Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.1.47
nirbandhaḿ tasya taḿ jñātvā
prāptaḿ kālaḿ prativyoḍhum
nirbandham — determination to do something; tasya — of him (Kaḿsa); tam — that (determination); jñātvā — understanding; vicintya — thinking deeply; ānakadundubhiḥ — Vasudeva; prāptam — had arrived; kālam — imminent danger of death; prativyoḍhum — to stop him from such activities; idam — this; tatra — thereupon; anvapadyata — thought of other ways.
When Vasudeva saw that Kaḿsa was determined to kill his sister Devakī, he thought to himself very deeply. Considering the imminent danger of death, he thought of another plan to stop Kaḿsa.
Although Vasudeva saw the imminent danger that his wife Devakī would be killed, he was convinced of his welfare because at his birth the demigods had played drums and kettledrums. He therefore attempted another way to save Devakī.
