Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1The debt which I incur, not gaming, Agni! and, not intending
to repay, acknowledge, p. a256
That may Vaisvānara, the best, our sovran, carry away into the
world of virtue.
2I cause Vaisvānara to know, confessing the debt whose payment
to the Gods is promised.
He knows to tear asunder all these nooses: so may we dwell
with him the gentle-minded.
3Vaisvānara the Purifier purge me when I oppose their hope and
break my promise,
Unknowing in my heart. With supplication, whatever guilt there
is in that, I banish.
