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


1In Soma's ecstasy Indra spread the firmament and realms of
  When he cleft Vala limb from limb.
2Showing the hidden he draye forth the cows for the Angirases,
  And Vala he cast headlong down.
3By Indra were the luminous realms of heaven established and
  Firm and immovable in their place.
4Indra, thy laud moves quickly like a joyous wave of water-floods.
  Bright shine the drops that gladden thee.
