Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1With butter, in his hall v4here fire is burning, perform that sacri-
fice which quells the goblins.
Burn from afar against the demons Agni! Afflict not in thy fury
us who praise thee.
2Let Rudra break your necks, O ye Pisāchas, and split your ribs
Your herb of universal power with Yama hath allied itself.
3Here, Mitra-Varuna! may we dwell safely: with splendour drive
the greedy demons backward,
Let them not find a surety or a refuge, but torn away go down
to Death together.
