Vedic Hymns, Part II (SBE46), by Hermann Oldenberg , at sacred-texts.com
1. Let us press Soma for Gâtavedas 1. May he burn down the property of the niggard 2. May he, Agni, bring us across all troubles, across all difficulties, as across a stream with a boat.
The Rishi is Kasyapa Mârîka. Metre, Trishtubh.—Verse 1 = TÂ. X, 1.
Note 1. This is one of the very rare passages in which Agni standing alone and not accompanied by Indra or the Maruts &c. is mentioned as drinking Soma. It seems as if this verse were not composed for the regular Soma sacrifice, but for a special occasion.
Note 2. Cf. Delbrück, Syntakt. Forschungen, I, 112.
