Sura 16
Aya 23
لا جَرَمَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَعلَمُ ما يُسِرّونَ وَما يُعلِنونَ ۚ إِنَّهُ لا يُحِبُّ المُستَكبِرينَ

Yusuf Ali

Undoubtedly God doth know what they conceal, and what they reveal:1 verily He loveth not the arrogant.
  • Cf. 16:19, where the same words refer to man generally. Whether he conceals or reveals what is in his heart, God knows it, and as God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful, His grace is available as His highest favour if man will take it. Here the reference is to those who “refuse to know”, who reject God’s guidance out of arrogance. God “loveth not the arrogant”. Such men deprive themselves of God’s grace.
