Book of the Dead Chapter 5

This occurs among funerary compositions written on the walls of early Middle Kingdom coffins ('Coffin Texts', number 431) A broken version occurs in the papyrus Hannover Kestner Museum 1970.37:

tm irt kAt m Xrt-nTr
ink aaf wrd pr m wnw
anx m bskw ianw

For not doing work in the necropolis
I am the searcher for the weary one, emerging from Wenu,
who lives on the entrails of the baboons
