George Sale rendition of Surah The Mansions of the Stars, The Constellations(al-Buruj)
85:1 By the heaven adorned with signs;
85:2 by the promised day of judgment;
85:3 by the witness, and the witnessed;
85:4 cursed were the contrivers of the pit,
85:5 of fire supplied with fuel;
85:6 when they sat round the same,
85:7 and were witnesses of what they did against the true believers:
85:8 And they afflicted them for no other reason, but because they believed in the mighty, the glorious God,
85:9 unto whom belongeth the kingdom of heaven and earth: And God is witness of all things.
85:10 Verily for those who persecute the true believers of either sex, and afterwards repent not, is prepared the torment of hell; and they shall suffer the pain of burning.
85:11 But for those who believe, and do that which is right, are destined gardens beneath which rivers flow: This shall be great felicity.
85:12 Verily the vengeance of thy Lord is severe.
85:13 He createth, and He restoreth to life:
85:14 He is inclined to forgive, and gracious:
85:15 The possessor of the glorious throne;
85:16 who effecteth that which He pleaseth.
85:17 Hath not the story of the hosts,
85:18 of Pharaoh, and of Thamud, reached thee?
85:19 Yet the unbelievers cease not to accuse the divine revelations of falsehood:
85:20 But God encompasseth them behind, that they cannot escape.
85:21 Verily that which they reject is a glorious Koran;
85:22 the original whereof is written in a table kept in heaven.
