rājñāṁ sva-śatru-vadham ātma-vimokṣaṇaṁ ca
gopyaś ca kuñjara-pater janakātmajāyāḥ
pitroś ca labdha-śaraṇā munayo vayaṁ ca
Great sages and devotees had informed the grief-stricken wives of the imprisoned kings that Lord Kṛṣṇa would arrange for the killing of Jarāsandha and would thus save them from their crisis. These godly women would thus sing the glories of the Lord at home, and when their children would cry for their fathers, their mothers would tell them, “Child, do not cry. Śrī Kṛṣṇa will save your father.” In fact, the Lord has saved many devotees in the past, as described here.
