Preview of English translation:

1. When Indra hurled the thunderbolt at Vritra, that hurled one became fourfold. Of (three parts of) it the wooden sword (sphya) represents one-third or thereabouts, the sacrificial post one-third or thereabouts, and the chariot one-third or thereabouts. That piece, moreover, with which he struck him, was broken off (shri); and on falling down it became an arrow (shara): hence the designation arrow, because it was broken off. And in this way the thunderbolt became fourfold.
