I suggest,

{3:187} And [mention, O Muhammad], as God took the covenant from those who were given the Book, [saying], "You shall surely make it clear to the people and not suppress it." But they banished it behind their backs and purchased with it a small price. Then how wretched is what they purchase!

{3:188} And never reckon that those who rejoice in what they have accorded and like to be praised for what they did not do - never reckon them, in the slightest, escaping from the torment, and for them is a painful torment.

{3:189} And to God belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and God is over everything Powerful.
