I suggest,
{16:26} Those before them plotted, then came God to their structure from the bases, the roof fell on them from above them, and came to them the torment from where they did not perceive.

{16:27} Then, [on] the Day of Resurrection, He humiliates them and says to them, "Where are My partners, in [the worship of] whom you used to breech [with the faithful]?" Said those who have been given knowledge, "Verily, disgrace today and misery is upon the disbelievers."

{16:28} Those whom the angels recall (in death) wronging themselves. Then they offer peace, [saying] "We were not doing any evil." [The angels reply], "Nay, verily, God is very Knowledgeable of what you used to do."

{16:29} "Then, enter the door of Gehenna (Hell) staying therein forever. Then, how wretched the abode of the arrogant!"
