śrī-śukaḥ uvāca — Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said; iti — thus; vairocaneḥ — of the son of Virocana; vākyam — the words; dharma-yuktam — in terms of religious principles; saḥ — He; sū-nṛtam — very pleasing; niśamya — hearing; bhagavān — the Supreme Personality of Godhead; prītaḥ — completely pleased; pratinandya — congratulating him; idam — the following words; abravīt — said.
Śukadeva Gosvāmī continued: When the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Vāmanadeva, heard Bali Mahārāja speaking in this pleasing way, He was very satisfied, for Bali Mahārāja had spoken in terms of religious principles. Thus the Lord began to praise him.
