Did you notice?
85:1  By the sky holding constellations
85:2  and the promised day,
85:3  and a witness plus his evidence,
85:4  the diggers of the Trench will be slain!
85:5  The fire was full of fuel
85:6  as they were crouching over it,
85:7  and themselves were witnesses of what they were doing to believers.
85:8  They persecuted them merely because they believed in God, the Powerful, the Praiseworthy,
85:9  Who holds control over Heaven and Earth. God is a Witness for everything!
85:10  Those who harass believing men and women, then do not repent, will have Hell´s torment; they will have the torment of burning.
85:11  The ones who believe and perform honorable deeds will have gardens through which rivers flow; that will be the great Achievement.
85:12  Nevertheless your Lord´s onslaught will be severe;
85:13  He is the One Who originates [matters], then repeats them all over again.
85:14  He is the Forgiving, the Affectionate,
85:15  Possessor of the Majestic Throne,
85:16  Doer of anything He wants.
85:17  Has the report on the armies ever come to you,
85:18  about Pharaoh and Thamud?
85:19  Rather those who disbelieve [persist] in denial
85:20  while God comes sweeping in behind them.
85:21  Still it is a majestic Reading
85:22  [preserved] on a guarded tablet!
