O king of kings, please listen ( Parthivapathe )
Krishna, who was happily received by all the royals in the court including Bheeshma, respectfully addresses Dhritharashtra who only possesses inner vision.
O king of kings, please listen
I am Krishna, envoy of the Pandavas;
What I am going to say is all on their behalf
The evil deeds your sons did in the past
the Pandavas have forgiven,
and are begging you for their share
Please understand the import of my mission,
invite the Pandavas here,
then grant them half the kingdom
If you do not, then have no doubt
Arjuna will kill all your sons.
Don’t cry later; they have me on their side
