Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1Hitherward, having yoked his steeds, came Imprecation,
Seeking my curser, as a wolf the home of one who owneth sheep.
2Avoid us, Imprecation! as consuming fire avoids the lake.
Smite thou the man who curses us, as the sky's lightning strikes
3Who curses us, himself uncursed, or, cursed, who curses us
Him cast I as a sop to Death, as to a dog one throws a bone.
