‘David, We have given you mastery over the land. Judge fairly between people. Do not follow your desires, lest they divert you from God’s path: those who wander from His path will have a painful torment because they ignore the Day of Reckoning.’

— Abdul Haleem

(And it was said unto him): O David! Lo! We have set thee as a viceroy in the earth; therefor judge aright between mankind, and follow not desire that it beguile thee from the way of Allah. Lo! those who wander from the way of Allah have an awful doom, forasmuch as they forgot the Day of Reckoning.

— Pickthall

O David! We did indeed make thee a vicegerent on earth: so judge thou between men in truth (and justice): Nor follow thou the lusts (of thy heart), for they will mislead thee from the Path of Allah: for those who wander astray from the Path of Allah, is a Penalty Grievous, for that they forget the Day of Account.

— Yusuf Ali

[Och Vi sade:] "David! Vi har gett dig makt och myndighet på jorden. Döm därför mellan människor med sanning och rättvisa och låt dig inte påverkas av känslor [för eller emot en part]; då kan du lockas att överge Guds väg. Och ett strängt straff väntar dem som avviker från Guds väg och glömmer Räkenskapens dag."

— Knut Bernström

¡Oh, David! Te he designado gobernante en la Tierra, juzga con equidad entre la gente y no sigas las pasiones, pues ellas desvían del sendero de Dios; y quienes se desvíen del sendero de Dios sepan que recibirán un castigo severo por haberse olvidado del Día del Juicio.

— Sheikh Isa Garcia

Davide, My učinili jsme tebe zástupcem na zemi, rozsuzuj tedy mezi lidmi podle pravdy! Nenásleduj vášně své, jež by tě svedly z cesty Boží, vždyť věru ty, kdož z cesty Boží sejdou, trest strašný čeká za to, že zapomněli na den zúčtování.

— Czech

Эй Довуд, дарҳақиқат, Биз сени Ерда халифа қилдик. Бас, сен (нафс) хоҳишига эргашиб кетмагин! Акс ҳолда у сени Аллоҳнинг йўлидан оздирур. Албатта Аллоҳ йўлидан озадиган кимсалар учун ҳисоб-китоб кунини (яъни, Қиёматни) унутиб қўйганлари сабабли қаттиқ азоб бордир.

— Alauddin Mansour

«David, Vi innsetter deg som en fullmektig på jorden! Så døm rett mellom menneskene, og følg ikke egne ideer, så det fører deg bort fra Guds vei. De som vandrer bort fra Guds vei, har streng straff i vente, fordi de har glemt regnskapets dag.»

— Norwegian

¡David! Te hemos hecho sucesor en la tierra. ¡Decide, pues, entre los hombres según justicia! ¡No sigas la pasión! Si no, te extraviará del camino de Alá. Quienes se extravíen del camino de Alá tendrán un severo castigo. Por haber olvidado el día de la Cuenta.

— Julio Cortes

"Ô David, Nous avons fait de toi un calife sur la terre. Juge done en toute équité parmi les gens et ne suis pas la passion: sinon elle t’égarera du sentier d’Allah." Car ceux qui s’égarent du sentier d’Allah auront un dur chiâtiment pour avoir oublié le Jour des Comptes.

— French Translation(Muhammad Hamidullah)

[We said], "O David, indeed We have made you a successor upon the earth, so judge between the people in truth and do not follow [your own] desire, as it will lead you astray from the way of Allah." Indeed, those who go astray from the way of Allah will have a severe punishment for having forgotten the Day of Account.

— Saheeh International

(We said to him): “O David, We have appointed you vicegerent on earth. Therefore, rule among people with justice and do not follow (your) desire lest it should lead you astray from Allah's Path. Allah's severe chastisement awaits those who stray away from Allah's Path, for they had forgotten the Day of Reckoning.1
