ita etan pranesyamo

We wish to take them from this place to dispel their mother’s sorrow. Then, released from their curse and free from all suffering, they will return to their home in heaven.

As pointed out by Srila Prabhupada in his purports to Chapter Two, texts 5 and 8, of this canto, Marici’s sons were condemned for their offense against Lord Brahma, and in addition Hiranyakasipu once cursed them to be killed by their own father in a future life. This curse was fulfilled by Vasudeva’s letting Kamsa murder them one by one.
