Cartouche: ''Moses'' (in original Egyptian)
Hover over glyph for xlit & xlatn
3 jackal pelts = ''M▫s'' (as in MOS[es] and [Ra]MES[es]) door-bolt = ''z''


Transliterated into Hebrew from the ancient Egyptian, this name thereafter developed into the Hebrew name:
Pronunciation Table Hear it! and, still later, Hellenized in LXX as Μωσης, which was finally Anglicized to "Moses." — as also in Tut-moses – the family in which "Moses" was raised and, surely, from which he obtained this Egyptian family and Pharaonic name.

The verb, , back-developed from the name.

Unlike "play glyphs" that merely spell phonetically, this adaptation of the Ah-moses cartouche, read top to bottom, "moses"; more accurately, m▫s▫z (there's no capitalization in glyphs). Glyph vowels are uncertain. Egyptologists back-redact many vowels from the way they were transliterated into other languages on the Rosetta Stone and other sources – simply guessing where that fails (e.g., Tut-moses vs Rameses).

''m▫s'' (3 jackal pelts)
    The 3 jackal pelts represented the 3 after-death essentials of Anubis, the jackal-god (because jackals frequented tombs):
  1. mummification,

  2. weighing the heart and

  3. conducting the soul to celestial "Two Lands" (Upper and Lower celestial Egypt) of the celestial Nile (known today as the "Milky Way").

Syncretisms in Hellenism

Later, in Hellenism, this evolved into 3 days culminating in resurrection & rebirth; and the victory of Osiris over Anubis evolved into the victory of Christ over Sâ•tân, the angel of death.

Moses – named by Hebrews? Or An Egyptian?

In ancient times, due to the high mortality rate of newborns, Hebrew parents didn't name their babies until after they had survived 30 days, at which time, tradition held, the baby acquired a nëphësh to be named (a tradition that still continues among some Jews today).

This was certainly longer than Amᵊrâm and Yo•khëvëd could keep their baby secret from the Egyptians. Babies make noise announcing their presence. This, too, strongly suggests that Amᵊrâm and Yo•khëvëd were forced to place the baby in a basket in the Nile within a few days – and never named this baby in Hebrew.

No one seems to have noted – ever – that Scripture explicitly states that "M▫s▫z" was named not by his Hebrew parents Amᵊrâm and Yo•khëvëd, but by the Egyptian – and Egyptian speaking – princess, daughter of the Par•oh, who "drew him from the waters" of the Nile.

She called his name incarnate, as she said, 'For I drew him from the water.'
(Shᵊm•ot 2.10)

Both mean this Hebrew baby was given an Egyptian, not Hebrew, name: m▫s▫z – as in Ra-m▫s▫z (Hellenized and Anglicized to "Ra-meses"), Ah-m▫s▫z (Hellenized and Anglicized to "Ah-moses") and Tut-moses-m▫s▫z (Hellenized and Anglicized to "Tut-moses") meaning (in Egyptian) "incarnate" or "reborn." Shem named him m▫s▫z because she "drew him from the waters" of the Nile exactly as Isis drew Hōrus from the waters of the Nile!

Princess Daughter – Setting Herself Up as goddess Isis

Members of the Pharaonic family viewed themselves as incarnates of Egyptian gods.

According to the Biblical narrative, "moses" was "drawn from the waters" of the Nile, by a 12-year old Egyptian princess after being placed there by his Hebrew sister, at the direction of his Hebrew parents, to save his life. This was ca. B.C.E. 1547 and the 12 year old Egyptian princess at that time was the extraordinarily famous, and mysterious, Khât-shepset.

What would make Moshëh's parents think that the Egyptians would save an Israeli baby boy, whom they loathed as an inferior, from the reeds of the Nile?

Every member of the princess' Pharaonic royal family viewed themselves as embodiments of an Egyptian deity. She regarded herself as the embodiment of the Egyptian goddess Isis. According to the Egyptian religion, Isis—therefore, so, too, must the princess—recovered her son, the Egyptian god Hōrus, from the papyrus reeds along the Nile.

Biblical Precedent For Egyptian Name: Yo•seiph

Ta•na"kh confirms that when Hebrews lived in the Egyptian Diaspora they went by an Egyptian name. Centuries earlier (ca. BCE 1,913) Yo•seiph was known in Egypt by his Diaspora name, transliterated (and perhaps somewhat interpreted) into Hebrew as: Tzâ•phᵊnat Pa•ᵊneiakh (bᵊ-Reish•it 41.45).

The Hebrew tradition was to not consider a baby viable until it was 30 days old, at which time it was named. Scholars who associate his name with the Hebrew verb admit that it is of unknown origin. Ergo, according to the Bible account, it was the 12 year old Egyptian Pharaonic princess who named moses!

The Genius of Princess Khât-shepset

According to what practice would an Egyptian princess name her foundling, whom she claimed as her god-son (and son of god), Hōrus? Everyone in the Pharaoh's family was considered the embodiment of an Egyptian god. This embodiment of an Egyptian deity was stipulated in the Pharaonic name, which took the form "god-name-incarnate"—in Egyptian, "god-name-moses"!!! Thus, we immediately recognize the name of several pharaohs; e.g., Tut-moses. Similarly, the title Princess Khât-shepset would have given her foundling was certainly "god Hōrus-incarnate"—in Egyptian, god Hōrus-moses!!! The Hebrews, of course, refused to perpetuate the name of the idol-god, leaving us with simply "moses"—meaning "incarnate" in Egyptian.

