Sura 7
Aya 165
فَلَمّا نَسوا ما ذُكِّروا بِهِ أَنجَينَا الَّذينَ يَنهَونَ عَنِ السّوءِ وَأَخَذنَا الَّذينَ ظَلَموا بِعَذابٍ بَئيسٍ بِما كانوا يَفسُقونَ

Muhammad Asad

And thereupon, when those [sinners] had forgotten all that they had been told to take to heart, We saved those who had tried to prevent the doing of evil,1 and overwhelmed those who had been bent on evildoing with dreadful suffering for all their iniquity;
  • Lit., "who were forbidding the evil".
