Quote:
{78:31} Indeed, for the righteous is attainment -

I suggest,
{78:31} Verily, for the watchful [of God] is a bypass -

Quote:
{78:33} And full-breasted [companions] of equal age

I suggest,
{78:33} And matching buxom [wives],

Quote:
{78:34} And a full cup.

I suggest,
{78:34} And a goblet brimming.

Quote:
{78:35} No ill speech will they hear therein or any falsehood -

I suggest,
{78:35} They do not hear in it frivolity nor outrageous lying -

Quote:
{78:36} [As] reward from your Lord, [a generous] gift [made due by] account,

I suggest,
{78:36} A recompense from your Lord, a bestowal, a reckoning.

Quote:
{78:37} [From] the Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, the Beneficent. They possess not from Him [authority for] speech.

I suggest,
{78:37} [From] the Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, the Beneficent. They do not possess [any means] of addressing Him.

Quote:
{78:38} The Day that the Spirit and the angels will stand in rows, they will not speak except for one whom the Beneficent permits, and he will say what is correct.

I suggest,
{78:38} The Day the Spirit and the angels [will] stand in an array, not speaking except one to whom the Beneficent has given permission, and says right.
