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


1Oft, oft I call that Indra, Maghavan the mighty, who evermore
   possesses power, ever resistless.
  Holy, most liberal, may he lead us on to riches, and, thunder
   armed, make all our pathways pleasant for us.
2Indra, what joys as Lord of Light thou broughtest from the
  Prosper therewith, O Maghavan, him who lauds that deed, and
   those whose grass is trimmed for thee.
3The wasteless share of steeds and kine which, Indra, thou hast
   fast secured.
  Grant to the worshipper who presses Soma and gives guerdon,
   not unto the churl.
