येषां च पापकं कर्म अविपक्वं पुरा कृतं ।
न ते लभन्ति निर्गन्तुं निरयात् कर्मप्रत्यया ॥ ६२ ॥

yeṣāṃ ca pāpakaṃ karma avipakvaṃ purā kṛtaṃ |
na te labhanti nirgantuṃ nirayāt karmapratyayā || 62 ||

But as their sinful karma has not borne all its fruit, through the effect of this karma they do not win a way out of hell. (62)
