8. “To Indra, the slayer of the evil-minded,—thee, hail!”—Indra indeed is he who blows here: it is to him he thus offers it, and therefore he says, “To Indra—thee;” and as to his saying, “to the slayer of the evil-minded,” the evil-minded one being an enemy, he thereby means to say, “To Indra, the slayer of enemies,—thee!” This is his (Indra's) special share: even as there is a share for a chief, so is this his (share) apart from the (other) gods.
