The arrangement of the verses in each Surah of the Holy Quran was an issue of inquiry among Islamic scholars in different ages of Islamic period. The first scholars spoke of "Nazm" and "Munasaba" and the recent ones introduced the ideas of "the Surah as unity" and "the thematic unity of the Surahs".
In this article after a quick look at these attempts, some of thenew theories of text analysis and their theoretical bases have been mentioned and their potential of explaining of arrangement of the verses has been examined, considering that the main function of the Holy Quran is guidance and remembrance. Applying "cohesion theory" and "relevance theory", "the referential model" is proposed for description of the arrangement of the verses in a Surah and is examined in a long Surah.
