HYMN LXXIV. Soma and SomaDeva.

HOLD fast your Godlike sway, O Soma and SomaDeva: let these our offerings quickly reach you.

Placing in every house your seven great treasures, bring blessing to our quadrupeds and bipeds.

Soma and Soma, chase to every quarter the sickness that hath visited our dwelling. Drive Nirrti away into the distance, and give us excellent and happy glories.

Provide, O Soma and SomaDeva, for our bodies all needful medicines to heal and cure us. Set free and draw away the sin committed which we have still inherent in our persons.

Armed with keen shafts and weapons, kind and loving, be gracious unto us, Soma and Soma. Release us from the noose of Indra; keep us from sorrow, in your tender loving-kindness.
