18. He beats with (Vajasaneyi Samhita VI, 35), “Fear not, tremble not!” whereby he means to say, “Be not afraid, do not tremble, it is N.N. I strike, not thee!”—“Take thou strength!” whereby he means to say, “Take sap!”—“Both ye bowls, that are firm, remain firm, take strength!”—“Surely, it is those two (pressing-)boards that are thereby meant,” so say some;—what, then, if one were to break those two boards? But, forsooth, it is these two, heaven and earth, that tremble for fear of that raised thunderbolt (the stone): hereby now he propitiates it for those two, heaven and earth; and thus propitiated it does not injure them. By 'Take strength!' he means to say, “Take sap!”—“The evil is slain, not Soma!” he thereby slays every evil of his.
