RV VIII , 58

  RV VIII , 58 (soma = ‘purified’ eden-waters)   1. THIS here is Soma, ne’er restrained, active, all-conquering bursting forth, Ṛṣi and Sage by sapience, 2 All that is bare he covers o’er, all that is sick he medicines; The blind man sees, the cripple walks. 3 Thou, Soma, givest wide defence against the hate of alien men, Hatreds that waste and weaken us. [same theme in Zech. 11 , “support who doesn’t stand” etc]
