١٥. وَاسْتَفْتَحُوا وَخَابَ كُلُّ جَبَّارٍ عَنِيدٍ
15. Waistaftahoo wakhaba kullu jabbarin AAaneedin
And they requested victory from Allah, and disappointed, [therefore], was every obstinate tyrant.
Then (the apostles) asked of God's assistance, and every arrogant tyrant was frustrated:
And they sought a decision, and every stubborn rebel was destroyed.
They sought a judgment; then was disappointed every froward tyrant --
And they besought judgment, and disappointed was every tyrant obstinate.
But they (the Messengers) sought victory and help [from their Lord (Allah)], and every obstinate, arrogant dictator (who refuses to believe in the Oneness of Allah) was brought to a complete loss and destruction.
And they prayed for victory, and every stubborn tyrant came to disappointment.
They sought Our judgement. And (thanks to that judgement) every obstinate tyrant opposed to the Truth was brought to naught.
And they sought victory and help; and every obstinate, arrogant dictator (who refuses to believe in the Oneness of Allah) was brought to a complete loss and destruction.
And they sought help (from their Lord) and every froward potentate was bought to naught;
They prayed for victory [against the infidels], and every obstinate tyrant was defeated,
They sought a judgment, then every tyrant was disappointed.
They prayed for victory and the haughty transgressors were defeated.
And they asked for judgment and every insolent opposer was disappointed:
When they sought Our Judgement, every stubborn oppressor was frustrated.
But they sought victory and decision (there and then), and frustration was the lot of every powerful obstinate transgressor.
