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


A charm to effect the removal of an enemy

1Forth from his dwelling drive that man, the foeman who
   assaileth us:
  Through the Expellent sacrifice hath Indra rent and mangled
2Indra, Foe-Slayer, drive him forth into the distance most
  Whence never more shall be return in all the years that are to
3To the three distances, beyond mankind's Five Races, let him go,
  Beyond the three skies let him go, whence he shall never come-
  In all the years that are to be, long as the Sun is in the heaven.
