Did you notice?

69:1  The Besieger
69:2  What is the Besieger?
69:3  What will show you what is the Besieger?
69:4  Thamud and ‘a€d denied the Catastrophe
69:5  As for Thamud, they were destroyed by the Cry
69:6  And as for ‘a€d, they were destroyed by a fierce icy gale
69:7  which He disposed against them for seven grueling nights and eight days, so that you could have seen the people lying about therein prostrate as if they were hollow trunks of palm trees
69:8  So do you see any trace of them
69:9  Then brought Pharaoh and those who were before him, and the towns that were overturned, iniquity
69:10  Then they disobeyed the apostle of their Lord, so He seized them with a terrible seizing
69:11  Indeed when the Flood rose high, We carried you in a floating ark
69:12  that We might make it a reminder for you, and that receptive ears might remember it
69:13  When the Trumpet is blown with a single blas
69:14  and the earth and the mountains are lifted and levelled with a single leveling
69:15  then, on that day, will the Imminent [Hour] befal
69:16  and the sky will be split open —for it will be frail that day—
69:17  and the angels will be all over it, and the Throne of your Lord will be borne that day by eight [angels]
69:18  That day you will be exposed: none of your secrets will remain hidden
69:19  As for him who is given his book in his right hand, he will say, ‘Here, take and read my book
69:20  Indeed I knew that I shall encounter my account.’
69:21  So he will have a pleasant life
69:22  in an elevated garden
69:23  whose clusters [of fruits] will be within easy reach
69:24  [He will be told]: ‘Enjoy your food and drink, for what you had sent in advance in past days.’
69:25  But as for him who is given his book in his left hand, he will say, ‘I wish I had not been given my book
69:26  nor had I ever known what my account is
69:27  I wish death had been the end of it all
69:28  My wealth did not avail me
69:29  My authority has departed from me.’
69:30  [The angels will be told:] ‘Seize him, and fetter him
69:31  Then put him into hell
69:32  Then, in a chain whose length is seventy cubits, bind him
69:33  Indeed he had no faith in Allah, the All-supreme
69:34  and he did not urge the feeding of the needy
69:35  so he has no friend here today
69:36  nor any food except pus
69:37  which no one shall eat except the iniquitous.’
69:38  I swear by what you se
69:39  and what you do not see
69:40  it is indeed the speech of a noble apostle
69:41  and it is not the speech of a poet. Little is the faith that you have
69:42  Nor is it the speech of a soothsayer. Little is the admonition that you take
69:43  Gradually sent down from the Lord of all the worlds
69:44  Had he faked any sayings in Our name
69:45  We would have surely seized him by the right han
69:46  and then cut off his aorta
69:47  and none of you could have held Us off from him
69:48  Indeed it is a reminder for the Godwary
69:49  Indeed We know that there are some among you who deny [it]
69:50  And indeed it will be a [matter of] regret for the faithless
69:51  It is indeed certain truth
69:52  So celebrate the Name of your Lord, the All-supreme
