(The numbers refer to the lines of hieroglyphs.)

1.)Adoring Re-Harakhti and Thoth, the good one of the night:
Hail Atum, Khepri, who evolved on his own!
You became high, at the Height (of the primeval hill),
You swelled forth, as the Pyramidion,
from the eastern horizon-zone of the sky,
3.)As you set in the western horizon-zone of the sky,
those who are in the night and day boats (of the sun) (give you praise)-
the western ba's, the eastern ba's,
4.)As Re-Harakhti sets from life, shrine...
may his rays be on the breast of the priest Amaini and his wife, Inet-Hapi
5.)May Shu and Tefnut be content,
May Geb and Nut be content,
May Osirus and Isis be content.
May Horus be content with his Eye,
6.) May Set be content with his testicles.
May Re-Harakhti be content
7.) with vindication, while his enemy is felled for him

The standing figures are identified as priest Amaini, and his wife, the house mistress Inet-Hopi. (The translation is made possible by Anne and David Mininberg MMA - 1995)

Thoth is understood to be the one that healed both Set and Horus after their contendings, enabling them both to be 'content'. Re-Harakhti's enemy is the Apep snake, whom Set slays daily to keep him safe as he travels the solar barque. Set is regarded as the only one strong enough to get the job done.

(TOP LINE): "May Set possess his power." and thereby "May Set be content..."
