1 . By the heaven and the night-comer
2 . And what shall make thee know that which the night-comer is?-
3 . It is the star shing brightly.
4 . No soul is there but hath over it a watcher.
5 . So let man look - from what is he created.
6 . He is created from a water drip-ping,
7 . That issueth from between the loins and the breast-bones.
8 . Verily He is Able to restore him,
9 . On a Day whereon secrets shall be out.
10 . Then he shall have no power nor any helper.
11 . By the heaven which returneth,
12 . And by the earth which splitteth,
13 . Verily, it is a discourse distinguishing.
14 . And it is not a frivolity.
15 . Verily they are plotting a plot.
16 . And I am plotting a plot.
17 . So respite thou the infidels - respite them gently,
