(1) By the sky and the Nightcomer!
(2) What will make you realize what the Nightcomer is?
(3) The star shining [before dawn]!
(4) Each soul has a guardian [set up] over it,
(5) so let everyman notice what he has been created from.
(6) He was created from a fluid ejected
(7) from between his backbone and his ribs.
(8) He is Able to revive him
(9) on a day when secrets will be tested;
(10) so he will have no strength [left] nor any supporter.
(11) By the sky with its cycle,
(12) by the earth cracking open,
(13) it is a decisive statement!
(14) It is no joke.
(15) They are hatching some plot
(16) while I too am hatching a plot;
(17) so put up with disbelievers; put up with them as long as you can!
