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


1O Indra, grant a happy home, a triple refuge, triply strong.
  Bestow a dwelling-place on the rich lords and me, and keep thy
   dart afar from these.
2They who with minds intent on spoil subdue the foe, boldly
   attack and smite him down.
  From these, O Indra, Bounteous Lord who lovest song, be
   closest guardian of our lives.
