Yasna 28.9

Ahura, as not coming to you that I can not do

Mazda, I will not vex excellence/virtue for the sake of gain (That is not a single advantage I desire which vexes virtue/excellence)

 Vohü-man; the best, most wondrous (I will not vex)

Who gives colossal might to your praisers (that is Vohü-man will bring the future saviors; Hüshedar, Hüshedar-Mah and Saöshyáns; to ask questions of you, thereby receiving immense powers)

For you are most loving, (lively, swift)

Towards the prayer/wish for the rule of happiness and well-being (That is you love the rule of happiness and good-fortune, and will establish/give it)
