Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.86.50
tad-uktam ity upākarṇya
gṛhītvā pāṇinā pāṇiḿ
prahasaḿs tam uvāca ha
śrī-śukaḥ uvāca — Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said; tat — by him (Śrutadeva); uktam — what was spoken; iti — thus; upākarṇya — hearing; bhagavān — the Supreme Lord; praṇata — of the surrendered; ārti — of distress; hā — the destroyer; gṛhītvā — taking; pāṇinā — with His hand; pāṇim — his hand; prahasan — smiling broadly; tam — to him; uvāca ha — said.
Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: After hearing Śrutadeva speak these words, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who relieves His surrendered devotees' distress, took Śrutadeva's hand in His own and, smiling, spoke to him as follows.
Ācārya Viśvanātha comments that Lord Kṛṣṇa took Śrutadeva's hand and smiled as a gesture of friendship, to tell Him, "Yes, you know the truth about Me, and I also know all about you. So now I will tell you something special."
