Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1With that victorious Amulet which strengthened Indra's power-
and might p. a27
Do thou, O Brāhmanaspati, increase our strength for kingly
2Subduing those who rival us, subduing all malignities,
Withstand the man who menaces, and him who seeks to injure-
3Soma and Savitar the God have strengthened and exalted thee:
All elements have aided thee, to make thee general conqueror.
4Slayer of rivals, vanquisher, may that victorious Amulet
Be bound on me for regal sway and conquest of mine enemies.
5Yon Sun hath mounted up on high, and this my word hath
That I may smite my foes and be slayer of rivals, rivalless.
6Destroyer of my rivals, strong, victorious, with royal sway,
May I be ruler of these men, and King and sovran of the folk.
