English Translation

Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1. FOR Iṭa’s sake who pressed the juice, thou, Indra, didst protect his car,
And hear the Soma-giver’s call.

2 Thou from his skin hast borne the head of the swift-moving combatant,
And sought the Soma-pourer’s home.

3 Venya, that mortal man, hast thou, for Āstrabudhna the devout,
O Indra, many a time set free.

4 Bring, Indra, to the east again that Sun who now is in the west,
Even against the will of Gods.
