Ahmed Raza Khan: Mohammed Aqib Qadri:
It is not for the sun to catch up with the moon, nor does the night surpass the day; and each one of them floats in its orbit.

Yusuf Ali:
It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip the Day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to Law).

It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor doth the night outstrip the day. They float each in an orbit.
