Chapter 64: On Stealing from a Brahmin:
King Nriga a Chameleon

(5) The lotus-eyed Supreme Lord, the Maintainer of the Universe, taking a look saw it
and picked it 
easily up with His left hand.

Chapter 65: Lord Balarāma in Vrindāvana
and the Stream Divided

(27)  The [goddess of the] Yamunā thus being chided, fell afraid at His feet, oh King, and spoke trembling the following words to the Yadu descendant [*]: (28)'Rāma, Balarāma, oh mighty armed soul, what do I know about Your prowess, oh Master of the Universe who with a single portion of Yourself [S'esha] upholds the earth?

(24-25) He with His flowers, with a single earring, mad with joy, carrying His Vaijayantī garland and with His smiling lotus-like face covered by beads of perspiration like it were snowflakes, then called for the Yamunā with the purpose to play in the water. But when the river thereupon ignored His drunken words and did not come, she was by Him angrily dragged with the tip of His plow. (26) 'Being called by Me, oh sinful one, you did not come. Because you, in disregard of Me, are moving about as you like, I shall bring you here with the tip of My plow in a hundred little streams!'

Chapter 66: The False Vāsudeva Paundraka and
His Son Consumed by Their Own Fire

(16) The enemies attacked the Lord with tridents, clubs and bludgeons,
pikes, blades, barbed missiles, lances, swords, axes and arrows.

Chapter 67: Balarāma Slays the Ape Dvivida

(2) S'rī S'uka said: 'There was a certain ape named Dvivida ['the two-faced one'], a friend of Naraka [or Bhaumāsura, see 10.59]. He was the mighty brother of Mainda and an advisor of Sugrīva [the monkey-chief, see also 9.10: 32, *]. (3) In order to avenge his friend [who was killed by Krishna] this ape wreaked havoc by setting fire to the cities, villages, mines and cowherd communities of the kingdom.

Chapter 68: The Marriage of Sāmba and the
Kuru City Dragged Trembling of His Anger

(40) Today I will rid the earth of the Kauravas!', and speaking thus He enraged took His plow and rose up as if to set fire to the three worlds.

(41) With the tip of His plow He infuriated pulled up the city of Hastināpura and dragged her along with the intention to throw her into the Ganges.
