7. “Over you that are rich in offspring, over you that are free from suffering and disease—;” in this there is nothing that is obscure; '—no thief, no ill-wisher may lord it!'—he thereby means to say, “may the evil spirits, the Rakshas, not lord it over you!”—“May ye be numerous and constant to this lord of cattle!”—thereby he means to say 'may ye be numerous with this sacrificer, and not abandon him.'
