Did you notice?
85:1  By the heaven possessing the constellations,
85:2  by the promised Day,
85:3  by ones who bear witness and ones who are witnessed,
85:4  the Companions of the Ditch were slain,
85:5  possessors of the fuel of the fire
85:6  above which they were ones who sit,
85:7  as they were, in what they accomplish against the ones who believe, ones who bore witness.
85:8  And they sought revenge on them only because they believe in God, The Almighty, The Worthy of Praise,
85:9  Him to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And God is Witness over everything.
85:10  Truly, those who persecuted the males, ones who believe and the females, ones who believe and again repent not after that, for them is the punishment of hell and for them is the punishment of the burning.
85:11  Truly, those who believed and did as the ones in accord with morality, for them will be Gardens beneath which rivers run. That will be the Great Triumph.
85:12  Truly, the seizing by force by thy Lord is severe.
85:13  Truly, He causes to begin and He causes to return.
85:14  And He is The Forgiving, The Loving,
85:15  the Possessor of the Glorious Throne
85:16  Achiever of what He wants.
85:17  Approached thee the discourse of the armies
85:18  of Pharaoh and of Thamud?
85:19  Nay! Those who were ungrateful are belying
85:20  and God is One Who Encloses them from behind.
85:21  Nay! It is a glorious Recitation
85:22  inscribed on the Guarded Tablet.
