Ahmed Ali

Yet, in spite of this, your hearts only hardened like rocks or even harder, but among rocks are those from which rivers flow; and there are also those which split open and water gushes forth; as well as those that roll down for fear of God. And God is not negligent of all that you do.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (then, even after that) after bringing 'amil back to life and informing you about his murderer, (your hearts were hardened) dry and barren (and became as rocks, or worse than rock, for hardness. for indeed there are rocks from out which rivers gush, and indeed there are some which split asunder so that water floweth from them. and indeed there are some which fall down) from the top of mountains to the bottom (for the fear of allah) but your hearts are not moved by fear of allah. (allah is not unaware of) will not leave unpunished (what ye do) of transgressions; and it is said the meaning is: what you hide of transgression.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : then your hearts became hardened, o you jews, they [your hearts] became stiffened against acceptance of the truth, thereafter, that is, after what is mentioned of the bringing back to life of the slain man and the other signs before this; and they are like stones, in their hardness, or even yet harder, than these; for there are stones from which rivers come gushing, and others split (yashshaqqaq: the initial tā’ [of the root-form yatashaqqaq] has been assimilated with the shīn), so that water issues from them; and others come down, from on high, in fear of god, while your hearts are unmoved, unstirred and not humbled; and god is not heedless of what you do, but instead, he gives you respite until your time comes (ta‘malūna, ‘you do’: a variant reading has ya‘malūna, ‘they do’, indicating a shift to the third person address).
