tenāsurīm agan yonim
nītās te yoga-māyayā
devakyā udare jātā
sā tān śocaty ātmajān svāḿs

tena — by that; āsurīm — demoniac; agan — they entered; yonim — a womb; adhunā — immediately; avadya — improper; karmaṇā — by the act; hiraṇyakaśipoḥ — to Hiraṇyakaśipu; jātāḥ — born; nītāḥ — brought; te — they; yoga-māyayā — by the Lord's divine power of illusion; devakyāḥ — of Devakī; udare — from the womb; jātāḥ — born; rājan — O King (Bali); kaḿsa — by Kaḿsa; vihiḿsitāḥ — murdered; sā — she; tān — for them; śocati — laments; ātma-jān — sons; svān — her own; te — they; ime — these same; adhyāsate — are living; antike — nearby.
Because of that improper act, they immediately entered a demoniac form of life, and thus they took birth as sons of Hiraṇyakaśipu. The goddess Yogamāyā then took them away from Hiraṇyakaśipu, and they were born again from Devakī's womb. After this, O King, Kaḿsa murdered them. Devakī still laments for them, thinking of them as her sons. These same sons of Marīci are now living here with you.
Ācāryas Śrīdhara Svāmī and Viśvanātha Cakravartī explain that after taking Marīci's six sons from Hiraṇyakaśipu, Lord Kṛṣṇa's Yogamāyā first made them pass through one more life as children of another great demon, Kālanemi, and then she finally transferred them to the womb of Devakī.
