 SB 10.74.1
sri-suka uvaca
evam yudhisthiro raja
 jarasandha-vadham vibhoh
krsnasya canubhavam tam
 srutva pritas tam abravit

Sukadeva Gosvami said: Having thus heard of the killing of Jarasandha, and also of almighty Krsna’s wonderful power, King Yudhisthira addressed the Lord as follows with great pleasure.

SB 10.74.2
sri-yudhisthira uvaca
ye syus trai-lokya-guravah
 sarve loka mahesvarah
vahanti durlabham labdva

Sri Yudhisthira said: All the exalted spiritual masters of the three worlds, together with the inhabitants and rulers of the various planets, carry on their heads Your command, which is rarely obtained.

Srila Prabhupada renders Maharaja Yudhisthira’s statement as follows: “My dear Krsna, O eternal form of bliss and knowledge, all the exalted directors of the affairs of this material world, including Lord Brahma, Lord Siva and King Indra, are always anxious to receive and carry out orders from You, and whenever they are fortunate enough to receive such orders, they immediately take them and keep them in their hearts.”
