Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1O Indra, give us wisdom as a sire gives wisdom to his sons.
Guide us, O Much-invoked, on this our foray: may we, living,
still enjoy the light.
2Grant that no mighty foes, unknown, malevolent, unhallowed,
tread us to the ground.
With thine assistance, Hero! may we pass through all the waters
that are rushing down.
