Tafsir

But those to whom knowledge had been given, [knowledge] of what God had promised in the Hereafter, said, to them: 'Woe to you! (waylakum, is an expression of reprimand) God's reward, of the Paradise in the Hereafter, is better for him who believes and acts righteously, than what Korah has been given in this world; and none will obtain it, namely, the the Paradise that is given as a reward, except those who are steadfast', in [their adherence to] obedience and [refrain] from disobedience.
