THE SLAYING OF THE FIRE-DEITY

Then the invites-Male, drawing the ten-grasp sabre that was augustly girded on him, cut off the head of his child the Deity Fire-Burning-Swift-Male.


Hereupon the names of the Deities that were born from the blood that stuck to the point of the august sword and bespattered the multitudinous rock-masses were:
 the Deity Rock-Splitter, 
 next the Deity Root-Splitter,   
 next the Deity Rock-Tube-Male.  

The names of the Deities that were next born from the blood that stuck to the upper part of the august sword and again bespattered the multitudinous rock-masses were:
 the Deity Awfully-Swift,  
 next the Deity Fire-Swift,  
 next the Deity Brave-Thander-Male,  
  another name for whom is the Brave-Snapping-Deity,
  and another name is the Luxuriant-Snapping Deity.

The names of the Deities that were next born from the blood that collected on the hilt of the august sword and leaked out between his fingers were:
 the Deity Valley-Dragon
 and next the Deity Valley-Fountain.   

All the eight Deities in the above list, from the Deity Rock-Splitter to the Deity Valley-Fountain, are Deities that were born from the august sword.


The Mountains-Soul was born from the body of the Deity Burning-Male-of-Fire,
 The name of the Deity that was next born from his head was the Deity Slope-Mountains-Soul.
