HIS honouring rite whose grass is trimmed is offered swiftly to you, in Manu's wise, accordant, the rite which Indra shall carry this day to high success and glorious issue.

For at Devas’ worship they are best through vigour; they have become the strongest of the Heroes; With mighty strength, most liberal of the Princes, Chiefs of the host.

Praise those Twain Devas for powers that merit worship for bliss, the joyous.

One with his might and thunderbolt the other as a Sage stands near in troubles.

Though dames and men have waxen strong and mighty, and all the Devas selfpraised among the Heroes, Ye, Indra, have in might surpassed them, and thus were ye spread wide, O Earth and Heaven.

Righteous is he, and liberal and helpful who, Indra, brings you gifts with gladness. That bounteous man through food shall conquer faemen, and win him opulence and wealthy people.

May wealth which ye bestow in food and treasure on him who brings you gifts and offers, Wealth, Devas! which breaks the curse of those who vex us, be, Indra, e’en our own possession.

So also, Indra, may our princes have riches swift to save, with Devas to guard them. They whose great might gives victory in battles, and their triumphant glory spreads with swiftness.

Indra and IndraDeva whom we are lauding, with your heroic glory. May we, who praise the strength of what is mighty, pass dangers, as with boats we cross the waters.

Now will I sing a dear and far-extending hymn to Indra the Deva, who, mighty Governor, Eternal, as with flame, illumines both wide worlds with majesty and power.

True to Law, Indra, your chariot cometh to the banquet of the Devas, to offering, as it were home, that y. May drink.

Indra and IndraDeva, drink your fill, ye Heroes, of this invigorating sweetest hymn. This juice is shed on this trimmed grass be seated, and rejoice you.
