Even the Egyptian “Book of the Dead” recounts the confession of the deceased before his judges of the other world, testifying that the Egyptian professed care for animals. He says: “I have not hunted animals hiding behind bushes. I caught the birds of the gods “.
We find that “Hymn to the Sun” of Pharaoh Amenophis IV was certainly an inspiration for the Psalm 104 from the Bible: “How many are your works, LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number— living things both large and small.”
“All creatures look to you to give them their food at the proper time. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things. When you hide your face, they are terrified; when you take away their breath, they die and return to the dust. When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground.” (Psalm 104, 22-30).
