निजघ्नुर्हुङ्कृतैर्वेनं हतमच्युतनिन्दया ॥ ३४ ॥
nijaghnur huṅkṛtair venaṁ
ittham — thus; vyavasitāḥ — decided; hantum — to kill; ṛṣayaḥ — the sages; rūḍha — manifested; manyavaḥ — their anger; nijaghnuḥ — they killed; hum-kṛtaiḥ — by angry words or by sounds of hum; venam — King Vena; hatam — dead; acyuta — against the Supreme Personality of Godhead; nindayā — by blasphemy.
The great sages, thus manifesting their covert anger, immediately decided to kill the King. King Vena was already as good as dead due to his blasphemy against the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Thus without using any weapons, the sages killed King Vena simply by high-sounding words.
