Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, [1895] 1Let not the enemy win the cause! Strong and predominant art    thou.   Refute mine adversary's speech. Render them dull and flat, O   Plant. 2 The strong-winged bird discovered thee, the boar unearthed thee    with his snout.   Refute mine adversary's speech. Render them dull and flat, O   Plant. 3 Yea, Indra laid thee on his arm, to cast the Asuras to the    ground.   Refute mine adversary's speech. Render them dull and flat, O   Plant. 4 Indra devoured the Pātā plant that he might lay the Asuras    low.   Refute mine adversary's speech! Render them dull and flat, O   Plant. p. a54 5With this I overcome my foes as Indra overcame the wolves.   Refute mine adversary's speech! Render them dull and flat, O   Plant. 6 O Rudra, Lord of Healing Balms, dark-crested, skilful in thy    work!—   Refute mine adversary's speech. Render them dull and flat, O   Plant. 7 Indra, defeat the speech of him who meets us with hostility.   Comfort us with thy power and might. Make me superior in    debate.
