Preview of English translation:
10. For, indeed, life and the deities depart from those who at the sacrifice speak impure speech: it is their speech they thereby purify so that the deities may not depart from the divine service. Now (some) put the omentum of the Gomriga and that of the hornless he-goat upon the horse and then take it (to the Ahavaniya), saying, “The horse has no omentum.” Let him not do so: of the horse he should certainly take the fat; the (omenta of the) others are normal.
