25. He offers with (Vajasaneyi Samhita VI, 27), “Ye divine waters,—the son of waters;” the waters are indeed divine, hence he says, “Ye divine waters,—the son of waters;” 'That wave of yours, suitable for offering;' whereby he means to say, “That wave of yours which is suitable for the sacrifice;” 'Mighty, most grateful;' by 'mighty' he means to say 'powerful,' and by 'most grateful' he means to say 'most sweet;' 'Give ye that unto those gods among the gods,' in saying this he has craved it of them; 'The drinkers of the pure (Soma);' the pure, doubtless, is the truth; in saying, “the drinkers (pa) of the pure,” he means to say, “the defenders (pa) of the truth;” 'Whose portion ye are, Hail!' for this indeed is their portion.
