Rise up from Your deep waters, Sobek!
Rise up and dismember the evil-doers!

Those who with wickedness sow suffering in giving fields of fertile goodness
Deserve not the fruiting joys of prosperous life.
Those who enthrone wickedness in the seat of their hearts in defiance of Ma’at
Deserve not the seat of their soul intact.

Mighty One Who art Brother and Executor of Justice, visit justice upon them!
They have waded out into Your sacred waters,
Who disturb and desecrate,
— And know not the strength of Your jaws,
With teeth like the swords of unnumbered armies
That fall upon isfet with fury
— And know not the power of Your sight
With eyes like burning arrows of the sun
That fall upon isfet with fury

Rise up from Your deep waters, Sobek!
Rise up and dismember the evil-doers!

Woe to they who have shown dishonor to the honorable
Woe to they who have repaid love with harm
Woe to they who have raised a hand to the unblemished
Woe to they who have rewarded the virtuous with vice

Hear my plea, Lord of Bakhu
I have come to You with clean hands and a clean heart

Rise up from Your deep waters, Sobek!
Rise up and dismember the evil-doers!

Hear my plea, Lord of Terror
I have come to You with clean hands and a clean heart

Rise up from Your deep waters, Sobek!
Rise up and dismember the evil-doers!

Hear my plea, Lord of Mercy
I have come to You with clean hands and a clean heart

Rise up from Your deep waters, Sobek!
Rise up and dismember the evil-doers!

I prostrate myself at Your feet, Avenger
I have come to You with clean hands and a clean heart
