Priest of MemphisPrinces of Memphis. High Priest of Ptah - Isaiah 19
"Surely the princes of Zoan have become fools. The princes of Noph (Memphis) are deceived; they have also deluded Egypt. Pharaoh’s wise counselors give foolish counsel. How do you say to Pharaoh, “I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings? Where are your wise men? Let them tell you now, And let them know what the Lord of hosts has purposed against Egypt.” – Isaiah 19

In this passage of scripture Isaiah describes “Pharaoh’s wise counselors” as being foolish princes. The word prince signifies a title of royalty or a group of people that are highly regarded by the Pharaoh. Ancient Egyptian records document these foolish counselors to be high priests. They were commonly referred to as the High Priests of Memphis and/or the High Priests of Ptah…“Pharaoh’s wise men. The sorcerers the magicians” – Exodus 7

“His Majesty (Pharaoh) appointed me as High Priest of Memphis alone. The temple of Ptah south-of-his-Wall. Every place was under my charge” – Ancient Records of Egypt [1]

“Seek out for me a son or yours who is wise. Then they said before his majesty (Pharaoh) life, prosperity, and health! “A great lector-priest of *Bastet. O sovereign, our Lord, whose name is Nefer-rohu. Come, pray, Nefer-rohu, my friend, that thou may say to me a few fine words or choice speeches, at the hearing of which my majesty may be entertained!” – Egyptian Prophecy of Nefer-Rohu [2]

*Bastet is a feline goddess of ancient Egypt. The city of Bubastis is where her cult originated from. In Egyptian the town is transliterated as Per-Bast. In Hebrew as Pi Beseth.

“And Memphis shall be in distress daily. The young men of Pi Beseth shall fall by the sword. Thus I will execute judgments on Egypt, Then they shall know that I am the Lord” – Ezekiel 30

Priest of Memphis Funeral Stone Fragment from Egypt
The surviving hieroglyphic inscription on this funerary stela (pictured top right) gives the name and titles of Horiraa, an important priest of Ptah at Memphis. The name of his mother is lost but its female determinative can be seen on the right side of the last line. The hieroglyphs are clearly carved and filled with black pigment so that they stand out from the white stone. – British Museum

Herodotus and the Priests of Memphis
In addition to the Egyptian testimonies the historian Herodotus (484-414 BC) also recorded personal encounters with the priests (princes) of Memphis. Herodotus documented Pharaoh’s priests being brutally beaten for their idolatry and worship of pagan gods by Cambyses. The story is very similar to what happened in the Bible with Elijah and the pagan prophets of Baal. (1 Kings 18:40)

The priests of Hephaistos at Memphis. I heard also other things at Memphis when I discussed stories with the priests of Hephaistos” Herodotus [3]

“When the priests had brought Apis (A bull ; pagan Egyptian god), Cambyses being somewhat affected with madness drew his dagger, and aiming at the belly of Apis, struck his thigh. Then he laughed and said to the priests “O you wretched creatures, are gods born such as this, with blood and flesh, and sensible of the stroke of iron weapons? Worthy indeed of Egyptians is such a god as this. You however at least shall not escape without punishment for making a mock of me. He then ordered the priests to be beaten without mercy and put to death.” – Herodotus [3]
