Preview of English translation:

7. They spake unto Prajapati 'We are afraid of this one, lest he should hurt us!' He spake, “Gather food for him, and appease him therewith!” They gathered for him that food, the Shatarudriya (offering), and thereby appeased him; and inasmuch as they thereby appeased (sham) the hundred-headed (shatashirsha) Rudra, it is called Shatashirsharudrashamaniya,—and shatashirsharudrashamaniya, doubtless, is what they mystically call Shatarudriya, for the gods love the mystic. And in like manner does this (Sacrificer) now gather for him that food, the Shatarudriya, and appease him thereby.
