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


A prayer for delivery from sin and sickness

1Scatter and drive away, Soma and Rudra, the sickness that hath
   come within our dwelling, p. a287
  Afar into the distance chase Destruction, and even from commit-
   ted sin release us.
2Lay on our bodies, O ye twain, O Soma and Rudra, all those
   balms that heal diseases.
  Set free and draw away the sin committed, which we have still
   inherent in our persons.
