English Translation

Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1. ENGENDERING the Sun in floods, engendering heaven’s lights, green-hued,
Robed in the waters and the milk,

2 According to primeval plan this Soma, with his stream, effused
Flows purely on, a God for Gods.

3 For him victorious, waxen great, the juices with a thousand powers
Are purified for winning spoil.

4 Shedding the ancient fluid he is poured into the cleansing sieve:
He, thundering, hath produced the Gods.

5 Soma, while purifying, sends hither all things to be desired,
He sends the Gods who strengthen Law.

6 Soma, effused, pour on us wealth in kine, in heroes, steeds, and spoil,
Send us abundant store of food.
