I've been searching for, but can't for the life of me find the equivalent in ancient Egyptian to the word "benedict". Tried with "blessed", "glorified", and "exalted" too to no avail.
Thanks in advance.

The 10th edition of the Concise Oxford Dictionary, which is not infallible but does have the prestige and authority of Britain's second best University behind it, does not list 'benedict' as a word, although it does have 'benediction'.
However, if relevant, the phrase 'maat hrw' (maat meaning truth or justice, hrw meaning voice) was often used to refer to deceased people whose souls were presumed after their deaths to have been pronounced worthy by a court of gods to enter the Ancient Egyptian equivalent of heaven.
