Brother AACOOLDRE : Did the OT/NT steal the Egyptian Balance Scales

By Andre Austin

The ancient Egyptians used the Dog jackal Anubis to help weigh and report what a soul’s heart (deeds) or tongue had done on balance scales with a feather of truth (rightness, Tefnut, Maat).

It’s my aim to show that this philosophy was originally rejected as the Tree of Good/Evil was touched on and appreciated in the book of proverbs and the Book of Revelations.

The first business is to report the widely accepted findings that many parts of Proverbs are based on the Egyptian Maxims of Pharaoh Amenemope (Amenhotep III).

For example Amenemope Chapter 17 once said:

“make not for yourself a measure of two capacities” compare with Proverbs 20:23 “divers weights are an abomination unto the lord and a false balance is”.

PROVERBS 24: 12-23

“…does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?

Does not he who guards your life know it?

Will he not repay each person according to what he has done…?

To show partiality in judging is not good”.

First of all this is typological linked with Revelations 20:11-15 with the same phrase as Proverbs 24:12 “the dead were judged according to what they had done…”

I have stated in previous essays this is how Emperor Domitian plays the role of Anubis.

When Plutarch wrote of Anubis he said in Isis & Osiris:

A. “He (Anubis) distinguishes (Judge) between what is friendly and what is hostile” p.29

B. Anubis Guards and protect p.39

C. Known for precise vision or perception of eyes in the day or night p.107

Both A, B were part of the context of Proverbs Chapter 24.

Anubis is depicted at the scene in the middle of the balance scales, just like a judge in the middle between a prosecutor and defendant, of the weighing of the heart. He weighs the heart & Tongue (words). If we back up to Proverbs 18 we can see the tree of Good/Evil’s fruit:

“From the fruit of his mouth a man’s stomach is filled;

With the harvest from his lips he is satisfied

The Tongue has the power of Life and death,

And those who love it will eat its fruit”. Now where have we heard this similar language before?

In Genesis 2:16 ; Gen 3:3 and Matthew Chapter 12 where a man words can acquit or condemn you which is legal terms we use in courts of law today. Matthew chapter 12:31-37 also incorporates many of the themes of the weighing of the heart in ancient Egypt. The fruit was Tefnut, the lady goddess of truth and Justice in ancient Egypt.

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life” (Proverbs 11:30) Now this is important because righteousness in Egypt is an adjective of Maat. Shu is the tree of life and sometimes hold the feather of truth. Shu twin is Tefnut (Tree of knowledge), blind folded holding up the Balance scale of Maat.

Tefnut Literally translating as "That Water” This sounds similar to “Understanding is a fountain of life to those who have it” (Proverbs 16:22) Especially when we put into context other Egyptian texts. For example:

More powerful evidence links the Tree of knowledge of good/evil is from Egyptian Maat. Egyptian scribes write:

"Homage to you, O ye Gods, who dwell in the Hall of the Maati goddesses (Tefnut was female Twin to Shu), who are without evil in your bodies, and live upon right and truth, and who feed yourselves upon right and truth" (Egyptian Ideas of the Afterlife By EA Wallis Budge p.150-151. The OT scribes couldn't of been talking about anything else but the fruit of Egyptian Maat. Additionally when hunger gets to Osiris "His hunger is with Shu, his thirst is with Tefnut" that Lukewarm water talked about in Rev 3:16 see Osiris & The Egyptian Resurrection Volume 1. p.131 By EA Wallis Budge.

Anubis is in the middle getting an accurate reading to make sure the heart is either balanced or not.

“The Lord abhors dishonest scales but accurate weights are his delight” (Proverbs 11:1)
