Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.64.21
nāhaḿ pratīcche vai rājann
ity uktvā svāmy apākramat
nānyad gavām apy ayutam
icchāmīty aparo yayau
na — not; aham — I; pratīcche — want; vai — indeed; rājan — O King; iti — thus; uktvā — saying; svāmī — the owner; apākramat — went away; na — not; anyat — in addition; gavām — of cows; api — even; ayutam — ten thousand; icchāmi — I want; iti — thus saying; aparaḥ — the other (brāhmaṇa); yayau — left.
The present owner of the cow said, "I don't want anything in exchange for this cow, O King," and went away. The other brāhmaṇa declared, "I don't want even ten thousand more cows [than you are offering]," and he too went away.
In Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Śrīla Prabhupāda comments, "Thus disagreeing with the King's proposal, both brāhmaṇas left the palace in anger, thinking that their lawful position had been usurped."
