9. He recites (the first kindling verse), “Forth go your viands, heavenward!” this, then, tends in a forward direction. “Viands” (vaja) he says, because viands mean food: hence food is obtained (for the sacrificer) by this recitation. “Heavenward” he says, because those that tend heavenward are the half-moons: it is, therefore, the half-moons which he obtains by this recitation. “In havis rich” he further says, because those that are rich in havis (milk, butter) are the cattle; it is cattle, therefore, that he thereby obtains through the recitation.
