मा नो॑ वधीः पि॒तरं॒ मोत मा॒तरं॒ मा नः॑ प्रि॒यास्त॒न्वो॑ रुद्र रीरिषः ।।

mā no vadhīḥ pitaraṃ móta mātaraṃ mā naḥ priyās tanvò rudra rīriṣaḥ ||

Literal: Don’t inflict pain of your strike on elders, on children, nor youth or mothers baring children, nor to my father nor mother, nor to my wife or grand children, O Rudra.

Interpretive: O Rudra, don’t inflict pain on our elders, children, youth, pregnant women, nor to my parents, wife and grandchildren.

हिन्दी: हे रुद्रदेव​! जो हमारे प्रिय हे, जो हमारे इष्ट हे, आप उन का रक्षा करने का कृपा कीजिए. आप हमारे महान लोगों का वध मत कीजिए. आप हमारे छोटे बच्चों का वध मत कीजिए. आप हमारे मातापिता आदि का वध मत कीजिए.

ગુજરાતી: હે રુદ્ર દેવતા! અમારા પિતામહ​, કાકા વગરે વડીલોને, બાળકોને, યુવકોને, ગર્ભમાંનાં બાલોને, પિતાને, માતાને, સ્ત્રીઓને, પુત્રપૌત્રરૂપ શરીરોને મારશો નહિ

Ralph T.H. Griffith Translation: Do thou no injury to great or small of us, harm not the growing boy, harm not the full grown man. Slay not a sire among us, slay no mother here, and to our own dear bodies, Rudra! do no harm.
