Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1Whatever wrong we wittingly or in our ignorance have done,
Do ye deliver us therefrom, O all ye Gods, of one accord.
2If I, a sinner, when awake or sleeping have committed sin,
Free me therefrom as from a stake, from present and from
3As one unfastened from a stake, or cleansed by bathing after
As butter which the sieve hath cleansed, so all shall purge me
from the sin.
