Did you notice?

76:1  There was certainly a time when there was no mention of the human being
76:2  We created the human being from the union of sperm and egg to test him. We gave him hearing and vision
76:3  We showed him the right path whether he would be grateful or ungrateful
76:4  We have prepared chains, shackles, and flaming fire (for the disbelievers)
76:5  The virtuous ones will drink from a cup containing campho
76:6  which flows from a spring from which the servants of God will drink
76:7  The servants of God fulfill their vows and are afraid of the day in which there will be widespread terror
76:8  They feed the destitute, orphans, and captives for the love of God, saying
76:9  "We only feed you for the sake of God and we do not want any reward or thanks from you
76:10  We are afraid of our Lord and the bitterly distressful day"
76:11  God will certainly rescue them from the terror of that day and will meet them with joy and pleasure
76:12  For their patience, He will reward them with Paradise and silk
76:13  They will recline therein on couches and they will find neither excessive heat nor cold
76:14  The shades of the garden will be closely spread over them and it will be easy for them to reach the fruits
76:15  They will be served with silver dishes and crystal clear goblets
76:16  Also there will be crystal clear goblets of silver containing the exact measure of drink which they desire
76:17  They will drink cups containing (soft flowing) sparkling wate
76:18  from a spring named salsabil
76:19  They will be served by immortal youths who look like scattered pearls
76:20  If you were to see it, you would find it to be a great kingdom with great bounty
76:21  They will have fine green silk and brocade, and they will be decked with bracelets of silver. Their Lord will provide them with a drink of pure wine
76:22  This will be their reward and their efforts will be appreciated
76:23  (Muhammad), We have revealed the Quran to you in gradual steps
76:24  So wait patiently for the command of your Lord and do not yield to any sinful or disbelieving person among them (people)
76:25  Mention the Name of your Lord, mornings and evenings
76:26  Prostrate before Him and glorify Him extensively during the night
76:27  These people (disbelievers) love the worldly life and neglect the terrifying day which will come
76:28  We have created them and have given them strength. Had We wanted, We could have replaced them with another people like them
76:29  This chapter is a reminder. Let those who want, seek guidance from their Lord
76:30  (The virtuous mentioned in this chapter) want only what God wants. God is All-knowing and All-wise
76:31  He admits to His mercy whomever He wants. For the unjust He has prepared a painful punishment
