But those who have disbelieved deny,

84:23 وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يُوعُونَ

And Allah is most knowing of what they keep within themselves.

84:24 فَبَشِّرْهُمْ بِعَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ

So give them tidings of a painful punishment,

Except for those who believe and do righteous deeds. For them is a reward uninterrupted.
