ततो निवार्य कृष्णद्विड् रुक्मी चैद्यममन्यत ॥ २५ ॥
kṛṣṇāya bhaginīṁ nṛpa
tato nivārya kṛṣṇa-dviḍ
rukmī caidyam amanyata
O King, because Rukmī envied the Lord, he forbade his family members to give his sister to Kṛṣṇa, although they wanted to. Instead, Rukmī decided to give Rukmiṇī to Śiśupāla.
Rukmī abused his position as elder brother and acted with impure motives. He would only suffer for his decision.