The Egyptian Isis-Hōrus Mythology

The Nile delta was where the Egyptians believed Isis had hidden among the bulrushes with her man-god son, Hōrus. Egyptian royalty regarded themselves as diety.

When Princess Khât-shepset saw the baby in the basket woven of bulrushes she saw in this confirmation of her own diety and destiny as Par•oh of all Egypt. She must have recognized the similarity and thought "I am Isis-incarnate who has found Hōrus-incarnate: Hōrus-moses! And it was this association that A•mᵊr•âm and Yo•khëvëd had counted on. (The Nᵊtzâr•im Newsletter," 96.01, based on the BBC video documentary The Great Pyramid, Gateway to the Stars, BBC, 1994).

Khât-shepset appended to her beloved divine Hōrus-foundling the royal name patterned in her father's house—the Egyptian deity's name appended by moses.

The Greater Genius of Yo•khëvëd – and Plan of --

Having lived among the Egyptians all of her life, Yo•khëvëd, the mother of Moshëh, knew the Egyptian princess' belief and, to save her son's life, planted Moshëh in a basket among the papyri in the water, among the papyri reeds, on the shore of the Nile where Princess Khât-shepset tended to her personal bathroom needs each morning.

As Yo•khëvëd had desperately risked everything, seeing the baby in the Nile, Princess Khât-shepset interpreted the infant to be Hōrus, confirming her own claims of divinity—and, as a byproduct, assigned Egyptian divinity to the infant as a god in the process.

Pharaonic Name: Hōrus-Moses

Whether as sincere belief or shrewd politics already at age 12 (or at her father's direction), she claimed the baby was Hōrus-Moses, insinuating herself, the rescuer of Hōrus-Moses, to be the most powerful goddess: Isis.

Egyptian Personal Name: Sen-en-mut

But Hōrus-moses was a Pharaonic-family title, like a last name. Just as the personal name of Tut-moses I was Ah-kheper-ka-Ra, Hōrus-moses also had an Egyptian personal name. Deducing from the records surrounding Princess Khât-shepset, only one monumental, yet otherwise mysterious and unidentified, name emerges: Sen-en-mut, who later built Khât-shepset's Mortuary Temple.

As the architect of Khât-shepset's march to the throne of Par•oh, and her power behind the throne thereafter, Sen-en-mut (Hōrus-) moses had access to all of the secrets of Egypt—including the priesthood. The name of Sen-en-mut is preserved in the burial vault beside the Temple of Khât-shepset, which is remarkable both in being empty and being similar in architectural style to the Beit ha-Mi•qᵊdâsh built centuries later in Yᵊru•shâ•layim by Shᵊlom•oh (Hellenized/dejudaized to Solomon). See the video documentary Ancient Mysteries—Queen Pharoah, The History Channel, UK.

Hōrus-moses: Prince in House of Pharaoh Tut-moses I

Moshëh was born ca. B.C.E. 1547. As the foundling of Princess Khât-shepset, he was raised as an adopted son, prince, and Egyptian fellow-deity in the palace of her father—Pharaoh Tut-moses I.

While Moshëh may be identical with Sen-en-mut, he is known in Hebrew records only as Moshëh. Tying Sen-en-mut to Moshëh, so far, depends upon the chronological match-up and the dovetailing of events.

Khât-shepset died ca. B.C.E. 1483, leaving her deposed nephew, Tut-moses III to assume the throne of Egypt. (Tut-moses II, briefly married to his sister Khât-shepset, died young and mysteriously – an necessary element of her march to rule?) While Tut-moses III probably resented Khât-shepset usurping his rightful rule as Par•oh, there is no evidence of it during her lifetime nor even for 20 years after her death.

What Terrible Event Caused Tut-moses III To Erase His Own Mother From Egyptian History?

20 years after her death, however, some event which occurred during, or as a consequence of, Khât-shepset's reign was such a black day in Egyptian history, so intolerably embarrassing to Egypt, that Tut-moses III found it necessary to erase all records about it, even defacing the memorials to his own mother, Khât-shepset. Tut-moses' anger was directed at 'moses' and his people—Israel, then known in Egyptian as the Habiru (I•vᵊr•im; Hebrews).

The Yᵊtzi•âh occurred ca. B.C.E. 1625, simultaneous with the eruption—and consequent tzunami, volcanic ash, crop failures, etc.—of Santorini (Chronology of the Tanakh, from the "Big " Live-Link). Thus, the Par•oh of the Yᵊtzi•âh was Tut-moses III, not Ra-meses – which is based on failure to recognize that the ancient Egyptian city of Pi-Tom was later renamed by Pharaoh Ra-meses after himself – long after the Yᵊtzi•âh.

Based on the story as related in the Bible, among the Hebrews , filtering out the prohibited Egyptian mythology, came to refer solely to the physical "drawn from the water" instead of the original ancient Egyptian meaning of "incarnate," intended by Princess Khât-shepset.
