CC Madhya 16.10

āji-kāli kari’ uṭhāya vividha upāya
yāite sammati nā deya vicchedera bhaya
Word for word: 
āji-kāli kari’ — delaying today and tomorrow; uṭhāya — they put forward; vividha upāya — many devices; yāite — to go; sammati — permission; deya — did not give; vicchedera bhaya — because of fearing separation.
Translation: 
In this way they both presented many impediments, indirectly not granting the Lord permission to go to Vṛndāvana. They did this because they were afraid of separation from Him.
