Nor do these await aught but a single cry, there being no delay in it. (15) And they say: O our Lord! hasten on to us our portion before the day of reckoning. (16) Bear with their words patiently. Remember Our servant David, a man of strength who always turned to Us: (17) Surely We made the mountains to sing the glory (of Allah) in unison with him at the evening and the sunrise, (18) We made the birds assemble around him in flocks. (19) So We further strengthened his kingdom, and bestowed wisdom on him, and judgement in legal matters. (20) ۞ Has the tiding of the dispute come to thee? When they scaled the Sanctuary, (21) As they came upon David, and he shrank back in fear from them, they said: "Fear not! [We are but] two litigants. One of us has wronged the other: so judge thou between us with justice, and deviate not from what is right, and show [both of] us the way to rectitude. (22) One of them said, "This is my brother who has ninety-nine ewes when I have only one. He has demanded me to place that one in his custody; he had the stronger argument". (23) He (David) replied: 'He has without doubt wronged you in seeking to add your ewe to his sheep. Many intermixers wrong one another; except those who believe, and do good works, and they are few indeed' David realized that We had tried him and sought the forgiveness of his Lord and fell down, prostrate and repented. ۩ (24) So, We forgave him that, and he has a near place with Us and a fine return. (25) (And it was said unto him): O David! Lo! We have set thee as a viceroy in the earth; therefor judge aright between mankind, and follow not desire that it beguile thee from the way of Allah. Lo! those who wander from the way of Allah have an awful doom, forasmuch as they forgot the Day of Reckoning. (26)
