98:1  Not would those who were ungrateful from among the People of the Book, nor the ones who are polytheists to be ones who set aside their beliefs until the clear portent approaches them:
98:2  A Messenger from God, who recounts to them purified scrolls
98:3  wherein are truth-loving Books.
98:4  Split up not among themselves those to whom the Book was given until after the clear portent drew near them.
98:5  They were commanded but to worship God as ones who are sincere and devoted in the way of life to Him, as monotheists and they perform the formal prayer and they give the purifying alms. That is the truth-loving way of life.
98:6  Truly, those who were ungrateful among the People of the Book and the ones who are polytheists will be in the fire of hell, ones who will dwell in it forever. Those are the worst of creatures.
98:7  But those who believed and did as the ones in accord with morality, those are the best of creatures.
98:8  Their recompense is with their Lord—Gardens of Eden, beneath which rivers run, ones who will dwell in them forever, eternally. God was well-pleased with them and they were well-pleased with Him. That is for him who dreaded his Lord.
