प्रपूरवाक्यं स्वराङ्गं भवति शुद्धं ज्ञापेति सत्वान् सुसखिलश्लक्ष्णवाक्यो ।
न तस्य कोपि जने ईश्वरीयं उल्लोकनीयो भवति बहुजनस्य ॥ ६१९ ॥

prapūravākyaṃ svarāṅgaṃ bhavati śuddhaṃ jñāpeti satvān susakhilaślakṣṇavākyo |
na tasya kopi jane īśvarīyaṃ ullokanīyo bhavati bahujanasya || 619 ||

His rich voice becomes resonant and clear. In giving his commands to men he is friendly and gentle in tone. No one shall think of lording it over him. He becomes looked up to by the multitude. (619)
