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


A prayer for children and booty

1May the Gods' Consorts aid us of their own free will, help us
   to offspring and the winning of the spoil.
  May Goddesses who quickly listen shelter us, both those on
   earth and they within the waters' realm.
2May the Dames, wives of Gods, enjoy our presents, Rāt, Asvini
  Indrāni and Agnāyi;
  May Rodasi and Varunāni hear us, and Goddesses come at the
   matrons' season.
