SB 10.63.28
tapto ’ham te tejasa duhsahena
 santogrenaty-ulbanena jvarena
tavat tapo dehinam te ’nghri-mulam
 no severan yavad asanubaddhah

Translation:
I am tortured by the fierce power of Your terrible fever weapon, which is cold yet burning. All embodied souls must suffer as long as they remain bound to material ambitions and thus averse to serving Your feet.

Purport:
In the previous verse, the Siva-jvara stated that those who live by violence will suffer similar violence at the hands of the Lord. But here he further states that those who do not surrender to the Supreme Lord are especially liable to punishment. Although the Siva-jvara himself had acted violently up till now, since he has surrendered to the Lord and rectified himself, he hopes to receive the Lord’s mercy. In other words, he has now become the Lord’s devotee.
