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


A charm for a prince's prosperity

1I free thee from the cord, I loose the bond, I loose the fastening.
  Even here, perpetual, Agni, wax thou strong. p. a305
2I with celestial prayer appoint thee, Agni, maintainer of this
   man in princely powers.
  Here brightly shine for us with wealth: declare thou to Gods
   this favoured giver of oblations.
