HYMN XCIX. Agni: Rig Veda – Book 1 – Ralph T.H. Griffith, Translator

जातवेदसे सुनवाम सोममरातीयतो नि दहाति वेदः |
स नः पर्षदति दुर्गाणि विश्वा नावेव सिन्धुं दुरितात्यग्निः ||

jātavedase sunavāma somamarātīyato ni dahāti vedaḥ |
sa naḥ parṣadati durghāṇi viśvā nāveva sindhuṃ duritātyaghniḥ ||

English Translation

Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1. FOR Jātavedas let us press the Soma: may he consume the wealth of the malignant.
May Agni carry us through all our troubles, through grief as in a boat across the river.
