"Ma'at" is the goddess of truth, justice, divine order, cosmic order and balance.
Ma'at had a set of principles, a set of laws for humans to follow.
The Kemetians/Egyptians anticipated becoming part of the cosmos when they died.
So, Ma'at laws was reasonable to them.
The Kemetans mentioned Ma'at in stories and explained how all things were beautiful when there was no injustice on earth.
Ma'at was said to have withdrawn to the heavens because she was grieved by the wicked behavior of humans.
Sustaining life is priority.
It's the first Order.
Ma'at distanced and shielded the earth to preserve human life.
Protect and preserve life whenever you can.
Work together for the life of all.
Ma'at's spirit of harmony infused the creation.
She caused the world to operate together and rationally to benefit all life.
Humans should work together in the same way, and care for everything living.
Balance your judgements like Ma'at.
Tilt your judgements in degrees that will benefit life for all.
Ma'at decreed it; what comes around, goes around. So judge righteously.
Tilt you judgements towards righteousness and truth.
All life is valuable. And that includes the birds, bees, flowers, and trees.
How will you breathe if you kill all the trees?
The "Sun of Righteousness" bears witness to this truth.
Ma'at desire all life to excel under the Sun.
Speak and seek the Truth in all things.
Where you stand may affect your view in judgements.
"Ma'at" requires a consideration in all of the views to preserve life for all.
Truth is divine.
Divine Justice protects all life.
Humankind is expected to pursue divine justice.
"Ma'at" ordered protection so humans could enjoy the righteousness of the Sun.
Humans should do likewise to protect all life on earth. It prevents chaos.
Ma'at can be traced as far back as the Old Kingdom ( c. 2613 - 2181 BCE ).
The Kemetic/Egyptian myths of a golden age included a period when Ma'at was ruler of earth.
Moses was raised in the House of the African Pharaoh as a grandson, and was educated in "All The "Wisdom" Of Kemet/ Egypt.
Moses was "Powerful in Speech and Action", and he knew the influence that She "Ma'at" had on the "Hearts of Pharaohs".
The Hebrews did not want to recognize or respect the African feminine attributes of a divine heavenly goddess, or goddesses ruling beside their male counterparts. This is also why there were male angels, but no female angels that came down from heaven in the Torah/Old Testament
The writer of Exodus 9:12 understood the issues, and the beliefs of the African Kemet/Egypt people, that the heart was weighed against the "Feather of Ma'at", which represented truth during judgement.
If the heart was found to be lighter or equal in weight to the "Feather of Ma'at, the deceased had led a virtuous life.
A hardened heart would be heavy in weight, not balancing the scales with Ma'at's "Feather Of Truth" and prevent a Pharaoh from obtaining eternal life.
Most Pharoahs were referred to as "Beloved of Ma'at".
Pharaohs would carry an effigy of Ma'at seated as a sign that he represented her regime.
Sometimes she is depicted with wings of a vulture "her special animal", and the feather of truth in her headdress. She also carries an ankh "the key of life", and sometimes a scepter.
Joining Ma'at in the "Duat" became a euphemism for dying.
Ma'at's mortuary role is best known to people today. She "Weighs the Heart of the Soul" with her white feather of truth.
