1 "Thou examinest a man," : counting any one like counting things with a bushel . (For) examining (h’t , literally "measuring") is like one’s counting a certain quantity with a bushel, (or) counting something with the fingers , in order to know . It is measuring (h’t ) things with a bushel which -- one in whom an ailment is counted , like measuring (h’t ) the ailment of a man ; in order to know the action of the heart . There are canals (or vessels , mt ) in it (the heart) to every member , Now if the priests of Sekhmet or any physician put his hands (or) his fingers upon the head , upon the back of the head upon the two hands , upon the pulse , upon the two feet , he measures (h’t ) the heart, because its vessels are in the back of the head and in the pulse ; and because its pulsation is in every vessel of every member. He says "measure" (h’.t ) regarding his wound because of the vessels (mt.w ) to his head and to the back of his head and to his two feet -- his heart in order to recognize the indications which have arisen therein ; meaning to measure it in order to know that is befalling therein .
"while his wound does not
have two lips,": his wound is
narrow , not wide ; without gaping of one (lip) from the other .
"penetrating to the bone of his skull ,
(but) not having a gash": there is a gaping of the flesh ,
although --------- over the bone of his skull , without gaping of one
(lip) from the other , being narrow , not wide .
