CC Madhya 16.10

āji-kāli kari’ uṭhāya vividha upāya
yāite sammati nā deya vicchedera bhaya
Word for word: 
āji-kāli kari’ — delaying today and tomorrow; uṭhāya — they put forward; vividha upāya — many devices; yāite — to go; sammati — permission; deya — did not give; vicchedera bhaya — because of fearing separation.
In this way they both presented many impediments, indirectly not granting the Lord permission to go to Vṛndāvana. They did this because they were afraid of separation from Him.
