Preview of English translation:

18. He beats the mill-stones with the wedge, with the text (Vajasaneyi Samhita I, 16 a): “A honey-tongued cock (kukkuta) art thou (O wedge)!” For honey-tongued indeed was he (the bull) for the gods, and poison-tongued for the Asuras: hence he thereby says: “What thou wert for the gods, that be thou for us!” He adds: “Sap and strength do thou call hither! with thy help may we conquer in every battle!” In these words there is nothing that is obscure.
