Translation

It is He Who begins (the process of) creation; then repeats it; and for Him it is most easy. To Him belongs the loftiest similitude (we can think of) in the heavens and the earth: for He is Exalted in Might, full of wisdom.

Tafsir

And He it is Who initiates the creation, of mankind, then brings it back, after their destruction, and that is [even] easier for Him, than the initiation - from the perspective of those addressed for whom to repeat something is easier than doing it for the first time - otherwise, in God's case, exalted be He, both are just as easy. His is the loftiest description in the skies and the earth, the most sublime attribute, namely that 'there is no god except God'. And He is the Mighty, in His kingdom, the Wise, in His creation.
