Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda
In the midst of the dancing gopīs, Lord Kṛṣṇa appeared most brilliant, like an exquisite sapphire in the midst of golden ornaments.
Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura states that Devakī, besides being the name of Vasudeva's wife, is also a name of mother Yaśodā, as stated in the Adi Purāṇa: dve nāmnī nanda-bhāryāyā yaśodā devakīti ca. "The wife of Nanda has two names—Yaśodā and Devakī."
