BHAGAVAD-GITA AS IT IS 18.17. Comparing V1 and V2

V1 One who is not motivated by false ego, whose intelligence is not entangled, though he kills men in this world, is not the slayer. Nor is he bound by his actions.

 

V2 One who is not motivated by false ego, whose intelligence is not entangled, though he kills men in this world, does not kill. Nor is he bound by his actions.

In the word for word, “hanti” is a verb and is translated as “kills” . So HHJDS seems to be correct. One may also think there should be a coma separating the two sentences, instead of a full stop. But there exists already three comas in the first sentence and that’ s enough! So both versions are correct in that regard. (HHJDS stands for His Holiness Jayadvaita Swami)
