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

p. a288


A charm against jealousy

1Brought hitherward from Sindhu, from a folk of every mingled
  Fetched from afar, thou art I deem, a balm that cureth.
2As one with water quencheth fire, so calm this lover's
  Like heat of fire that burneth here, or flame that rageth through
   the wood.
