सञ्जय उवाच

तं तथा कृपयाऽविष्टमश्रुपूर्णाकुलेक्षणम् ।
विषीदन्तमिदं वाक्यमुवाच मधुसूदनः ।।

sañjaya uvāca

taṃ tathā kṛpayā'viṣṭamaśrupūrṇākulekṣaṇam ।
viṣīdantamidaṃ vākyamuvāca madhusūdanaḥ ।।
मधुसूदन - killer of demon madhu, तथा - thus, कृपया - compassion, आविष्टं - enveloped, अश्रु - tears, पूर्णा - fully, आकुल​ - filled with, ईक्षणम् - eyes, विषीदन्तं - despairing, तं - to that arjuna, इदं - these, वाक्यं - words, उवाच - told
sañjaya describes again the start of 2nd adhyaya.

It means that no one else spoke anything of importance between the last shloka of previous chapter & first shloka of this chapter
Arjuna was overflowing with compassion (as already described in 1st chapter) & as a result, was in tears. He put down his famous bow kāṇḍīva​ & surrendered unto Krishna. The killer of demon Madhu started speaking..
madhusūdana shabda here denotes killer of madhu-kaitapa as well as the slayer of rajas & tamo gunas. (Which particularly got hold of Arjuna in the most crucial moment)
