yaḥ — any person who; tu — but; iha — in this life; vai — indeed; steyena — by thievery; balāt — by force; vā — or; hiraṇya — gold; ratna — gems; ādīni — and so on; brāhmaṇasya — of a brāhmaṇa; vā — or; apaharati — steals; anyasya — of others; vā — or; anāpadi — not in a calamity; puruṣaḥ — a person; tam — him; amutra — in the next life; rājan — O King; yama-puruṣāḥ — the agents of Yamarāja; ayaḥ-mayaiḥ — made of iron; agni-piṇḍaiḥ — balls heated in fire; sandaḿśaiḥ — with tongs; tvaci — on the skin; niṣkuṣanti — tear to pieces.
My dear King, a person who in the absence of an emergency robs a brāhmaṇa — or, indeed, anyone else — of his gems and gold is put into a hell known as Sandaḿśa. There his skin is torn and separated by red-hot iron balls and tongs. In this way, his entire body is cut to pieces.
