70. Leave alone those who take their religion to be mere play and amusement, and are

deceived by the life of this world. But proclaim (to them) this (truth): that every soul

delivers itself to ruin by its own acts: it will find for itself no protec tor or intercessor

except God: if it offered every ransom, (or reparation), none will be accepted: such is (the

end of) those who deliver themselves to ruin by their own acts: they will have for drink

(only) boiling water, and for punishment, one most grievous: for they persisted in

rejecting God.
