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


A charm to secure wealth and felicity

1Ours is superior place and ours is conquest: may I in all fights
   tread down spite and malice.
2This word hath Agni, this hath Soma spoken. May Pūshan set
   me in the world of virtue.
3We have come to the light of heaven; to the light of heaven
   have we come: we have united with the light of Surya.
4Sacrifice is fraught with wealth for the increase of prosperity. I
   would win riches; fain would I be wealthy. Do thou bestow
   wealth upon me.
