Amarna tablets: Letter from Labayu of Shechem
Letter from Labayu of ShechemTo the king, my Lord and my God and Sun, thus speaks Labayu, your servant, the dust under your feet. At the feet of the king, my Lord and my God and Sun, seven times and seven times I prostrate myself.
I have heard the words that the king wrote to me and who I am
that the king lose his land through my fault? I am the
servant of the king, and I have not rebelled and I have
not sinned, and I do not retain my tribute, and I do not
disregard the demands of his commissioner.
They defame to me with ill will, but may the king, my Lord,
not accuse me of revolting!
 Ruler of Gezer
