             nAcciyAr tirumozhi IV-kUDal izhaittal
      pASuram 4.7 (fourth tirumozhi - pAsuram 7 anRu innAdana)

A. Translation from SrImAn SaDagOpan's tamizh treatise:

In the seventh pASuram, godai continues to praise the 
valorous deeds of kaNNan: He destroyed SiSupAlan, who 
had committed untold atrocities in his life.  He felled 
the twin marudam trees that were in His way.  He conquered 
the seven bullocks that stood in the way of marrying 
nappinai, and also baKASuran who came in the form of a 
crane to devour young kr*shNa. He destroyed the all-powerful 
kamsan in front of everyone. godai appeals to kUDal to give 
a good omen if it be true that kaNNan will be united with her.

anRu innAdana sei SiSUpAlanum
 ninRa nIL marudum erudum puLLum
venRi vEl viRal kanjanum vIzha mun
 konRavan varil kUDiDu kUDalE

B. Some additional thoughts:

anRu innAdana sei SiSUpAlanum: The reference here is 
that SiSupAlan did everything that was unpleasant to rukmiNi 
when her marriage was being contemplated.  His acts, words, 
and deeds were so distasteful that they have been described 
as "pala nAzham Sollip pazhitta SiSupAlan", "kEtpAr Sevi SuDu 
kIzhmai vaSavugaLE vaiyum, SEtpAl pazham pagaivan SiSupAlan", 
etc.  (SrI PBA's comments).

ANDAL continues to describe the leelA-s of kr*shNa in the 
next two pASurams; however, in the current pASUram she names 
some of the worst enemies whom He had overcome.  In the next 
PASurams, she describes some of His qualities of dayA to His 

sarvam SrIman nArAyaNAyEti samarpayAmi.
