Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1If we have sinned with both our hands, desiring to take the host
of dice for our possession,
May both Apsarases to-day forgive us that debt, the fiercely-
2Stern viewers of their sins who rule the people, forgive us what
hash happened as we gambled.
Not urging us to pay the debt we owed him, he with a cord
hath gone to Yama's kingdom.
3My creditor, the man whose wife I visit, he, Gods! whom I
approach with supplication,
Let not these men dominate me in speaking. Mind this, ye two
Apsarases, Gods' Consorts!
