Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1Whatever sacrifice that man performeth with voice, mind, sacred

3Let the two Sovrans, swift to come, like falcons swooping on
Destroy the butter of the foe whoever plots to injure us.
4I seize thine arms and draw them back, I bind a bandage on thy
I with the anger of the God Agni have killed thy sacrifice. p. a300
5Behind thy back I tie thine arms, I bind a bandage on thy
With the terrific Agni's wrath have I destroyed thy sacrifice.
