Preview of English translation:
20. Moreover, that (fire) is the (sacrificer's) breath: let them therefore carry it in such wise that it turns back towards him; for it is in the direction of him that the breath enters into him. And, verily, from whomsoever it (the fire) turns away, from him the breath also turns away; and if in that case any one were to curse him, saying, “May the breath turn away from him!” then he would indeed be liable to fare thus.
