<< Chapter 18 Verse 68

Simple

na ca tasmān manuṣyeṣu
kaścin me priya-kṛttamaḥ
bhavitā na ca me tasmād
anyaḥ priya-taro bhuvi

‘There is not one among mankind who does Me
dearer service than he; nor shall there be on earth any one dearer to Me than he.’

There has not been in the past one man in all mankind, who has done to Me dearer service than he, and one such is not going to be in the future. The reference in this verse to those outside the God-lovers, is with the object of strongly placing them in contrast (with the Lovers). The exposure of the wicked is more imperious than the laudation of the good in as much as the former are most despicable.
