Here you can read various translations of verse 135
Say, “O my people, work according to your position; [for] indeed, I am working. And you are going to know who will have succession in the home. Indeed, the wrongdoers will not succeed.
Say: “O my people! Do whatever ye can: I will do (my part): soon will ye know who it is whose end will be (best) in the Hereafter: certain it is that the wrong-doers will not prosper.”
Say (O Muhammad!): ‘O people! Work in your place; and I too am at work. Soon you will know in whose favour the ultimate decision will be. Surely the wrong-doers will not prosper.’
Say (O Muhammad SAW): “O my people! Work according to your way, surely, I too am working (in my way), and you will come to know for which of us will be the (happy) end in the Hereafter. Certainly the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.) will not be successful.
Say (O Muhammad): O my people! Work according to your power. Lo! I too am working. Thus ye will come to know for which of us will be the happy sequel. Lo! the wrong-doers will not be successful.
Say, “O my people, act (Literally: do) according to your situation; surely I am acting. Then eventually you will know who will have the (ultimate) End (i.e., Paradise) of the Residence! Sure it is (that) the unjust will not prosper.”
[Prophet], say, ‘My people, you carry on as you are, and so will I: you will come to realize who will have a happy homecoming in the Hereafter.’ The evildoers will not prosper.
آپ یہ فرما دیجئے کہ اے میری قوم! تم اپنی حالت پر عمل کرتے رہو میں بھی عمل کررہا ہوں، سو اب جلد ہی تم کو معلوم ہوا جاتا ہے کہ اس عالم کا انجام کار کس کے لیے نافع ہوگا۔ یہ یقینی بات ہے کہ حق تلفی کرنے والوں کو کبھی فلاح نہ ہوگی

(6:135) Say (O Muhammad!): ‘O people! Work in your place; and I too am at work.  Soon you will know in whose favour the ultimate decision will be. Surely the wrong-doers will not prosper.’
103. If people prefer to ignore the Prophet’s admonition and do not recant their misconduct, they are at liberty to follow their chosen path, but they should let the Prophet (peace be on him) follow his. The ultimate results of their conduct will, in due time, become evident to all – to the Prophet (peace be on him) as well as to his opponents.
