Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah Noah(Nuh)
---
71:1 We sent Noah to his people, saying, 'Warn thy people, ere there come on them a painful chastisement.'
71:2 He said, 'O my people, I am unto you a clear warner,
71:3 saying, "Serve God, and fear Him, and obey you me,
71:4 and He will forgive you your sins, and defer you to a stated term; God's term, when it comes, cannot be deferred, did you but know."'
71:5 He said; 'My Lord, I have called my people by night and by day,
71:6 but my calling has only increased them in flight.
71:7 And whenever I called them, that Thou mightest forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears, and wrapped them in their garments, and persisted, and waxed very proud.
71:8 Then indeed I called them openly;
71:9 then indeed I spoke publicly unto them, and I spoke unto them secretly,
71:10 and I said, "Ask you forgiveness of your Lord; surely He is ever All-forgiving,
71:11 and He will loose heaven upon you in torrents
71:12 and will succour you with wealth and sons, and will appoint for you gardens, and will appoint for you rivers.
71:13 What ails you, that you look not for majesty in God,
71:14 seeing He created you by stages?
71:15 Have you not regarded how God created seven heavens one upon another,
71:16 and set the moon therein for a light and the sun for a lamp?
71:17 And God caused you to grow out of the earth,
71:18 then He shall return you into it, and bring you forth.
71:19 And God has laid the earth for you as a carpet,
71:20 that thereof you may thread ways, ravines."
71:21 Noah said, 'My Lord, they have rebelled against me, and followed him whose wealth and children increase him only in loss,
71:22 and have devised a mighty device
71:23 and have said, "Do not leave your gods, and do not leave Wadd, nor Suwa', Yaghuth, Ya'uq, neither Nasr."
71:24 And they have led many astray. Increase Thou not the evildoers save in error!'
71:25 And because of their transgressions they were drowned, and admitted into a Fire, for they found not, apart from God, any to help them.
71:26 And Noah said, 'My Lord, leave not upon the earth of the unbelievers even one.
71:27 Surely, if Thou leavest them, they will lead Thy servants astray, and will beget none but unbelieving libertines.
71:28 My Lord, forgive me and my parents and whosoever enters my house as a believer, and the believers, men and women alike; and do Thou not increase the evildoers save in ruin!'
