     Fain to pay worship to the Gods.
2. Together with thy pleasant juice the Atharvans have commingled milk,
     Divine, devoted to the God.
3. Bring, by thy flowing, weal to kine, weal to the people, weal to steeds.
     Weal, O thou King, to growing plants
4. Sing a praise-song to Soma brown of hue, of independent might.
     The Red, who reaches up to heaven.
5. Purify Soma when effused with stones which bands move rapidly,
     And pour the sweet milk in the meath.

     To Indra offer Indu up.

     Indu! with. Indra for ally.
