Atharva Veda: Book 1 – Hymn 8


To Indra, Brihaspati, Soma and Agni, for the destruction of sorcerers

This sacrifice shall bring the Yātudhānas as the flood brings
Here let the doer of this deed woman or man, acknowledge it.
This one hath come confessing all: do ye receive him
Master him thou, Brihaspati; Agni and Soma, pierce him
O Soma-drinker, strike and bring the Yātudhāna’s progeny:
Make the confessing sinner’s eyes fall from his head, both right
and left.
As thou, O Agni Jātavedas, knowest the races of these secret
greedy beings,
So strengthened by the power of prayer, O Agni, crushing them
down a hundred times destroy them.
