I suggest,
{40:49} And those in the Fire will say to the keepers of Gehenna (Hellfire), "Supplicate your Lord that He may lighten for us a day from the torment."

Quote:
{40:50} They will say, "Did there not come to you your messengers with clear proofs?" They will say, "Yes." They will reply, "Then supplicate [yourselves], but the supplication of the disbelievers is not except in error."

I suggest,
{40:50} They will say, "Did there not come to you your messengers with clear proofs?" They will say, "Yes." They will say, "Then supplicate [yourselves]". And the supplication of the disbelievers is not but in vain.
