|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 4: The Atrocities of King Kaḿsa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.4.17
daivam apy anṛtaḿ vakti
na martyā eva kevalam
yad-viśrambhād ahaḿ pāpaḥ
svasur nihatavāñ chiśūn
daivam — providence; api — also; anṛtam — lies; vakti — say; na — not; martyāḥ — human beings; eva — certainly; kevalam — only; yat-viśrambhāt — because of believing that prophecy; aham — I; pāpaḥ — the most sinful; svasuḥ — of my sister; nihatavān — killed; śiśūn — so many children.
Alas, not only human beings but sometimes even providence lies. And I am so sinful that I believed the omen of providence and killed so many of my sister's children.
