you to trample on the Islanders,
The lands of Mitanni trembling through fear of you;
That I may cause them to see Your Majesty as a crocodile,
Lord of fear in the waters, who cannot be approached.

I have come that I may cause you to trample on the islanders
In the midst of the sea, who are possessed with your war shout;
That I may cause them to see Your Majesty as the Protector
Who appears on the back of his wild bull.

I have come that I may cause you to trample on Libya
And the isles of Utjena through the power of your might;
That I may cause them to see Your Majesty as a fierce lion
When you make them into corpses throughout their valleys.

I have come that I may cause you to trample on the uttermost parts of the earth,
What the Ocean encircles being held in your grasp;
That I may cause them to see Your Majesty as lord of the falcon-wings
Who takes what he sees at will.

I have come that I may cause you to trample on those who are in the Southland
And to bind the Sand-dwellers as captives;
That I may cause them to see Your Majesty as a jackal of Upper Egypt,
The lord of speed, the runner who courses through the Two Lands.

I have come that I may cause you to trample on the Nubians,
As far as Shat being in your grasp
That I may cause them to see Your Majesty as your Two Brothers,
For I have joined together their hands for you in victory.

(From a Stele in the temple of Amun-Re at Karnak)
