Underlining Meaningful Passages In My Copy Of The Qur'an: Sūrah 2.40-48

Sūrah 2.40-48: "O Children of Israel! Call to mind the favor which I bestowed upon you, and fulfill your covenant with Me as I fulfill My covenant with you, and fear none but me. And believe in what I reveal, confirming the revelation which is with you, and be not the first to reject faith, nor sell My signs for a pittance, and fear me and me alone. And cover not truth with falsehood, nor conceal the truth when you know it. And be steadfast in prayer, practice regular chastity, and bow down your heads with those who bow down. Do you compel righteous conduct on the people, and forget to expect the same of yourself, yet still study the scripture? Will you not understand? No, seek Allah's help with patient perseverance and prayer. It is indeed hard, except to those who bring a humble spirit-- who bear in mind the certainty that they are to meet their Lord, and that they are to return to Him. O Children of Israel! Call to mind the favor which I bestowed upon you, and that I preferred you to all others. Then guard yourselves against a day when one soul shall not avail another, nor shall intercession be accepted for her, nor shall compensation be taken from her, nor shall anyone be helped from without.
