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

and it was said [to them],
‘Enter the Fire, along with those who enter [it].’
11 Allah draws an [other] example
for those who have faith:
the wife of Pharaoh, when she said,
‘My Lord! Build me a home near You in paradise,
and deliver me from Pharaoh and his conduct,
and deliver me from the wrongdoing lot.’
12 And Mary, daughter of Imran,
who guarded the chastity of her womb,
so We breathed into it of Our spirit.
She confirmed the words of her Lord
and His Books,
and she was one of the obedient.

[Part 29]

67. Sūrat al-Mulk 1

In the Name of Allah,
the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.

1 Blessed is He in whose hands is all sovereignty,
and He has power over all things.
2 He, who created death and life
that He may test you [to see]
which of you is best in conduct.
And He is the All-mighty, the All-forgiving.
3 He created seven heavens in layers.
You do not see
any discordance in the creation of the All-beneficent.

1 The sūrah takes its name from Divine sovereignty (mulk) mentioned in verse 1.
