I suggest,

{4:171} O People of the Book, do not inflate in your religion nor say about God except the truth. Verily, the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, is but a messenger of God and His word which He cast to Mary and a spirit from Him. So believe in God and His messengers. And do not say, "Three"; desist - [it is] better for you. Verily, God is but one deity. Sanctified is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. And sufficed God a Trustee.

{4:172} Never will the Messiah disdain to be a worshiper of God, nor will the angels brought near. And whoever disdains His worship and deems himself big - then He will soon gather them to Himself altogether.

{4:173} Then as for those who have believed and did the righteous [deeds], then He fully gives them their rewards and adds to them from His bounty. And as for those who disdained and deemed themselves big, then He torments them with a painful torment, and they will not find for themselves besides God an ally nor a helper.

A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.
