And when we were grown, the King said to the Queen, ‘I will marry Na.nefer.ka.ptah to the daughter of a general, and Ahura to the son of another general.’ And the Queen said, ‘No; he is the heir, let him marry his sister, like the heir of a king; none other is fit for him.’ And the King said, ‘That is not fair; they had better be married to the children of the general.’
“And the Queen said, ‘It is you who are not dealing rightly with me.’ And the King answered, ‘If I have no more than these two children, is it right that they should marry one another? I will marry Na.nefer.ka.ptah to the daughter of an officer, and Ahura to the son of another o

He looked beneath the door of the stable; he saw the feet of his elder brother; he was standing behind the door, and his knife was in his hand. He cast down his load to the ground, and betook himself to flee swiftly; and his elder brother pursued after him with his knife.
