Preview of English translation:

17. The two omentum-spits are made of karshmarya wood. For when the gods in the beginning seized (slew) a victim, then, as it was drawn upwards, its sacrificial essence flowed downwards, and from it sprang a tree; and because it flowed down from the (victim) as it was drawn (karsh) upwards, therefore (it became) a karshmarya tree. With that same sacrificial essence he now perfects it, and makes it whole; therefore the two omentum-spits are of karshmarya wood.
