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

p. a298


A charm against imprecation and threatened evils

1With retroverted fruit hast thou, O Apāmārga, sprung and
  Hence into distance most remote drive every curse away from,
2Whatever evil we have done, whatever vile or sinful act,
  With thee, O Apāmārga, who lookest all ways, we wipe it off.
3If with the cripple we have lived, whose teeth are black and
   nails deformed,
  With thee, O Apāmārga, we wipe all that ill away from us.
