So, Indra, listen here to those who bring the laud: come near unto our dwellingplace.

कषुमन्तं वाजं शतिनं सहस्रिणं मक्षू गोमन्तमीमहे

Thy loftiest glories claim our lauds beside the juice, O Indra, Lover of the Song.

यद दित्ससि सतुवते मावते वसु नकिष टदा मिनाति ते

When he who will be born is born with power we look to treasures as our heritage.

When thou attackest Vṛtra all the hostile bands shrink and faint, Indra, at thy wrath.
