Verse 6.88.17

इति तस्मिन्स्थिते यातो मणिरुड्डीय सिद्धयः ।
त्यजन्ति ह्यवमन्तारं शरो गुणमिवोज्झितः ॥ १७ ॥

iti tasminsthite yāto maṇiruḍḍīya siddhayaḥ |
tyajanti hyavamantāraṃ śaro guṇamivojjhitaḥ || 17 ||

As the undetermined man hung in the balance of his suspicion, the precious gem flew away and vanished from his sight; as the merited man avoids his slighter, and as the shaft flies from its string or the stone from its sling.
