21. [He continues, Vajasaneyi Samhita III, 18], “Kindled, we enkindle thee, the brilliant one, a hundred winters—;” he thereby says, “may we live a hundred years;” and 'so long we enkindle thee, the great one,' he says, when he says 'we enkindle thee, the brilliant one.' '—We, the vigorous—thee, the invigorating; we, the strong—thee, the giver of strength—;' whereby he says, “may we be vigorous, mayest thou be invigorating! may we be strong, mayest thou be a giver of strength!” '—We, the uninjured—thee, the uninjurable injurer of enemies!' whereby he says, “by thine aid may we render our enemies utterly miserable!”
