XI.1.3 O Agni, thou hast been born unto great heroism, unto the cooking of the brahman-rice-dish, O jatavedas; the seven Saptarshi seers being makers – they have given thee birth; do thou confirm to this woman wealth with all heroes. XI.1.4 Kindled, O Agni, be thou kindled with kindling (samidh); mayest thou bring hiter, knowing, the worshipful gods; for them cooking (sra) the oblation, O Jatavedas, make thou this man to ascend to the highest firmament (naka).
