Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration, Word-for-word and English translation of Īśa-upaniṣad mantra 10:

अन्यदेवाहुर्विद्ययान्यदाहुरविद्यया ।
इति शुश्रुम धीराणां ये नस्तद्विचचक्षिरे ॥ १० ॥

anyadevāhurvidyayānyadāhuravidyayā |
iti śuśruma dhīrāṇāṃ ye nastadvicacakṣire || 10 ||

anyat—different, one thing; devaloka—partial liberation; The means of liberation is different—is something else than mere vidyā; eva—even, truly, verily, indeed; āhuḥ—they say; The Upaniṣads declare. vidyayā—from vidyā, from knowledge devoid of practice; anyat—one thing, different, is the means of liberation, partial; āhuḥ—they say; avidyayā—from avidyā or practice without knowledge; iti—thus; śūśrumaḥ—we have heard; dhīrāṇām—from the wise, of the steadfast sages; ye—who; naḥ—us; tat—that; vicacakṣire—explained, taught.

10. One thing they say is verily obtained from vidyā, another thing they say from avidyā: thus have we heard from the wise who explained that to us.
