Sahih International:

And [mention, O Muhammad], the Day when He will gather them together [and say], "O company of jinn, you have [misled] many of mankind." And their allies among mankind will say, "Our Lord, some of us made use of others, and we have [now] reached our term, which you appointed for us." He will say, "The Fire is your residence, wherein you will abide eternally, except for what Allah wills. Indeed, your Lord is Wise and Knowing."

1 A. J. Arberry

On the day when He shall muster them all together: 'Company of jinn, you have made much of mankind.' Then their friends among mankind will say, 'Our Lord, we have profited each of the other, and we have reached the term determined by Thee for us. He will say: 'The Fire is your lodging, therein to dwell forever' - except as God will; surely thy Lord is All-wise, All-knowing.

2 Abdul Haleem

On the day He gathers everyone together [saying], ‘Company of jinn! You have seduced a great many humans,’ their adherents among mankind will say, ‘Lord, we have profited from one another, but now we have reached the appointed time You decreed for us.’ He will say, ‘Your home is the Fire, and there you shall remain’- unless God wills otherwise: [Prophet], your Lord is all wise, all knowing.

3 Abdul Majid Daryabadi

On the Day whereon He will gather them all together: O ye race of genii! surely much ye have gotten out of mankind. And their friends among mankind will say: our Lord! much use some of us made of others, and now we have reached the appointed term which Thou appointedest for us. He will say: the Fire shall be your habitation, therein ye shall be as abiders, save as Allah may will. Verily thy Lord is Wise, Knowing.

4 Abdullah Yusuf Ali

One day will He gather them all together, (and say); "O ye assembly of Jinns! Much (toll) did ye take of men." Their friends amongst men will say; "Our Lord! we made profit from each other; but (alas!) we reached our term - which thou didst appoint for us." He will say; "The Fire be your dwelling-place; you will dwell therein for ever, except as Allah willeth." for thy Lord is full of wisdom and knowledge.

5 Abul Ala Maududi

And on the Day when He shall muster them all together, He will say (to the jinn): 'O assembly of the jinn, you have seduced a good many of mankind.' And their companions from among the humans will say: 'Our Lord! We did indeed benefit from one another and now have reached the term which You had set for us.' Thereupon Allah will say: 'The Fire is now your abode, and therein you shall abide.' Only those whom Allah wills shall escape the Fire. Surely your Lord is All-Wise, All-Knowing.

6 Ahmed Ali

On the day He will gather them together, (He will say:) "O you assembly of jinns, you made great use of men." But their proteges among men will say: "O our Lord, we lived a life of mutual gain, but have now reached the term You ordained for us." "Your abode is Hell," He will say, "where you will dwell for ever, unless God please otherwise." Verily your Lord is wise and all-knowing.

7 Ahmed Raza Khan

And the Day when He will raise them all and will proclaim, “O you group of jinns, you have enticed a lot of men”; and their human friends will submit, “Our Lord, some of us have benefited from one another and have reached the appointed term which You had set for us”; He will say, “Your home is hell – remain in it for ever, except whomever Allah wills”; O dear Prophet (Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him), indeed your Lord is the Wise, the All Knowing.

8 Ali Quli Qarai

9 Ali Ünal

On the day when He will raise to life and gather them (jinn and humankind, believers and unbelievers) all together, (He says): "O you assembly of the jinn!

We enjoyed one another (in self-interested fellowship, serving one another’s selfish ends), and now we have reached the end of our term that You appointed for us." He (God) will say: "The Fire is now your dwelling to abide therein – God decrees however He wills." Indeed your Lord is All-Wise, All-Knowing (Whose every decree and act are based on absolute wisdom and knowledge).

