Let people then consider what they were created from!
٦
˹They were˺ created from a spurting fluid,
٧
stemming from between the backbone and the ribcage.1
٨
Surely He is fully capable of bringing them back ˹to life˺
٩
on the Day all secrets will be disclosed.
١٠
Then one will have neither power nor ˹any˺ helper.
١١
By the sky with its recurring cycles,
١٢
and the earth with its sprouting plants!
١٣
Surely this ˹Quran˺ is a decisive word,
١٤
and is not to be taken lightly.
١٥
They are certainly devising ˹evil˺ plans,
١٦
but I too am planning.
١٧
So bear with the disbelievers ˹O Prophet˺. Let them be for ˹just˺ a little while.
