    पुमान् योषिदुत क्लीब आत्मसम्भावनोऽधमः । भूतेषु निरनुक्रोशो नृपाणां तद्वधोऽवधः ।। ४-१७-२६ ।।

    Any cruel person — be he a man, woman or impotent eunuch — who is only interested in his personal maintenance and has no compassion for other living entities may be killed by the king. Such killing can never be considered actual killing. ।। 4-17-26 ।।

  2. 27

    त्वां स्तब्धां दुर्मदां नीत्वा मायागां तिलशः शरैः । आत्मयोगबलेनेमा धारयिष्याम्यहं प्रजाः ।। ४-१७-२७ ‌।।

    You are very much puffed up with pride and have become almost insane. Presently you have assumed the form of a cow by your mystic powers. Nonetheless I shall cut you into small pieces like grain, and I will uphold the entire population by my personal mystic powers. ।। 4-17-27 ।।

  3. 28

    एवं मन्युमयीं मूर्तिं कृतान्तमिव बिभ्रतम् । प्रणता प्राञ्जलिः प्राह मही सञ्जातवेपथुः ।। ४-१७-२८ ।।

    At this time Pṛthu Mahārāja became exactly like Yamarāja, and his whole body appeared very angry. In other words, he was anger personified. After hearing him, the planet earth began to tremble. She surrendered, and with folded hands began to speak as follows. ।। 4-17-28 ।।

  4. 29

    धरोवाच नमः परस्मै पुरुषाय मायया विन्यस्तनानातनवे गुणात्मने । नमः स्वरूपानुभवेन निर्धुतद्रव्यक्रियाकारकविभ्रमोर्मये ।। ४-१७-२९ ।।

    The planet earth spoke: My dear Lord, O Supreme Personality of Godhead, You are transcendental in Your position, and by Your material energy You have expanded Yourself in various forms and species of life through the interaction of the three modes of material nature. Unlike some other masters, You always remain in Your transcendental position and are not affected by the material creation, which is subject to different material interactions. Consequently You are not bewildered by material activities. ।। 4-17-29 ।।

  5. 30

    येनाहमात्माऽऽयतनं विनिर्मिता धात्रा यतोऽयं गुणसर्गसङ्ग्रहः । स एव मां हन्तुमुदायुधः स्वराडुपस्थितोऽन्यं शरणं कमाश्रये ।। ४-१७-३० ।।

    The planet earth continued: My dear Lord, You are the complete conductor of the material creation. You have created this cosmic manifestation and the three material qualities, and therefore You have created me, the planet earth, the resting place of all living entities. Yet You are always fully independent, my Lord. Now that You are present before me and ready to kill me with Your weapons, let me know where I should go to take shelter, and tell me who can give me protection. ।। 4-17-30 ।।
