Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 2, Verse 35

Chapter 2: Contents of the Gita Summarized
Verse: 35
bhayad ranad uparatam
mamsyante tvam maha-rathah
yesham ca tvam bahu-mato
bhutva yasyasi laghavam

Translation:
The great generals who have highly esteemed your name and fame will think that you have left the battlefield out of fear only, and thus they will consider you insignificant.

Explanation:
Srila Prabhupada elaborates on this verdict by Krishna to Arjuna. "Do not think that the great generals like Duryodhana, Karna, and other contemporaries will think that you have left the battlefield out of compassion for your brothers and grandfather. They will think that you have left out of fear for your life. And thus their high estimation of your personality will go to hell."

Please read the Sanskrit Verse and the Prabhupada's Purport.
