Time draws this chariot with seven wheels. Seven are the hubs; its axle is nondeath. At the head of all beings Time proceeds unceasingly, the first among the Gods.
Atharva Veda XIX, 53, 2
Above Time is set a brimful vessel. Simultaneously we see Time here, there, everywhere. Set face to face with all existences, Time is throned, men say, in the loftiest realm.
Atharva Veda XIX, 53, 3
Time has gathered together all beings that are; he has passed through all the gathered beings. He who was father has become their son. There is no glory higher than his.
Atharva Veda XIX, 53, 4
Time generated the Sky above and this vast Earth. The passing moments present and future, by him set swinging, are reckoned out in due proportions.
Atharva Veda XIX, 53, 5
Time brought forth fate-filled chance. In Time the Sun shines and burns. In Time the eye spies from afar. In Time all existences are.
Atharva Veda XIX, 53, 6
