Mandala 4 – Hymn 49 [Rig Veda]

1. DEAR is this offering in your mouth, O Indra and Brhaspati: Famed is the laud, the gladdening draught. 2. This lovely Soma is effused, O Indra and Brhaspati, For you, to drink it and rejoice. 3. As Soma-drinkers to our house come, Indra and Brhaspati-and Indra-to drink Soma juice. 4. Vouchsafe us riches hundredfold, O Indra, and Brhaspati, With store of horses, thousandfold. 5. O Indra. and Brhaspati, we call you when the meath is shed, With songs, to drink the Soma juice. 6. Drink, Indra and Brhaspati, the Soma in the giver’s house: Delight yourselves abiding there.
