Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1Sin of the Mind, avaunt! begone! Why sayest thou what none
Go hence away, I love thee not. Go to the forests and the trees.
My heart is in our homes and cows.
2Whatever wrong we have committed, sleeping or waking, by
ill-wish, dislike, or slander,
All these offences, which deserve displeasure, may Agni take
from us and keep them distant.
3Indra and Brāhmanaspati! whatever foolish deed we plan,
May provident Angirasa preserve us from the sin and woe.
