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


1For so thou art the hero's Friend, a Warrior too art thou, and
  So may thy heart be won to us.
2So hath the offering; wealthiest Lord, been paid by all the
  So dwell thou, Indra, even with me.
3Be not thou, like a slothful priest, O Lord of wealth and spoil:
  In the pressed Soma blent with milk.
4So also is his excellence, great copious, rich in cattle, like
  A ripe branch to the worshipper. p. 313
5For verily thy mighty powers, Indra, are saving helps at once
  Unto a worshipper like me.
6So are his lovely gifts: let laud be said and praise to Indra sung.
  That he may drink the Soma juice.
