Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1What food I eat of varied form and nature, food whether gold,
or horse, sheep, goat, or bullock,
Whatever gift I have received, may Agni the Hotar make it
2Whatever, sacrificed or not, hath reached me, bestowed by men
and sanctioned by the Fathers,
Whereby my heart seems to leap up, may Agni the Hotar make
that sacrifice well-offered.
3What food I eat unjustly, Gods! or, doubtful between bestow-
ing and refusing, swallow,
Through greatness of Vaisvānara the mighty may that same food
be sweet to me and blessed!
