230. And if he hath divorced her (the third time), then she is not lawful unto him 
thereafter until she hath wedded another husband. Then if he (the other husband) 
divorce her it is no sin for both of them that they come together again if they 
consider that they are able to observe the limits of Allah. These are the limits of 
Allah. He manifesteth them for people who have knowledge.
Yusuf Ali
230. So if a husband divorces his wife (irrevocably) he cannot after that remarry her 
until after she has married another husband and he has divorced her.  In that case 
there is no blame on either of them if they reunite provided they feel that they can 
keep the limits ordained by Allah.  Such are the limits ordained by Allah which He 
makes plain to those who understand.

231. When ye have divorced women, and they have reached their term, then retain them 
in kindness or release them in kindness. Retain them not to their hurt so that ye 
transgress (the limits). He who doeth that hath wronged his soul. Make not the 
revelations of Allah a laughing stock (by your behavior), but remember Allah's grace 
upon you and that which He hath revealed unto you of the Scripture and of wisdom, 
whereby He doth exhort you. Observe your duty to Allah and know that Allah is Aware 
of all things.
Yusuf Ali
231. When ye divorce women and they fulfil the term of their (`Iddat) either take 
them back on equitable terms or set them free on equitable terms; but do not take 
them back to injure them or to take undue advantage; if anyone does that He wrongs 
his own soul.  Do not treat Allah's Signs as a jest but solemnly rehearse Allah's 
favors on you and the fact that He sent down to you the Book and Wisdom for your 
instruction.  And fear Allah and know that Allah is well acquainted with all things.

232. And when ye have divorced women and they reach their term, place not difficulties
in the way of their marrying their husbands if it is agreed between them in kindness. 
This is an admonition for him among you who believeth in Allah and the Last Day. That 
is more virtuous for you, and cleaner. Allah knoweth: ye know not.
Yusuf Ali
232. When ye divorce women and they fulfil the term of their (`Iddat) do not prevent 
them from marrying their (former) husbands if they mutually agree on equitable terms. 
 This instruction is for all amongst you who believe in Allah and the Last Day.  That 
is (the course making for) most virtue and purity amongst you and Allah knows and ye 
know not.
