English Translation

Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1. SWAYING about, the Active Ones came nigh to Indra at his birth,
And shared his great heroic might.

2 Based upon strength and victory and power, O Indra is thy birth:
Thou, Mighty One, art strong indeed.

3 Thou art the Vṛtra-slayer, thou, Indra, hast spread the firmament:
Thou hast with might upheld the heavens.

4 Thou, Indra, bearest in thine arms the lightning that accords with thee,
Whetting thy thunderbolt with might.

5 Thou, Indra, art preeminent over all creatures in thy might:
Thou hast pervaded every place.
