And (remember) as your Lord said to the Angels, "Surely I am making in the earth a successor." They said, "Will You make therein one who will corrupt in it and shed blood (Literally: bloods) while we (are the ones who) extol (with) Your praise and call You Holy? Literally: hallow for you)" He said, "Surely I know whatever you do not know."

— Dr. Ghali

And when thy Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am about to place a viceroy in the earth, they said: Wilt thou place therein one who will do harm therein and will shed blood, while we, we hymn Thy praise and sanctify Thee? He said: Surely I know that which ye know not.

— Pickthall

Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said: "Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not."

— Yusuf Ali

Эсланг, (эй Муҳаммад алайҳис-салоту вас-салом), Парвардигорингиз фаришталарга: «Мен Ерда (Одамни) халифа қилмоқчиман», деганида улар айтдилар: «У Ерда бузғунчилик қиладиган, қонлар тўкадиган кимсани (халифа) қиласанми? Ҳолбуки, биз ҳамду сано айтиш билан Сени улуғлаймиз ва Сенинг номингни мудом пок тутамиз». (Аллоҳ) айтди: «Албатта Мен сизлар билмаган нарсаларни биламан».

— Alauddin Mansour

And [mention, O Muḥammad], when your Lord said to the angels, "Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority."1 They said, "Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we exalt You with praise and declare Your perfection?"2 He [Allah] said, "Indeed, I know that which you do not know."

— Saheeh International

Just think1 when your Lord said to the angels:2 “Lo! I am about to place a vicegerent3 on earth,” they said: “Will You place on it one who will spread mischief and shed blood4 while we celebrate Your glory and extol Your holiness?”5 He said: “Surely I know what you do not know.”6
