Osiris, Isis, Set and Nepthys were sons and daughters of the goddess Nut, and god Geb. Osiris was the oldest, so he became king of Egypt, and he married his sister Isis. Osiris was a good king and had the respect of everyone.
I need a plan to get him off the throne!!!
Set envying his brothers success, love from the people, and goodwill, gathered 72 conspirators to kill Osiris. The plan was to make the most beautiful coffin and throw a big party for Osiris, only inviting the 72 conspirators.
The plan was to throw the party with the best wine, greatest food, and the most beautiful women in Egypt. Set would later show Osiris the coffin and let him get inside. When he would get inside Set and the 72 conspirators would nail it shut and throw it into the river Nile.
As soon as Osiris got into the coffin the plan was set in motion, set put on the lid and nailed it shut. Isis was shocked and was put away by Set's helpers. They then proceeded to carry the coffin to the river Nile.
Seth and his companions took the coffin which had the body of Osiris and tossed it into the Nile and the God of the Nile, Hapi, carried it out into the Great Green Sea where it came ashore near a Tamarisk Tree, near Byblos.
The tree grew out branches and grew leaves and flowers to make a fit resting place for the body of the god Osiris and very soon that tree became famous throughout the land.
