rvs.7.32 HYMN XXXII. Indra. 32
rvs.7.32 Wealthcraving- singers have on Indra set their hope, as men set foot upon a car.

rvs.7.32 Even many snares and bonds subdue not him who dwells with Indra through his sacrifice.
rvs.7.32 14 Indra, what mortal will attack the man who hath his wealth in thee?
rvs.7.32 16 Thine, Indra, is the lowest wealth, thou cherishest the midmost- wealth,
rvs.7.32 18 If I, O Indra, were the Lord of riches ample as thine own,
rvs.7.32 Your Indra, Muchinvoked-, I bend with song, as bends a wright his wheel of solid wood.

rvs.7.33 Indra preferred Vasisthas to the Soma pressed by the son of Vayata, Pasadyumna.
rvs.7.33 So in the fight with the Ten Kings, Vasisthas! did Indra help Sudas through your devotions.
rvs.7.33 Since, when ye sang aloud the Sakvari verses, Vasisthas! ye invigorated Indra.
rvs.7.33 Then Indra heard Vasistha as he praised him, and gave the Trtsus ample room and freedom.

rvs.7.37 For thee with friendly succour have we battled, and when, O Indra, wilt thou grant us riches?
rvs.7.37 6 To us thy priests a home, as it were, thou givest: when, Indra wilt thou recognize our praises?
