Translation

When We bestow favours on man, he turns away, and gets himself remote on his side (instead of coming to Us); and when evil seizes him, (he comes) full of prolonged prayer!

Tafsir

And when We bestow graces upon man (insaan, the generic noun [is meant]), he shows disregard, of giving thanks, and turns aside, turns his head in arrogance (a variant reading [for naa'a] has na'aa); but when ill befalls him, he makes prolonged supplications.