23 Tafsir jalalayn

And, mention, the day when He, God, shall gather them (yahshuruhum, may also read nahshuruhum, `We shall gather them'), that is, creatures, all together, and it will be said to them; `O assembly of jinn, you have garnered much of mankind', by your misleading [them]. Then their friends, those who obeyed them, from among mankind will say, `Our Lord, we enjoyed one another, mankind enjoyed what the jinn adorned for them of passions, while the jinn [enjoyed] mankind's obedience to them; but now we have arrived at the term which You have appointed for us', that is, the Day of Resurrection -- this [statement] expresses extreme regret on their part. He, exalted be He, will say, to them, by the tongues of the angels; `The Fire is your lodging, your abode, to abide therein' -- except what God wills, of those times when they will exit from it in order to drink boiling water, which is located outside it, as God, exalted be He, has said; Then they shall return to the Hell-fire [Q. 37;68]; according to Ibn `Abbs, this [proviso] pertains to those whom God knows will believe (m, `what', thus has the sense of man, `whom'). Surely your Lord is Wise, in His actions, Knowing, of His creatures.

24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

Allah says, `Mention, O Muhammad, in what you convey and warn,' that,

وَيَوْمَ يِحْشُرُهُمْ جَمِيعًا

on the Day when He will gather them (all) together.

gather the Jinns and their loyal supporters from mankind who used to worship them in this life, seek refuge with them, obey them and inspire each other with adorned, deceitful speech.

Allah will proclaim then,

يَا مَعْشَرَ الْجِنِّ قَدِ اسْتَكْثَرْتُم مِّنَ الاِنسِ

O you assembly of Jinn! Many did you mislead of men,

So the Ayah;
قَدِ اسْتَكْثَرْتُم مِّنَ الاِنسِ
(Many did you mislead of men) refers to their misguiding and leading them astray.

Allah also said;

أَلَمْ أَعْهَدْ إِلَيْكُمْ يبَنِى ءَادَمَ أَن لاَّ تَعْبُدُواْ الشَّيطَـنَ إِنَّهُ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ

وَأَنِ اعْبُدُونِى هَـذَا صِرَطٌ مُّسْتَقِيمٌ

وَلَقَدْ أَضَلَّ مِنْكُمْ جِبِلًّ كَثِيراً أَفَلَمْ تَكُونُواْ تَعْقِلُونَ

Did I not command you, O Children of Adam, that you should not worship Shaytan. Verily, he is a plain enemy to you. And that you should worship Me. That is the straight path. And indeed he (Shaytan) did lead astray a great multitude of you. Did you not, then, understand. (36;60-62)

and,

وَقَالَ أَوْلِيَأوُهُم مِّنَ الاِنسِ رَبَّنَا اسْتَمْتَعَ بَعْضُنَا بِبَعْضٍ

and their friends among the people will say;"Our Lord! We benefited one from the other..."

The friends of the Jinns among humanity will give this answer to Allah, after Allah chastises them for being misguided by the Jinns.

Al-Hasan commented,

"They benefited from each other when the Jinns merely commanded and mankind obeyed."

Ibn Jurayj said,

"During the time of Jahiliyyah, a man would reach a land and proclaim, `I seek refuge with the master (Jinn) of this valley,' and this is how they benefited from each other. They used this as an excuse for them on the Day of Resurrection."

Therefore, the Jinns benefit from humans since humans revere the Jinns by invoking them for help. The Jinns would then proclaim, "We became the masters of both mankind and the Jinns."

وَبَلَغْنَا أَجَلَنَا الَّذِيَ أَجَّلْتَ لَنَا

but now we have reached our appointed term which You did appoint for us.

meaning, death, according to As-Suddi.

قَالَ النَّارُ مَثْوَاكُمْ

He (Allah) will say;"The Fire be your dwelling place..."

where you will reside and live, you and your friends,

خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا

you will dwell therein forever.

and will never depart except what Allah may will.

إِلاَّ مَا شَاء اللّهُ
.

except as Allah may will.

إِنَّ رَبَّكَ حَكِيمٌ عَليمٌ



Certainly your Lord is All-Wise, All-Knowing.
