26. They will know tomorrow who the wicked liar is.
27. We are sending the she-camel as a test for them. So watch them, and be patient.
28. And inform them that the water is to be divided among them—each share of drink equitably proportioned.

55. In an assembly of virtue, in the presence of an Omnipotent King.
