Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

Rather they are [His] honoured servants.
27 They do not venture to speak ahead of Him,
and they act by His command.

and that which is behind them,
and they do not intercede
except for someone He approves of,
and they are apprehensive for the fear of Him.
29 Should any of them say,
‘I am a god besides Him,’
We will requite him with hell.

that the heavens and the earth were interwoven
and We unravelled them,
and We made every living thing out of water?
Will they not then have faith?
31 We set firm mountains in the earth
lest it should shake with them,
and We made broad ways in them
so that they may be guided [to their destinations].
32 We made the sky a preserved roof
and yet they are disregardful of its signs.
33 It is He who created the night and the day,
