These only wait for a single Shout for which there will be no delay. (15) They say: Our Lord! Hasten on for us our fate before the Day of Reckoning. (16) Bear patiently what they say, and remember Our servant David, the man of might; he was a penitent. (17) We made the mountains join him in glorifying Us at sunset and sunrise; (18) and the birds, too, in their flocks, and turn again and again to celebrating Allah's glory. (19) We made his kingdom strong and gave him Al-Hikmah (Prophethood, etc.) and sound judgement in speech and decision. (20) ۞ Have you heard the news of the disputing parties who climbed the walls of the prayer room (21) When they entered in upon Dawood and he was frightened at them, they said: Fear not; two litigants, of whom one has acted wrongfully towards the other, therefore decide between us with justice, and do not act unjustly, and guide us to the right way. (22) 'Behold, this my brother has ninety-nine ewes, and I have one ewe. So he said, "Give her into my charge"; and he overcame me in the argument.' (23) [Dawud (David)] said (immediately without listening to the opponent): "He has wronged you in demanding your ewe in addition to his ewes. And, verily, many partners oppress one another, except those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and they are few." And Dawud (David) guessed that We have tried him and he sought Forgiveness of his Lord, and he fell down prostrate and turned (to Allah) in repentance. ۩ (24) So We forgave him that, and verily, for him is a near access to Us, and a good place of (final) return (Paradise). (25) We told him. "David, We have appointed you as Our deputy on earth so judge among the people with truth. Do not follow (worldly) desires lest you go astray from the way of God. Those who go astray from the way of God will suffer severe torment for forgetting the Day of Reckoning. (26)
