Hunefer Papyrus, Hall of Judgement, Seti I, 1306-1290 BC
Upper and Flipped Lower Ecliptic Asterisms
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

"I have been to the Field of Grasshoppers. I have bathed in the pool wherein the sailors of Ra bathe. I have found the Scepter of Flint in the furrow of Maat."
