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


1Of one accord they made and formed for kingship Indra, the
  Hero who in all encounters overcometh,
  Most eminent for power, destroyer in the conflict, fierce and
   exceeding strong, stalwart and full of vigour.
2Bards joined in song to Indra so that he might drink the Soma
   juice, p. 309
  The Lord of Light, that he whose laws stand fast might aid with
   power and with help he gives.
3The holy sages form a ring, looking and singing to the Ram.
  Your very bright inciters, void of all deceit, are with the chan-
   ters nigh to hear.
