 SB 10.66.2
tvam vasudevo bhagavan
 avatirno jagat-patih
iti prastobhito balair
 mena atmanam acyutam


Translation:
Paundraka was emboldened by the flattery of childish men, who told him, “You are Vasudeva, the Supreme Lord and master of the universe, who have now descended to the earth.” Thus he imagined himself to be the infallible Personality of Godhead.

Purport:

Paundraka foolishly accepted the flattery of ignorant persons.


SB 10.66.3
dutam ca prahinon mandah
 krsnayavyakta-vartmane
dvarakayam yatha balo
 nrpo bala-krto ’budhah

Translation:
Thus slow-witted King Paundraka sent a messenger to the inscrutable Lord Krsna at Dvaraka. Paundraka was acting just like an unintelligent child whom other children are pretending is a king.

Purport:
According to Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, the reason Sukadeva Gosvami here mentions for the second time that Paundraka sent a message to Lord Krsna is that the great sage is astonished at Paundraka’s extreme foolishness.
