Yusuf Ali: (O Unbelievers!) if ye prayed for victory and judgment, now hath the judgment come to you: if ye desist (from wrong), it will be bestfor you: if ye return (to the attack), so shall We. Not the least good willyour forces be to you even if they were multiplied: for verily Allah is withthose who believe!

Pickthal: Had Allah known of any good in them He would have made them hear, but had He made them hear they would have turned away, averse.
Shakir: And if Allah had known any good in them He would have made them hear, and if He makes them hear they would turnback while they withdraw.
