{18:17} And [had you been present], you would see the sun when it rose, inclining away from their cave on the right, and when it set, passing away from them on the left, while they were [laying] within an open space thereof. That was from the signs of God. He whom God guides is the [rightly] guided, but he whom He leaves astray - never will you find for him a protecting guide.

I suggest,
{18:17} And you [would] see the sun when it rose, it inclines away from their cave at the right side, and when it set, it passes away from them at the left side, while they were in an open space thereof. That is of the signs of God. He whom God guides is the guided one, but he whom God leaves astray - never will you find for him a guiding ally.
