And if they give thee the lie - even so, before thy time, have [other] apostles been given the lie when they came with all evidence of the truth, and with books of divine wisdom, and with light-giving revelation.
"Should they disbelieve you and think you convey a false message; they had already refused credence to Messengers sent before you; who were sent to them with clear and plain revelations and signs, Scriptures and Psalms guiding out of darkness and superstition of later times and out of want of spiritual and intellectual sight into illumination and enlightenment".
(O Messenger!) If they deny you, (do not grieve!) For in the same way Messengers were denied before you, who came with the clear proofs (of their Messengership), Scrolls (full of wisdom and advice), and the Book (the Torah and the Gospel) enlightening (their mind and hearts, and) illuminating (their way).
So, in case they cry lies to you, then lies were cried to Messengers before you (who) came with the supreme evidences, and the Scriptures, (Zubur, pI. of Zabur, sometimes understood as the Psalms) and the Enlightening Book.
Never mind, If they (those who adhere to Scripture) reject you; they rejected many Prophets before you who came with undeniable miracles and brought Psalm and enlightening Scriptures.
So O dear Prophet (Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) if they are denying you, Noble Messengers who came before you had also been denied, who had come with clear signs and Scriptures and the clear Book.
Hasan Al-Fatih Qaribullah
If they belie you (Prophet Muhammad), indeed other Messengers before you were belied who came with clear proofs, and the Psalms, and the Illuminating Book.
If they reject you, messengers before you have been rejected, even though they brought proofs, the Psalms, and the enlightening scripture.
Ahmed Raza Khan (Barelvi)
So O dear Prophet (Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him) if they are denying you, Noble Messengers who came before you had also been denied, who had come with clear signs and Scriptures and the clear Book.
But if they cry lies to you (you need not be disheartened) even so lies were cried to many Messengers before you, who came with clear signs, with the Books full of wisdom and with the glorious Scripture.
If they accuse thee of imposture, the apostles before thee have also been accounted impostors, who brought evident demonstrations, and the scriptures, and the book which enlighteneth the understanding.
Then, if they charge you with falsehood, before your time other messengers were also charged with falsehood when they came with clear evidence of the truth, and books of Divine wisdom and with the light-giving revelation.
Sayyed Abbas Sadr-Ameli
Then, if they reject you, messengers before you have already been rejected while they came even with clear arguments; and the Psalms and the Enlightening Book.
