CONSIDER the fig and the olive,
and Mount Sinai,
and this land secure! 1
Verily, We create man in the best conformation, 2
and thereafter We reduce him to the lowest of low - 3
excepting only such as attain to faith and do good works: and theirs shall be a reward unending!
What, then, [O man,] could henceforth cause thee to give the lie to this moral law? 4
Is not God the most just of judges?
