1. SWAYING about, the Active Ones came nigh to Indra at his birth, And shared his great heroic might. 2. Based upon strength and victory and power, O Indra is thy birth: Thou, Mighty One, art strong indeed. 3. Thou art the Vrtra-slayer, thou, Indra, hast spread the firmament: Thou hast with might upheld the heavens. 4. Thou, Indra, bearest in thine arms the lightning that accords with thee, Whetting thy thunderbolt with might. 5. Thou, Indra, art preeminent over all creatures in thy might: Thou hast pervaded every place.
