;

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,
