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

so that We may manifest [Our power] to you.
We establish in the wombs whatever We wish
for a specified term,

yet when We send down water upon it,
it stirs and swells,
and grows every delightful kind [of plant].

and it is He who revives the dead,
and He has power over all things,
7 and the Hour is bound to come,

and Allah will resurrect those who are in the graves.
8 Among the people are those who dispute
concerning Allah
without any knowledge or guidance,
or an enlightening Book,
9 turning aside disdainfully
to lead [others] astray from the way of Allah.

and on the Day of Resurrection We will make him taste
the punishment of the burning:
