English Translation

Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1. THE drop of Soma juice effused flows onward with this stream impelled.
Rending strong places with its might.

2 Poured forth to Indra, Varuṇa, to Vāyu and the Marut hosts,
To Viṣṇu, flows the Soma juice.

3 With stones they press the Soma forth, the Strong conducted by the strong:
They milk the liquor out with skill.

4 ’Tis he whom Trita must refine, ’tis he who shall make Indra glad:
The Tawny One is decked with tints.

5 Him do the Sons of Pṛśni milk, the dwelling-place of sacrifice,
Oblation lovely and most dear.

6 To him in one unitcd stream th-,se songs flow on straight forward. he,
Loud voiced, hath made the milch-kine low.
