First, there was only Nun, the dark waters of chaos. One day a hill rose from the water. It was called Ben-Ben. On the hill was Atum, the first god. Atum coughed and spat out Shu and Tefnut. Shu and Tefnut had two children: Geb and Nut. Shu lifted up Nut to form a canopy on Geb. Nut and Geb had four children: Isis, Osiris, Seth, and Nephthys. Osiris was the king of the earth, and Isis was the queen. They ruled the Earth for many years. Seth grew jealous and finally killed Osiris. Osiris went to the underworld and Seth became king. Osiris and Isis had a son named Horus. He battled Seth and regained the throne. Then, Horus became ruler of the Earth and Osiris became ruler of the underworld.
