Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, [1895], at


A prayer to Indra for riches

1He who controls this air and men who aid his strength, and
   wood, and heaven, the lofty seat which Indra loves.
2The bold whose overpowering might the boldest never hath
   defied,— p. a215
  As erst still, unassailable is Indra's wrath, and fame, and force.
3May he bestow on us that wealth, far-spreading, bright with
   yellow hue.
  Indra is mightiest Lord among the folk.
