I suggest,

{5:51} O you who have believed, do not take for yourselves the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are allies of each other. And whoever allies with them among you - then verily, he is [one] of them. Verily, God does not guide the wrongdoing folk.

{5:52} So you see those in whose hearts is disease hastening into [allying with] them, saying, "We fear that may hit us a round [of misfortune]." Then perhaps God might bring the opening (victory) or a command from Him, then they become, over what they kept secret within themselves, regretful.

{5:53} And say those who have believed, "Are these the ones who swore by God their earnest oaths that verily they are with you?" Their deeds sank, thus they have become losers.
