8. He then unties the sling of the netting, and the sling of the gold plate; for the sling belongs to Varuna: he thus frees himself from Varuna’s noose. He does so with a verse to Varuna: he thus frees himself from Varuna’s noose by its own self, by its own deity. [Vajasaneyi Samhita XII, 12; Rik S. I, 24, 15] “Take off from us, O Varuna, the uppermost cord, down (take) the lowest, away the middle one!”—as the text, so the meaning;—“and so, O Aditya, may we be sinless in thy service for safety (Aditi)!”—Aditi is this earth: thus, “Sinless may we belong to thee and to her (the earth)!”
