Verse 9:5 from 3 copies of the Holy Qur'an, always taken out of context, according to Nura and Taj.

Copy of Qur'an from the Internet
9:5 But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

The Glorious Qur'an, Translated by Professor Syed Vickar Ahamed
9:5 But when the forbidden months are over, then fight and kill the pagans wherever you find them, and catch them, attack them, and stay waiting for them in ever stage of war; But if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then make it easy for them: Verily, Allah is Often forgiving, Most Merciful.

The Qur'an, by Abdullah Yusuf Ali
9:5 But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem; but if they repent and establish regular Prayers and practise regular Charity, then open the way for them; for God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
