Oh one who does not abandon the devotees! I request you, the immeasurable, to pardon me for all of those ways you have been insulted by me while playing, reclining, sitting, eating and being together with you or while I was being alone or in front of others.

Rendering based on ALkoNdavilli gOvindhAchArya swAmy’s English translation of gIthA bhAshyam

‘What slight, Achyuta1! in jest, might You have met (from me) at play or at rest, sitting or at meals, alone or in company, I implore Your pardon, (for the same) O Boundless.’

In regard to what, —knowing Your great glory, Your infinite Power, Your measureless Prowess, the Omnipresent nature of Your spirit, Your Greatness as Creator etc.,— might, through heedlessness or folly, love or familiarity for a long time, been uttered by Me, by calling You —as on equal terms of friendship— “O Kṛishṇa!, O Yādava! O Comrade! and so on”, in haste and wanting in humility; and in regard to what might in merriment, —on occasions of our sporting together, sleeping together, sitting together, eating together etc.,— have been done by me, derogatory to Your dignity, O Adorable!, —either alone or in company— let me beseech You to forgive, O Measureless!.
