VASU, thou most youthful Deva, Bhārata, Agni, bring us wealth, Excellent, splendid, much-desired.
Let no malignity prevail against us, either Deva's or man's.
Save us from this and enmity.
So through thy favou. May we force through all our enemies a way, as ’twere through streaming water-floods.
Thou, Purifier Agni, high shinest forth, bright, adorable, when worshipped with the sacred oil.
Ours art thou, Agni, Bhārata, honoured by us with barren cows, with bullocks and with kine in calf
Wood-fed, bedewed with sacred oil, ancient, invoker, excellent, the Son of Strength, the Wonderful.
