Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration, Word-for-word and English translation of verse 1.3.19-20:

श्री-परीक्षिद् उवाच—
परमानन्दितो धृत्वा पादयोर् उपवेश्य तम् ।
नारदः परितुष्टाव कृष्ण-भक्ति-रस-प्लुतम् ॥ १९ ॥
श्री-नारद उवाच—
नापराधावकाशस् ते प्रेयसः कश्चिद् अच्युते ।
कदाचिल् लोक-दृष्ट्यापि जातो नास्मिन् प्रकाशते ॥ २० ॥

śrī-parīkṣid uvāca
paramānandito dhṛtvā pādayor upaveśya tam |
nāradaḥ parituṣṭāva kṛṣṇa-bhakti-rasa-plutam || 19 ||
śrī-nārada uvāca
nāparādhāvakāśas te preyasaḥ kaścid acyute |
kadācil loka-dṛṣṭyāpi jāto nāsmin prakāśate || 20 ||

Śrī Parīkṣit said: Hearing this, Śrī Nārada became ecstatic. Catching hold of the lotus feet of Śrī Śiva, who is always submerged in the devotional mellows of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, Nārada made him sit down upon an elevated āsana and began to honor him

Śrī Nārada said: You are especially dear to Śrī Kṛṣṇa, so there is no scope of time to commit any offense against Him. Although this may occur in the vision of common people, it cannot happen in Śrī Kṛṣṇa’s vision.
