88:2 - On that day (many) faces will be downcast,

88:3 - Toiling, weary,

88:4 - Scorched by burning fire,

88:5 - Drinking from a boiling spring,

88:6 - No food for them save bitter thorn-fruit

88:7 - Which doth not nourish nor release from hunger.

88:8 - In that day other faces will be calm,

88:9 - Glad for their effort past,

88:10 - In a high Garden

88:11 - Where they hear no idle speech,

88:12 - Wherein is a gushing spring,

88:13 - Wherein are couches raised

88:14 - And goblets set at hand

88:15 - And cushions ranged

88:16 - And silken carpets spread.

88:20 - And the earth, how it is spread?
