Quote:
{82:13} Indeed, the righteous will be in pleasure,

I suggest,
{82:13} Verily, the dutiful surely [will be] in a bliss,

Quote:
{82:14} And indeed, the wicked will be in Hellfire.

I suggest,
{82:14} And verily, the flagrant surely [will be] in an Abyss.

I like the coincidence that "bliss" and "Abyss" rhyme like the two Arabic words.

Quote:
{82:15} They will [enter to] burn therein on the Day of Recompense,

I suggest,
{82:15} They singe in it [on] the Day of Settlement,

Quote:
{82:16} And never therefrom will they be absent.

I suggest,
{82:16} And they are not therefrom ever absent.

Quote:
{82:17} And what can make you know what is the Day of Recompense?

I suggest,
{82:17} And what would have made you grasp what the Day of Settlement is?

Quote:
{82:18} Then, what can make you know what is the Day of Recompense?

I suggest,
{82:18} Then, what would have made you grasp what the Day of Settlement is?

Quote:
{82:19} It is the Day when a soul will not possess for another soul [power to do] a thing; and the command, that Day, is [entirely] with God.

I suggest,
{82:19} [It is] the Day when a soul does not have for another soul [any power to do] a thing; and the command, that Day, belongs to God.
