Did you notice?
83:1  Woe to the cheaters
83:2  Who, when they take the measure (of their dues) from men, take it fully
83:3  And when they measure out to others or weigh out for them, they give less than is due
83:4  Do they not think that they will be raised again
83:5  To a mighty day? -
83:6  The day when men will stand before the Lord of the worlds
83:7  Nay, surely the record of the wicked is in the prison
83:8  And what will make thee know what the prison is
83:9  It is a written book
83:10  Woe on that day to the rejectors
83:11  Who give the lie to the day of Judgment
83:12  And none gives the lie to it but every exceeder of limits, every sinful one
83:13  When Our messages are recited to him, he says: Stories of those of yore
83:14  Nay, rather, what they earned is rust upon their hearts
83:15  Nay, surely they are that day debarred form their Lord
83:16  Then they will surely enter the burning Fire
83:17  Then it will be said: This is what you gave the lie to
83:18  Nay, surely the record of the righteous is in the highest places
83:19  And what will make thee know what the highest places are
83:20  It is a written book
83:21  Those drawn near (to Allah) witness it
83:22  Surely the righteous are in bliss
83:23  On raised couches, gazing -
83:24  Thou recognizest in their faces the brightness of bliss
83:25  They are given to drink of a pure drink, sealed
83:26  The sealing of it is (with) musk. And for that let the aspirers aspire
83:27  And it is tempered with water coming from above -
83:28  A fountain from which drink those drawn near (to Allah)
83:29  Surely they who are guilty used to laugh at those who believe
83:30  And when they passed by them, they winked at one another
83:31  And when they returned to their people, they returned exulting
83:32  And when they saw them, they said: Surely these are in error -
83:33  And they were not sent as keepers over them
83:34  So this day those who believe laugh at the disbelievers -
83:35  On raised couches, gazing
83:36  Surely the disbelievers are rewarded as they did
