Alexander Ross, The Alcoran of Mahomet, translated out of Arabick into French, by the Sieur Du Ryer, Lord of Malezair, and resident for the French king, at Alexandria. And newly Englished, for the satisfaction of all that desire to look into the Turkish vanities. (1649)

but ye shall have no inclination to follow it, if it please God, the Lord of the Universe.

CHAP. LXXXII.

The Chapter of the opening of Heaven, containing seventeen Verses, written at Mecca.

IN the name of God, gracious and merciful. The souls shall know the good and the evil that they have done, when the heavens shall open, the stars fall, the seas be gathered together, and the sepulchres be opened. O man, what maketh thee so proud, as to rise against God, who hath created thee, who hath formed and proportioned thee after what manner he pleased? O ye wicked! ye will not believe the day of Judgment: there are Angels that observe your actions, and are obedient to God. The just shall go into Paradise, and the unjust be precipitated into the fire of hell, whence they shall never return. I will not tell when the day of Judgment shall be; that day none shall be able to succour his neighbour, and God alone shall command.

CHAP. LXXXIII.

The Chapter of Them that weigh with false weights, containing thirty six Verses, written at Mecca.

IN the Name of God, gracious and merciful. They that weigh with false weights, and measure with false measures, believe not to rise again, at the day when all the world shall appear before God to be judged: Certainly the book wherein the sins of the wicked are written, is kept in hell. Misery shall be upon Infidels at the day of Judgment; none doubteth the coming of this day but the wicked: when they hear the Commandments of God preached, they say, that it is but an old fable, impiety
