Translation

And in the earth are tracts (diverse though) neighbouring, and gardens of vines and fields sown with corn, and palm trees - growing out of single roots or otherwise: watered with the same water, yet some of them We make more excellent than others to eat. Behold, verily in these things there are signs for those who understand!

Tafsir

And on the earth are tracts, diverse terrains, neighbouring each other, joined side by side, some good, some briny, some of little yield and some fruitful - and these constitute proofs of His power, exalted be He - and the Paradises, orchards, of vines and sown fields (read zar'un, in the nominative, as a supplement to jannaatun, 'the Paradises', or read zar'in, in the genitive, [as a supplement] to a'naabin, 'of vines'); similarly [constituting proofs of His power are] His words: and date-palms sharing one root (sinwaan is the plural of sinw, which are date-palms belonging to the same root, but with many offshoots) and date-palms otherwise, [each] of individual root, watered (read tusqaa as [referring to] jannaat, 'the Paradises', and what is in them, or read yusqaa as [referring to] the mentioned [date-palms]) by the same [source of] water; and We make some of them to excel (wa-nufaddil, or read wa-yufaddil, 'and He [God] makes [some of them] to excel') others in flavour (read fee'l-ukul or fee'l-ukl): and so some are sweet, others, bitter - and these are [also] proofs of His power, exalted be He. Surely in that, which is mentioned, are signs for a people who understand, [who] reflect.
