Dutch to English translations [Non-PRO]
Art/Literary - Religion / Koranic text
Dutch term or phrase: voornemen
this is from a writer's interpretation of The Pen (Sura 68 of the Koran). It's the very last word of the excerpt, 'voornemen'. Thanks for any advice!
6.
Zo straffen We de ongelovigen in dit leven. En de straf na de dood zal nog erger zijn. Maar voor de vrome mensen zijn er de tuinen van geluk.
Nee, Wij zullen de gelovigen niet gelijk behandelen als de ongelovigen.

Mohammad zeg tegen hen: ‘Wat is er gebeurd met jullie, waarom doen jullie zulke dingen? Hebben jullie misschien geen boek waarin jullie het allemaal kunnen lezen?’
Laat de ongelovigen aan Ons over.
Wij zullen hen geruisloos vernietigen.
Wij geven hen nu nog de ruimte om te doen wat ze willen.
Maar Ons voornemen.

Explanation:
Hi. I did a quick search and found this link to an English "translation" of the Koran. Link is to Sura 68, and offers three English versions of the same text. I had a quick look but couldn't find anything similar to Ons Voornemen, maybe you can.
