bandhunam icchatam datum
 krsnaya bhaginim nrpa
tato nivarya krsna-dvid
 rukmi caidyam amanyata

O King, because Rukmi envied the Lord, he forbade his family members to give his sister to Krsna, although they wanted to. Instead, Rukmi decided to give Rukmini to Sisupala.

Rukmi abused his position as elder brother and acted with impure motives. He would only suffer for his decision.
