۞ When the Terror descends 1 and then there will be no one to deny its occurrence 2 It will abase some and exalt others. 3 When the earth shall be shaken to its depths, 4 And the hills are ground to powder 5 Turned to dust, floating in the air, 6 And ye shall be sorted out into three classes. 7 Companions of the Right, what are the Companions of the Right? 8 And there shall be such as will have lost themselves in evil: oh, how [unhappy] will be they who have lost themselves in evil! 9 But the foremost shall be [they who in life were] the foremost [in faith and good works]: 10 Who will be honoured 11 In Gardens of Delight. 12 A large group from the earlier generations. 13 and how few of the later folk) 14 (They will be) on thrones woven with gold and precious stones, 15 reclining upon them, set face to face, 16 Youths of never-ending bloom will pass round to them 17 With vessels, pitchers and a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring - 18 (no brows throbbing, no intoxication) 19 And fruit; that they may choose. 20 And meat of birds that they may wish. 21 And [with them will be their] companions pure, most beautiful of eye, 22 Like pearls safely hidden. 23 A recompense for that which they have been working. 24 Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any taint of ill,- 25 All talk will be sound and upright. 26 As for the People on the Right, how fortunate shall be the people on the Right! 27 Amid thornless lote-trees, 28 Bananatrees, piled 29 Lengthened shadows, 30 and flowing water 31 and an abundance of fruits, 32 Unending, unforbidden, 33 And raised couches; 34 We have indeed developed these women with an excellent development. 35 and made them virgins, 36 full of love, well-matched 37 For those on the right. 38
