[85:1]  The sky and its galaxies.

 

[85:2]  The promised day.

 

[85:3]  The witness and the witnessed.

 

[85:4]  Woe to the people of the canyon.

 

[85:5]  They ignited a blazing fire.

 

[85:6]  Then sat around it.

 

[85:7]  To watch the burning of the believers.

 

[85:8]  They hated them for no other reason than believing in GOD, the Almighty, the Praiseworthy.

 

[85:9]  To Him belongs the kingship of the heavens and the earth. And GOD witnesses all things.

[85:14]  And He is the Forgiving, Most Kind.

 

[85:15]  Possessor of the glorious throne.

 

[85:16]  Doer of whatever He wills.

 

[85:17]  Did you note the history of the troops?

[85:22]  In a preserved master tablet.
