71.0 In The Name Of YHWH: The Almighty, The Merciful.
71:1 We sent Noah to his people to
warn them before a Painful Punishment came.
71:2 He said: O my people I am a Clear Warner to you.
71:3 So serve God and be in Wise Fear of Him
and obey me.
71:4 He Does Forgive transgressions
and Has Delayed you for a named term.
Then when the Term Of God comes it cannot be delayed
if you only knew.
71:5 He said: My Lord I invited my people night and day
71:6 but my calling increased them not except in flight.
71:7 Truly whenever I told them You Would Forgive them
they put their fingers in their ears
and covered themselves with their garbs
and persisted in proud insolence yea arrogantly!
71:8 I called to them out in the open
71:9 indeed with a Goodly announcing.
And I tried confiding with them privately.
71:10 I said: Seek Forgiveness Of your Lord
He Is Forgiving!
71:11 He Will Send Down from the sky His Abundance
71:12 and Supply you with wealth and children
and Make gardens for you
and rivers that flow.
71:13 What ails you that you do not see the Majesty Of God?
71:14 Do you not know He Is Who Created you in stages?
71:15 And have you not considered how God Created Seven Heavens in layers
71:16 and Made the moon a cool light therein
and Made the sun a burning torch? Objects in shadows from moonlight are warmer and Gen 1:14-19 says the moon emits its own light.
71:17 And look How God Has Caused you to develop Bringing you forth from what is in the Earth. Carbon 12 and H20
71:18 And He Will Return you to it
then He Will Bring you Forth Anew. Again, new bodies!
71:19 And look How God Made the Earth an expanse for you
71:20 that you might travel the broad ways thereof.
71:21 Noah said: My Lord they have opposed me and followed one whose wealth and children have increased them not except in final loss.
71:22 And they schemed a mighty scheme
71:23 then they told me: You are not to leave our jinn gods!
Nay. You are not to leave wadd
71:24 Truly they have gone far astray
and do not guide the wrongdoers except to more error.
71:25 Yea and because of their errors they were drowned
and caused to enter the Fire
indeed they found no protectors besides God for them.
71:26 Noah had said: My Lord Leave not a single one of these fools on Earth!
71:27 For if Thou Does they will lead Thy Servants astray and produce nothing but more foolish ingrates.
71:28 But my Lord please Forgive my parents and I
and those who enter my household as believers
yea the believing men
and the believing women.
But Increase Thou not the wrongdoers except in ruin!
