38:3  How many generations have We destroyed before them, then they called out when it was too late to escape.

38:6  And their leaders urge them on: go and help your gods, this is what is needed.
38:7  We haven´t heard of this in any other religion, this is an invention.
38:8  Has the reminder been revealed to him from amongst us? But they are in doubt about My reminder. But they have not yet tasted My punishment.

38:11  The forces of the allies will be defeated in this.
38:12  The people of Nuh (Noah) and ´Ad and the Pharaoh with all his monuments denied before them.
38:13  And Thamud and the people of Lut (Lot) and the inhabitants of the woodlands (al-Ayka); those were the allies.
38:14  Each of them denied the messengers, so the punishment came to pass.
38:15  And these are only waiting for a single scream, which cannot be prevented.

38:19  And the assembled birds all returned to him.
38:20  And We strengthened his kingdom and gave him wisdom and the power of speech.
38:21  And has the information of the antagonists reached you when they climbed up to the secluded area?
38:22  When they entered upon Dawud (David) and he was startled by them. They said: don´t be afraid, we are two antagonists one of whom has transgressed against the other, so judge between us with the truth and do not deviate and guide us to the level path.
38:23  For this brother of mine has ninety-nine sheep and I have one sheep, so he said: entrust it to me, and he overpowered me in speech.
38:24  He said: he has wronged you by asking for your sheep to be added to his sheep, and many partners transgress against each other except those who believe and do good work, and they are few. And Dawud (David) knew that We had tested him and asked his Lord for forgiveness and went down in prostration and repented.
38:25  So We forgave him that, and he will be close to Us and have a good return.
38:26  Oh Dawud (David), We have made you a representative on earth, so judge between people with the truth and do not follow desire to lead you astray from the way of Allah, for those who lead away from the way of Allah will have a severe punishment for having forgotten the day of reckoning.
38:27  And We did not create the heaven and the earth and what is between them without purpose. That is the assumption of those who reject (the truth), so woe to those who reject (the truth) from the fire.

38:34  And We tested Sulayman (Solomon) and placed a (mere) body onto his throne, then he repented.
38:35  He said: my Lord, forgive me and grant me a kingdom which will not befit anyone after me, for you are the generous.
38:36  Then We made the wind of service to him to travel by his command willingly wherever he directed it.

38:74  Except Iblis (the devil), he was arrogant and was of those who rejected (the truth).
38:75  He said: oh Iblis, what prevented you from prostrating to what I created with both My hands? Have you become arrogant or were you proud?
