Verse (5:82)

The analysis above refers to the 82nd verse of chapter 5 (sūrat l-māidah):

Sahih International: You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers [to be] the Jews and those who associate others with Allah; and you will find the nearest of them in affection to the believers those who say, "We are Christians." That is because among them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant.
