{2:78} And among them are unlettered ones who do not know the Book except as wishful thoughts, but they are only assuming.

Quote:
{2:79} So woe to those who write the "scripture" with their own hands, then say, "This is from God," in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.

I suggest,
{2:79} So woe to those who write the "scripture" with their hands, then say, "This is from God," in order to purchase with it a small price. Therefore, woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.
