Preview of English translation:

5. The Adhvaryu takes (draws) it by means of the Graha (Soma-cup); and inasmuch as he thereby takes (grab) it, it is (called) Graha. The Udgatri puts the vital fluid into it by means of the (saman of the) Great Rite (mahavrata); but, indeed, the (saman of the) Great Rite is (equivalent to) all these (other) samans (hymn-tunes): it is thus by means of all the hymn-tunes that he puts the vital fluid therein. The Hotri puts the vital fluid therein by means of the Great Litany; but, indeed, the Great Litany is the same as all these ric (hymn-verses): it is thus by means of all the hymn-verses that he puts the vital fluid into it (the Soma-cup).
