SB 10.57.16
yah sapta-hayanah sailam
 utpatyaikena panina
dadhara lilaya bala
 ucchilindhram ivarbhakah


Translation:
“As a child of seven, Krsna uprooted an entire mountain and held it aloft as easily as a young boy picks up a mushroom.


SB 10.57.17
namas tasmai bhagavate
 krsnayadbhuta-karmane
anantayadi-bhutaya
 kuta-sthayatmane namah


Translation:
“I offer my obeisances to that Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krsna, whose every deed is amazing. He is the Supreme Soul, the unlimited source and fixed center of all existence.”


SB 10.57.18
pratyakhyatah sa tenapi
 satadhanva maha-manim
tasmin nyasyasvam aruhya
 sata-yojana-gam yayau

Translation:
His appeal thus rejected by Akrura also, Satadhanva placed the precious jewel in Akrura’s care and fled on a horse that could travel one hundred yojanas [eight hundred miles].

Purport:
The term nyasya, “leaving in the care of,” implies Satadhanva now believed the jewel was his; thus he was leaving it in the care of a friend. In blunt terms, this is a thief’s mentality.
