Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 8.21.24
etān vayaḿ vijeṣyāmo
yadi daivaḿ prasīdati
tasmāt kālaḿ pratīkṣadhvaḿ
yo no 'rthatvāya kalpate
etān — all these soldiers of the demigods; vayam — we; vijeṣyāmaḥ — shall gain victory over them; yadi — if; daivam — providence; prasīdati — is in favor; tasmāt — therefore; kālam — that favorable time; pratīkṣadhvam — wait until; yaḥ — which; naḥ — our; arthatvāya kalpate — should be considered in our favor.
Unless providence is in our favor, we shall not be able to gain victory. Therefore we must wait for that favorable time when our defeating them will be possible.
