Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, [1895], at


A prayer for the success and prosperity of a King

1The sacrifice is victor, Agni victor, victorious is Soma, Indra
  So will we bring oblation unto Agni, this sacrifice that I may
   win all battles.
9Praise to you, Mitra-Varupa, hymn-singers! Here swell with
   meath dominion blest with children.
  Far into distant regions drive Destruction, and even from
   committed sin absolve us.
3In this strong hero be ye glad and joyful: cleave ye to him even
   as ye cleave to Indra.
  Victorious, kine-winner, thunder-wielder, who quells a host and
   with his might destroys it.
