Excerpt from a Stele Honoring Bes

You protect me against all the wild beasts of the desert,
All the crocodiles of the river,
All the snakes and scorpions,
All the insects that bite with their mandibles and sting with their tail,
All the kinds of reptiles that attack in their caves. – On stela showing a young Horus protected by the face of Bes
