40. Knowest thou not that to God (alone) belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the

earth? He punisheth whom He pleaseth, and He forgiveth whom He pleaseth: and God

hath power over all things.

41. O Apostle! let not those grieve thee, who race each other into unbelief: (whether it be)

among those who say "We believe" with their lips but whose hearts have no faith; or it be

among the Jews,- men who will listen to any lie,- will listen ev en to others who have

never so much as come to thee. They change the words from their (right) times and

places: they say, "If ye are given this, take it, but if not, beware!" If any one's trial is

intended by God, thou hast no authority in the least for him against God. For such - it is

not God's will to purify their hearts. For them there is disgrace in this world, and in the

Hereafter a heavy punishment.
