Yaunsi 11: He opened

וַיִּפְתַח אֶת־הַפֵּתַח יָעוּנְסִי
וַיִִּפְתַח בְּלַט וַיָּבאׁ הַחֶדֶר
וַיִּפְתַח יָעוּנְסִי וַיַּרְא הָאִישׁ
וַיִּפְעַר פִּיהוּ וַיִּצְחַק

הִנֵּה יוֹשֵׁן הָאִישׁ מִוִּים־תִי
יוֹשֵׁן וְלֹא־יוֹדֵעַ וְלֹא־שֹׁמֵר

He opened the door, Yaunsi;
He opened in secret and entered the room.
He opened, Yaunsi, and saw the man—
He opened wide his mouth, and he laughed.

Behold, he sleeps, the Man from Vim-Ti;
He sleeps; and he does not know, and he does not guard.
