SB 10.69.31
kurvantam vigraham kaiscit
 sandhim canyatra kesavam
kutrapi saha ramena
 cintayantam satam sivam

In one place He was planning battles in consultation with some of His advisers, and in another place He was making peace. Somewhere Lord Kesava and Lord Balarama were together pondering the welfare of the pious.

SB 10.69.32
putranam duhitrnam ca
 kale vidhy-upayapanam
darair varais tat-sadrsaih
 kalpayantam vibhutibhih

Narada saw Lord Krsna engaged in getting His sons and daughters married to suitable brides and bridegrooms at the appropriate time, and the marriage ceremonies were being performed with great pomp.

This translation is based on Srila Prabhupada’s Krsna.

The word kale here means that Krsna arranged for His sons and daughters to be married when each of them reached the proper age.
