Verse 29:11

وَلَيَـعۡلَمَنَّ اللّٰهُ الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا وَلَيَـعۡلَمَنَّ الۡمُنٰفِقِيۡنَ‏ 

God knows those who have chosen to believe, and He knows the hypocrites.

Verse 29:12

وَقَالَ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا لِلَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوا اتَّبِعُوۡا سَبِيۡلَـنَا وَلۡـنَحۡمِلۡ خَطٰيٰكُمۡ ؕ وَمَا هُمۡ بِحٰمِلِيۡنَ مِنۡ خَطٰيٰهُمۡ مِّنۡ شَىۡءٍ​ؕ اِنَّهُمۡ لَـكٰذِبُوۡنَ‏

Some deniers tell the believers, 'Follow our way and we will bear your faults.' Never in the least will they bear their faults. For sure, they are liars.

Verse 29:13

وَلَيَحۡمِلُنَّ اَ ثۡقَالَهُمۡ وَاَ ثۡقَالًا مَّعَ اَثۡقَالِهِمۡ​ وَلَـيُسۡــَٔـلُنَّ يَوۡمَ الۡقِيٰمَةِ عَمَّا كَانُوۡا يَفۡتَرُوۡنَ‏

They will bear their own burdens, and in addition, the burden of misleading others. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will be held accountable for the lies they invented.

Verse 29:14

وَلَقَدۡ اَرۡسَلۡنَا نُوۡحًا اِلٰى قَوۡمِهٖ فَلَبِثَ فِيۡهِمۡ اَ لۡفَ سَنَةٍ اِلَّا خَمۡسِيۡنَ عَامًا ؕ فَاَخَذَهُمُ الطُّوۡفَانُ وَهُمۡ ظٰلِمُوۡنَ‏

We sent Noah to his people and he lived among them a thousand years less fifty (his influence lasted 950 years.) The flood overwhelmed them, for they were violators of human rights. [Ancient texts and legends sometimes described the age of a great man according to how long his message or influence had lasted]

Verse 29:15

فَاَنۡجَيۡنٰهُ وَاَصۡحٰبَ السَّفِيۡنَةِ وَجَعَلۡنٰهَاۤ اٰيَةً لِّـلۡعٰلَمِيۡنَ‏ 

And We saved him and his followers on the ship and We made this a lesson for all people.

Verse 29:16

وَاِبۡرٰهِيۡمَ اِذۡ قَالَ لِقَوۡمِهِ اعۡبُدُوا اللّٰهَ وَاتَّقُوۡهُ​ ؕ ذٰ لِكُمۡ خَيۡرٌ لَّـكُمۡ اِنۡ كُنۡـتُمۡ تَعۡلَمُوۡنَ‏

(Abraham was sent more than a thousand years after Noah, at about the same location in Mesopotamia.) Abraham said to his people, 'Serve God and be mindful of Him. That will be best for you if you know and understand.

Verse 29:17

اِنَّمَا تَعۡبُدُوۡنَ مِنۡ دُوۡنِ اللّٰهِ اَوۡثَانًا وَّتَخۡلُقُوۡنَ اِفۡكًا​ ؕ اِنَّ الَّذِيۡنَ تَعۡبُدُوۡنَ مِنۡ دُوۡنِ اللّٰهِ لَا يَمۡلِكُوۡنَ لَـكُمۡ رِزۡقًا فَابۡتَغُوۡا عِنۡدَ اللّٰهِ الرِّزۡقَ وَاعۡبُدُوۡهُ وَاشۡكُرُوۡا لَهٗ ؕ اِلَيۡهِ تُرۡجَعُوۡنَ‏

You worship idols instead of God and spread false news about their powers. Those you worship instead of God (such as the priesthood of the temple) do not own your provision. (If you establish the Divine System), God will guarantee honorable provision for you. Then, serve Him alone and be grateful by sharing His bounties with others. Unto Him you shall be brought back.

Verse 29:18

وَاِنۡ تُكَذِّبُوۡا فَقَدۡ كَذَّبَ اُمَمٌ مِّنۡ قَبۡلِكُمۡ​ؕ وَمَا عَلَى الرَّسُوۡلِ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏

And if you reject (the message), so did communities before you (and suffered the consequences). The duty of the Messenger is only to convey the message clearly and publicly. [Balaaghil Mubeen = Convey clearly, openly, publicly]

Verse 29:19

اَوَلَمۡ يَرَوۡا كَيۡفَ يُبۡدِئُ اللّٰهُ الۡخَـلۡقَ ثُمَّ يُعِيۡدُهٗ ؕ اِنَّ ذٰ لِكَ عَلَى اللّٰهِ يَسِيۡرٌ‏

Do they not see how God originates creation, and then repeats it? This is easy for God. [Think of the emergence of organic matter, its decay and the reemergence of life]

Verse 29:20

قُلۡ سِيۡرُوۡا فِى الۡاَرۡضِ فَانْظُرُوۡا كَيۡفَ بَدَاَ الۡخَـلۡقَ​ ثُمَّ اللّٰهُ يُنۡشِئُ النَّشۡاَةَ الۡاٰخِرَةَ​ ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَىۡءٍ قَدِيۡرٌ​ۚ‏ 

Say, 'Travel on earth and find out how He originated creation. And how afterward, God brings forth entirely new forms. God is the Supreme Designer of all things.'
