Vedic Hymns, Part I (SBE32), by Max Müller, , at sacred-texts.com
1. May your march be brilliant, brilliant through your protection, O Maruts, you bounteous givers, shining like snakes!
2. May that straightforward shaft of yours, O Maruts, bounteous givers, be far from us, and far the stone which you hurl!
3. Spare, O bounteous givers, the people of Trinaskanda, lift us up that we may live!
The hymn is ascribed to Agastya, the metre is Gâyatrî. None of its verses occurs in SV., VS., TS., AV.
Prof. Oldenberg conjectures kitrâ´ ûtíh, and possibly mahibhânavah for ahibhânavah. See for yâ´mah kitráh ûtî´ V, 52, 2. té yâ´man pânti; also VI, 48, 9.
