Translation

It is Allah Who has sent down the Book in Truth, and the Balance (by which to weigh conduct). And what will make thee realise that perhaps the Hour is close at hand?

Tafsir

God it is Who has revealed the Book, Al-Qur'an, with the truth (bi'l-haqqi is semantically connected to anzala, 'revealed') as well as the Balance, Justice. And what do you know - perhaps the Hour, that is, its arrival, is near! (la'alla, 'perhaps', comments on the verb describing the action, with what follows it functioning as two direct objects).
