Thou shouldst say concerning him : "One having a break in his upper arm . An ailment which I will treat."


Thou shouldst place him prostrate on his back, with something folded between his two shoulder-blades ; thou shouldst spread out his shoulders, in order to stretch apart his upper arm until that break falls into its place . Thou shouldst make for him two splints of linen, (and) thou shouldst apply one of them to the inside of his arm, (and) the other of them to the underside of his arm. Thou shouldst bind it with ymrw , (and) treat afterward with honey every day until he recovers .
