I suggest,

{5:82} You will surely find the fiercest people in enmity toward the believers [to be] the Jews and those who have associated [others with God in worship]. And you will surely find the nearest of them in comity toward the believers [to be] those who say, "We are Christians." That is because among them are priests and monks and because they do not deem themselves big.

{5:83} And when they have heard what has been sent down to the Messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of what they recognized of the truth. They say, "Our Lord, we have believed, so write us among the witnesses."

{5:84} "And why should we not believe in God and what has come to us of the truth, and long that our Lord would admit us with the righteous folk?"

{5:85} So, God rewarded them for what they said with Gardens flowing beneath which are rivers, lasting therein. And that is the recompense of the benevolent.

{5:86} And those who have disbelieved and belied Our signs - those are the inmates of the Abyss.

A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.
