Praise to Thoth (C.J.Bleeker)

“Praised be thee, Lord of the great gods,
Possessor of the secrets that are in heaven and on earth,
Good god of eternity of old,
Who gave (us) the language and the scripture,
Who has the houses pass by inheritance,
Who founds the temples,
Who sees that the gods remain within the limits of their competence,
Each guild fulfils its obligations,
The countries know their frontiers,
And the fields their appurtenances.”

— Bleeker, C.J 1973, Hathor and Thoth: Two Key Figures of the Ancient Egyptian Religion, p. 1
