|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 3: The Birth of Lord Kṛṣṇa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.3.30
ado rūpam alaukikam
śriyā juṣṭaḿ catur-bhujam
upasaḿhara — withdraw; viśvātman — O all-pervading Supreme Personality of Godhead; adaḥ — that; rūpam — form; alaukikam — which is unnatural in this world; śańkha-cakra-gadā-padma — of the conchshell, disc, club and lotus; śriyā — with these opulences; juṣṭam — decorated; catuḥ-bhujam — four hands.
O my Lord, You are the all-pervading Supreme Personality of Godhead, and Your transcendental four-armed form, holding conchshell, disc, club and lotus, is unnatural for this world. Please withdraw this form [and become just like a natural human child so that I may try to hide You somewhere].
Devakī was thinking of hiding the Supreme Personality of Godhead and not handing Him over to Kaḿsa as she had all her previous children. Although Vasudeva had promised to hand over every child to Kaḿsa, this time he wanted to break his promise and hide the child somewhere. But because of the Lord's appearance in this surprising four-armed form, He would be impossible to hide.
