evam -- thus; duruktaih -- by harsh words; muhuh -- constantly; ardayan -- chastising; rusha -- with unnecessary anger; sutam -- his son; maha-bhagavatam -- who was a most exalted devotee; maha-asurah -- Hiranyakasipu, the great demon; khadgam -- sword; pragrihya -- taking up; utpatitah -- having gotten up; vara-asanat -- from his exalted throne; stambham -- the column; tatada -- struck; ati-balah -- very strong; sva-mushtina -- by his fist.
Being obsessed with anger, Hiranyakasipu, who was very great in bodily strength, thus chastised his exalted devotee-son Prahlada with harsh words. Cursing him again and again, Hiranyakasipu took up his sword, got up from his royal throne, and with great anger struck his fist against the column.
