8. He then kneels down with his right knee (on the skin), with the text, “Thou art a refuge: afford me refuge!” for the skin (carma) of the black deer it is indeed among men, but among the gods it is a refuge (sharma): therefore he says, “Thou art a refuge: afford me refuge.” 'Homage be to thee: injure me not!' Now he who raises himself upon the sacrifice doubtless raises himself to one that is his better; for the black deer skin is a (means of) sacrifice. Hereby, now, he propitiates that sacrifice, and thus that sacrifice does not injure him: for this reason he says, “Homage be to thee: injure me not!”
