50:17  When the two meeters meet, sitting the one on the right and the other on the left
50:18  not a word does he utter, but a watcher is by him ready
50:19  And the agony of death shall come in truth!- 'that is what thou didst shun!
50:20  And the trumpet shall be blown!- that is the threatened day
50:21  And every soul shall come - with it a driver and a witness
50:22  'Thou wert heedless of this, and we withdrew thy veil from thee, and today is thine eyesight keen!
50:23  And his mate shall say, 'This is what is ready for me (to attest)
50:24  'Throw into hell every stubborn misbeliever!
50:25  who forbids good, a transgressor, a doubter
50:26  who sets other gods with God - and throw him, ye twain, into fierce torment!
50:27  His mate shall say, 'Our Lord! I seduced him not, but he was in a remote error.
50:28  He shall say, 'Wrangle not before me; for I sent the threat to you before
50:29  The sentence is not changed with me, nor am I unjust to my servants.
50:30  On the day we will say to hell, 'Art thou full?' and it will say, 'Are there any more?
