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


1Drink of the juice which men have washed in waters and fill the-
   full, O Lord of tawny horses.
  O Indra, hearer of the laud, with Soma which stones have mix-
   ed for thee enhance thy rapture.
2To make thee start, a strong true draught I offer to thee the
  Bull, O thou whom bay steeds carry.
  Here take delight, O Indra, in our voices while thou art hymned
   with power and all our spirit. p. 290
3O mighty Indra, through thine aid, thy prowess, obtaining life,
   zealous, and skilled in worship.
  Men in the house who share the sacred banquet stand singing
   praise that brings them store of children.
