Preview of English translation:

15. He draws (the Antaryama graha) therefrom with (Vajasaneyi Samhita VII, 4), “Thou art taken with a support!”—The significance of the Upayama has been told.—“Restrain thou, O mighty (Indra), guard Soma!” the mighty, forsooth, is Indra; and Indra is the leader of the sacrifice: wherefore he says 'O mighty!' and by 'guard Soma' he means to say 'protect Soma!' 'Preserve the riches! gain thee food in the sacrifice!'—riches mean cattle: “Protect the cattle” he thereby means to say. “Gain thee food in the sacrifice!”—food means creatures: he thus makes these eager to sacrifice, and these creatures go on sacrificing and praising and toiling.
