Default Arabic translation please?

Here are pictures of a Ottoman jambiya with gold koftgari inscription in Arabic. In here I think I see a bismallah and some Qur'anic verse. Would someone help in the translations please?

You read well.
It is indeed an extract of the Holy Koran.
The reading in is easy, just few time to give to my translator,
so that she can find the verse and the sourate corresponding to the text.
Tks for your understanding

Let me join in the welcome to the forum. I especially appreciate how you color coded the boxes so we can match the translation with the specific calligraphy. Thank you very much.
