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


  I. For thou, O Indra, art the God whom hymns and praises
  Thou blessest those who worship thee.
2Bay horses with their long manes bring Indra to drink the
  Soma juice,
  The Bountiful to our sacrifice.
3With waters' foam thou torest off, Indra, the head of Namuchi,
  Subduing all contending hosts.
4The Dasyus, when they fain would climb by magic arts and
   mount to heaven,
  Thou, Indra, castest down to earth.
5As Soma-drinker conquering all, thou scatteredst to every side
  Their band who poured no gifts to thee.
