Translation

As to those who reject Faith, and die rejecting,- never would be accepted from any such as much gold as the earth contains, though they should offer it for ransom. For such is (in store) a penalty grievous, and they will find no helpers.

Tafsir

Surely those who disbelieve, and die disbelieving, the whole earth full, the amount needed to fill it up, of gold shall not be accepted from any one of them (the faa' [of fa-lan yuqbala, 'it shall not be accepted'] has been included in the predicate of the inna clause, because the statement about alladheena, 'those [who disbelieve]', resembles a conditional statement; and as a declaration of the reason for it [repentance] not being acceptable in the case of one who dies in unbelief) if he would ransom himself thereby; for them awaits a painful chastisement (aleem is [the same as] mu'lim, 'painful'), and they shall have no helpers, to protect them from it.
