Quote:
{70:36} So what is [the matter] with those who disbelieve, hastening [from] before you, [O Muhammad],

I suggest,
{70:36} So what is [the matter] with those who have disbelieved: at you [, O Muhammad,] gawking?

Quote:
{70:37} [To sit] on [your] right and [your] left in separate groups?

Love Qara'i's translation of عزين as "batches!" I suggest,
{70:37} By the right and by the left, in batches?

Quote:
{70:38} Does every person among them aspire to enter a garden of pleasure?

I suggest,
{70:38} Does every person of them crave to be admitted to a Garden of luxury?

Quote:
{70:39} No! Indeed, We have created them from that which they know.

I suggest,
{70:39} No! Verily, We have created them from what they [very well] know.
