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


A prayer for peace and concord

1Give us agreement with our own, with strangers give us unity:
  Do ye, O Asvins, in this place join us in sympathy and love.
2May we agree in mind, agree in purpose: let us not fight against
   the heavenly spirit.
  Around us rise no din of frequent slaughter, nor Indra's arrow
   fly, for day is present!
