The Neter Sesen (The Nesu Enderase)

The Instruction of Amenemat

By doing good one does not avoid an attack
I gave to the beggar, I raised the orphan,
I gave to those who were nothing,
like to those who were something.
But he who ate my food raised opposition, he whom I gave
my hands, used them to assail me, wearers of my fine linen
looked at me as if they were needy, those perfumed with
my myrrh {poured water while wearing it.}
