69:14 The earth and the mountains will be carried off and crushed; utterly crushed.

69:21 He has deserved a happy life.

69:30 Take him and shackle him.
69:31 Burn him in Hell.
69:32 In a chain that is seventy arms long, tie him up.
69:33 For he did not believe in GOD, Most Great.
69:34 Nor did he advocate the feeding of the poor.
69:35 Consequently, he has no friend here.
69:36 Nor any food, except the bitter variety.
69:37 Food for the sinners.
69:38 I swear by what you se
69:39 And what you do not see.
69:40 This is the utterance of an honorable messenger.
69:41 Not the utterance of a poet; rarely do you believe.
69:42 Nor the utterance of a soothsayer; rarely do you take heed
69:43 A revelation from the Lord of the universe.
69:44 Had he uttered any other teachings.
69:45 We would have punished him.
69:46 We would have stopped the revelations to him.

69:51 It is the absolute truth.
69:52 Therefore, you shall glorify the name of your Lord, Most Great.
