Literal
(Word by Word)
 I will turn away from My Signs those who are arrogant in the earth without [the] right; and if they see every sign, they will not believe in it. And if they see (the) way (of) the righteousness, they will not take it (as) a way, but if they see (the) way (of) [the] error, they will take it (as) a way. That (is) because they denied Our Signs and they were of them heedless. zoom
