70|35|These will be honored in Gardens.
36فَمَالِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا قِبَلَكَ مُهْطِعِينَ
70|36|What is with those who disbelieve, stretching their necks towards you.
37عَنِ الْيَمِينِ وَعَنِ الشِّمَالِ عِزِينَ

70|40|I swear by the Lord of the Easts and the Wests, that We are Able.
41عَلَىٰ أَن نُّبَدِّلَ خَيْرًا مِّنْهُمْ وَمَا نَحْنُ بِمَسْبُوقِينَ
70|41|To replace them with better than they, and We are not to be outdone.

70|43|The Day when they will emerge from the tombs in a rush, as though they were hurrying towards a target.
44خَاشِعَةً أَبْصَارُهُمْ تَرْهَقُهُمْ ذِلَّةٌ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ الْيَوْمُ الَّذِي كَانُوا يُوعَدُونَ
70|44|Their eyes cast down; overwhelmed by humiliation. This is the Day which they were promised.
