SB 10.61.1
sri-suka uvaca
ekaikasas tah krsnasya
 putran dasa-dasabaah
ajijanann anavaman
 pituh sarvatma-sampada

Translation:
Sukadeva Gosvami said: Each of Lord Krsna’s wives gave birth to ten sons, who were not less than their father, having all His personal opulence.

Purport:
Lord Krsna had 16,108 wives, and thus this verse indicates that the Lord begot 161,080 sons.


SB 10.61.2
grhad anapagam viksya
 raja-putryo ’cyutam sthitam
prestham nyamamsata svam svam
 na tat-tattva-vidah striyah


Translation:
Because each of these princesses saw that Lord Acyuta never left her palace, each thought herself the Lord’s favorite. These women did not understand the full truth about Him.
Purport:
Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura notes that Lord Krsna would leave the palaces only with the permission of His wives, and thus each one considered herself His favorite.


SB 10.61.3
carv-abja-kosa-vadanayata-bahu-netra-
 sa-prema-hasa-rasa-viksita-valgu-jalpaih
sammohita bhagavato na mano vijetum
 svair vibhramaih samasakan vanita vibhumnah

Translation:
The Supreme Lord’s wives were fully enchanted by His lovely, lotuslike face, His long arms and large eyes, His loving glances imbued with laughter, and His charming talks with them. But with all their charms these ladies could not conquer the mind of the all-powerful Lord.

Purport:
The previous verse stated that Lord Krsna’s queens could not understand the truth of the Lord. This truth is explained in the present verse. The Lord is all-powerful, full in Himself, with infinite opulence.
