Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration, Word-for-word and English translation of verse 1.5.86:

दत्त्वा निष्कण्टकं राज्यं पाण्डवाः सुखिता इति ।
मत्वाधुना विहायास्मान् द्वारकायाम् अवस्थितम् ॥ ८६ ॥

dattvā niṣkaṇṭakaṃ rājyaṃ pāṇḍavāḥ sukhitā iti |
matvādhunā vihāyāsmān dvārakāyām avasthitam || 86 ||

“I have granted the kingdom without any obstruction to the Pāṇḍavas, therefore they are living happily.” Thinking like this, Śrī Kṛṣṇa abandoned us and now resides in the city of Dvārakā.

Commentary: Dig-darśinī-ṭīkā with Bhāvānuvāda

(By Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī himself including a deep purport of that commentary)

Why are you lamenting? Try to understand that Śrī Kṛṣṇa will very soon come here. Therefore Śrī Kuntī-devī is saying, “Śrī Kṛṣṇa has given ourselves the kingdom with no problems and now resides in Dvārakā without any anxiety. The reason for this is that no calamity will now befall upon us.”
