Preview of English translation:

5. Indra hurled the thunderbolt at Vritra; and having smitten Vritra, the wicked, and safety and peace being secured, he led forth the dakshinas (gifts to priests). Wherefore now also, when they (the Udgatris) chant the midday Pavamana, and safety and peace are secured, the dakshinas are led forth. And so, forsooth, does he now by means of those five cups of Soma hurl the thunderbolt at the wicked, hateful enemy, and having smitten Vritra, the wicked, and safety and peace being secured, he leads forth the dakshinas. This is why he draws those five cups.
