حَتَّىٰ إِذَا رَأَوْا مَا يُوعَدُونَ فَسَيَعْلَمُونَ مَنْ أَضْعَفُ نَاصِرًا وَأَقَلُّ عَدَدًا

Only when they see what they have been threatened with will they know who is weaker in helpers and inferior in manpower.

Malik : When they shall see the punishment that they are being threatened with, then they shall find out whose helpers are weak and whose supporters are fewer in number.
Pickthall : Till (the day) when they shall behold that which they are promised (they may doubt); but then they will know for certain) who is weaker in allies and less in multitude.

Asad 18 I.e., on the Day of Judgment. Cf. the second paragraph of 19:75, which is similarly phrased.

Asad 19 Lit., "is weaker as to helpers and less in numbers" - i.e., less significant despite its greater numbers.

Yusuf Ali 5747 When the Hereafter arrives, and true values are restored, they will see clearly that the Promise of Allah was true, and that death on this earth was not the end of all things. Then they will see that those who were accounted weak on this earth will, in the realm of Reality, be the strong ones; those who seemed to have no following here will have, there, all the great and true ones with them, to help them and welcome them to their own ranks.
