The Atharvaveda

XII 1 Hymn to goddess Earth  Part 9


This Earth, that holds people of manifold varied speech,
of different customs, according to their habitations,
May this Earth point out to us the goodness that we crave;
may Fortune add his help,
may Indra come here as our champion

This Earth, upon whom the noisy mortals sing and dance,
upon whom they fight,
upon whom resounds the roaring drum,
Drive forth those who would do us harm
Make us free from aggression

This Earth, upon whose ground the citadels
constructed by the gods unfold themselves,
every region of her that is the womb of all,
Make into a place of peace
