{13:18} For those who have responded to their Lord is the best [reward], but those who did not respond to Him - if they had all that is in the earth entirely and the like of it with it, they would [attempt to] ransom themselves thereby. Those will have the worst account, and their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the resting place.

{13:18} For those who have responded to their Lord is the loveliest [reward], but those who did not respond to Him - if they had all that is in the earth entirely and the like of it with it, they would [attempt to] ransom themselves thereby. Those - for them is the bad account, and their refuge is Gehenna (Hell), and how wretched is the cradle!

{13:19} Then is he who knows that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth like one who is blind? They will only be reminded who are people of understanding -

I suggest,
{13:19} Then is he who knows that what has been sent down to you from your Lord is the truth like one who is blind? Verily, the only [ones who] remember are those with intellects.
