    MR (Pyramid) Text Study Utterances 39-43

    From Faulkner:

    Ritual of Offering; the preliminary repast

    Utterance 39
    O King, take the Eye of Horus for which he goes; I bring it to you and I put it in your mouth for you - zrw of Upper Egypt and zrw of Lower Egypt

    Utterance 40
    O King, take the sik of Osiris - sik

    Utterance 41

    Take the tip of Horus' own breast, take what is for your mouth - milk I jar

    Utterance 42

    Take the breast of your own sister Isis the milk-provider? which you shall take to your mouth - an empty mnz jar

    Utterance 43

    Take the two Eyes of Horus, the black and the white; take them to your forehead and they may illumine your face - the lifting up of a white jar and a black jar

    I. Var. "a h3ts jar of white mnw stone the right eye a h jar of black mnw stone the left eye'

    Lexicon

    Horus = Heru = HRW
    Osiris = Ausar = WSR
    Isis = Auset = WST
    zrw = ZRW = plural of "butter" or resin ZR, resin, two different resins, from the South and from the North
    resin is a hydrocarbon secretion of many plants
    [​IMG]
    sik = ShYK = shik = beer TEARS fermented cake rum cake yeast
    mnw = MNW = menu = stable, stone and ceremonial
    h3ts = HhTS = hathes = pot - white and black - right and left - RH and DjHWTY - "knowledge and wisdom"
    mnz = MNS-H = menza = jar



    Throughout the utterances we have analyzed thus far, incense has been attributed to the Eye(s) of HRW or the WDJT (Udjat). In this sense, the ZRW of Upper and Lower or Southern and Lower HPY / Nile represents the resin, South and North representing the HRW and ST, or the King vs. Foreigners. Unification of South and North represents diplomacy. Resin is a gel or syrup like hydrocarbon secretion of many plants from which the incense is made of. The ShYK or shik of WSR represents fermentation, since one of the primary duties of people in the industry of WSR is agriculture, grain production, bread making and alcohol brewing. In this case the alcohol of the society was a beer made of barley, and the agent for the production of the beer was yeast from fermentation of the barley grain or bread. So a fermented bread or beer was used as the "SHyK/shik" in this instance. The word MNW or menu means stable and was used as an adjective for objects and vessels made of special stone. The milk in the jug symbolized HRW or the Child who is the CREAM, and the empty jar symbolizes WST who is the VESSEL through which the CREAM came through and left. Milk from the breast of the MALE HRW in this instance is SYMBOLIC to the living heir or King HRW making a commitment to give his Life of Cream in the service of perpetuating the legacy of his parents and ancestors, WSR and WST. In this segment of utterances, we have the representations of Man, Woman and Child, in the various artifacts of WSR, WST and HRW. Man for agriculture, Woman for hospitality (vessels, homemaker), and Child for nutrition and prosperity (cream/milk). The white and black pots of HRW, called the HhTS (hathes) represent the contrasts of day and night, or light and dark, in the realms of the day form of the Sun RH, and the night form of light reflected of the Moon, DjHWTY (Djehuty). Possession of these polar opposites instills in the initiate or those observing the initiate and or actual funeral, a value of being the All Eye Seeing; meaning being aware, and acknowledging that awareness while awake or at rest, and to show that a Successful Man through his resources, the extensions of his Self, can maintain tabs or be in the state of "knowing every square inch" of his realm, day and night, and know how to synthesize or breakdown elements in his Kingdom to promote the kingdoms growth and stability.

    Peace.
