Chapter 14 of The Chapters of Coming Out by Day is one of the most important and valuable, since it conveys the essence of the teaching that the blessed spirit of the deceased needs to know. Like many other parts of the book, this chapter was written by the priests of ON (Annu) and so reflects their views on the nature of the gods. The title of the chapter makes it clear that the knowledge expounded therein was very useful for a human being in earthly life as well. The text begins like this:
"I am the ascending god Tem. I am the Sole God. I acquired life in Nun. I am Ra who appeared at the beginning of beginnings, ruler of what I have created." (See Appendix 17).
