69. The Inevitable Hour (13 – 37)

13When the Trumpet is sounded a single time, 14when the earth and its mountains are raised high and then crushed with a single blow,15on that Day the Great Event will come to pass.16The sky will be torn apart on that Day, it will be so frail. 17The angels will be on all sides of it and, on that Day, eight of them will bear the throne of your Lord above them. 18On that Day you will be brought to judgement and none of your secrets will remain hidden. 19Anyone who is given his Record in his right hand will say, ‘Here is my Record, read it. 20I knew I would meet my Reckoning,’ 21and so he will have a pleasant life 22in a lofty Garden, 23with clustered fruit within his reach. 24It will be said, ‘Eat and drink to your heart's content as a reward for what you have done in days gone by.’ 25But anyone who is given his Record in his left hand will say, 'If only I had never been given any Record 26and knew nothing of my Reckoning. 27How I wish death had been the end of me.28 My wealth has been no use to me, 29and my power has vanished.’ 30‘Take him, put a collar on him, 31lead him to burn in the blazing Fire, 32and [bind him] in a chain seventy metres a A dhira' is an arm's-length. long: 33he would not believe in Almighty God, 34he never encouraged feeding the hungry, 35so today he has no real friend here,36and the only food he has is the filth 37that only sinners eat.’

Notes:

a A dhira' is an arm's-length.
