Preview of English translation:

18. After pouring out some of it (into the jug) he puts it down north of the Garhapatya fire. For water (ap) is female and fire (agni) is male; and the Garhapatya is a house: hence a copulation productive of offspring is thereby effected in this house. Now he who brings forward the water, takes up a thunderbolt; but when he takes up the thunderbolt, he cannot do so unless he is firmly placed; for otherwise it destroys him.
