Im looking for an english version of this. For anybody who doesnt know what it is a "Inscription, West wall of the tomb of Ay, Tell el-Amarna". I have found 2 sites with a completly diffrent translation to the other. I also have the transcribed version, but somebody would need to translate it for me.

This one seems to be more likely to be right, to me. It's quoted from Lichtheim, so it's from a reliable source, but it would seem like that's only an excerpt of the full hymn. See TourEgypt for the fuller version. You can see by reading them both that they're worded slightly different, but the meaning is basically the same. Wink
