Quote:
{8:48} And [remember] when Satan made their deeds pleasing to them and said, "No one can overcome you today from among the people, and indeed, I am your protector." But when the two armies sighted each other, he turned on his heels and said, "Indeed, I am disassociated from you. Indeed, I see what you do not see; indeed I fear God. And God is severe in penalty."

I suggest,
{8:48} And [remember] when Satan embellished their deeds (the idolaters') for them and said, "There is no defeater to you today from the people and indeed I am sheltering you." Then, when came into view the two companies, he turned on his heels and said, "Verily, I am dissociated from you. Indeed, I see what you do not see; indeed, I fear God. And God is severe in punishment."
