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

p. 307


1What newest of imploring hymns shall, then, the zealous mortal
  For have not they who laud his might and Indra-power won for
   themselves the light of heaven?
2When shall they keep the Law and praise thee mid the Gods?
  Who counts as Rishi and as sage?
  When wilt thou ever, Indra, Bounteous Lord, come nigh to
   presser's or to praiser's call?
