26. They are fastened with halters of reed-grass to guard (Agni) against injury;—Agni went away from the gods; he entered into a reed, whence it is hollow, and whence inside it is, as it were, smoke-tinged: (thus) that, the reed, is Agni’s womb, and Agni is these cattle; and the womb does not injure the child. For it is from a womb that he who is born is born: “from the womb he (Agni) shall be born when he is born,” thus he thinks.
