Bg 8.19

भूतग्रामः स एवायं भूत्वा भूत्वा प्रलीयते ।
रात्र्यागमेऽवशः पार्थ प्रभवत्यहरागमे ॥१९॥
bhūta-grāmaḥ sa evāyaṁ
bhūtvā bhūtvā pralīyate
rātry-āgame ‘vaśaḥ pārtha
prabhavaty ahar-āgame

bhūta-grāmaḥ—the aggregate of all living entities; saḥ—they; eva—certainly; ayam—this; bhūtvā bhūtvā—taking birth; pralīyate—annihilate; rātri—night; āgame—on arrival; avaśaḥ—automatically; pārtha—O son of Pṛthā; prabhavanti—manifest; ahaḥ—during daytime; āgame—on arrival. 

Again and again the day comes, and this host of beings is active; and again the night falls, O Pārtha, and they are helplessly dissolved.
