Protect him and preserve him from every arrow and every impurity of this year, because it is Ra from whom you are descended.
2. O Sekhmet, You who illumine the Double Land with your flame and give the faculty of sight to all! Come toward the Living Image, the Living Falcon! Free him, preserve him from all the evil contagions of this year, so that they never hold ascendancy over him.
3. O Sekhmet, Lady of Flame, Great of Flame, Great of Terror, in fear of whom the Double Land trembles! Come toward the Living Image, the Living Falcon! Make him pass far from every fever, from every pestilence of the year, for you are his Sole Protectress!
4. O Sekhmet, with red heart toward him from whom she issues forth, when he brought her back after imploring her! Come to the Living Image! Protect him, save him, deliver him; protect him from the massacre of slaughtering spirits so that he will not die because of them.
5. O Sekhmet, Uraeus on the head of her master, who hides (i.e., protects) him with her flame! Come towards the Living Image! Liberate him, put your protection around him! Protect him from every arrow and from every pestilence of the year! Preserve him from the one who plots against him, for it is he who in his name of Ra is eternally in the sky.
6. O Sekhmet, the one who makes every eye to see, without blindness happening!Come to the Living Image, the Living Falcon! For it is Ra from whom you issue forth, it is he who is the Protected One of this year so that he will go away from . . . So that he will be preserved from every arrow, from every contagion, from every bitterness, and from every fever, because he is Heru the Offspring.
7. O Sekhmet, when you rise, the Light appears; when you go back, darkness comes! Grant that the King of Upper and Lower Egypt, the Master of the Double Land, the Son of Ra, the Lord of crowns, does not die from your arrow, and grant that your fever does not catch him, for he is the god from whom you come forth. He is Heru, the Offspring.
