The people of Noah denied before them and the [disbelieving] factions after them, and every nation intended [a plot] for their messenger to seize him, and they disputed by [using] falsehood to [attempt to] invalidate thereby the truth. So I seized them, and how [terrible] was My penalty.
But (there were people) before them, who denied (the Signs),- the People of Noah, and the Confederates (of Evil) after them; and every People plotted against their prophet, to seize him, and disputed by means of vanities, therewith to condemn the Truth; but it was I that seized them! and how (terrible) was My Requital!
Before them the people of Noah also gave the lie (to Messengers), and so did many parties after them.

Then I seized them; and behold, how woeful was My retribution!
The people of Nuh (Noah) and the confederates after them denied (their Messengers) before these, and every (disbelieving) nation plotted against their Messenger to seize him, and disputed by means of falsehood to refute therewith the truth.

قوم نوح نے اور ان کے بعد کے گروہوں نے بھی جھٹلایا تھا۔ اور ہر امت نے اپنے رسول کو گرفتار کر لینے کا اراده کیا اور باطل کے ذریعہ کج بحثیاں کیں، تاکہ ان سے حق کو بگاڑ دیں پس میں نے ان کو پکڑ لیا، سو میری طرف سے کیسی سزا ہوئی
