  6. He says, `I have spent out abundant wealth'.(6)

  9. and a tongue, and two lips,(9)
  10. and showed him two highways?(10)
  11. Yet he would not assault the steep;(11)
  12. and what teaches thee what the steep is?(12)
  13. It is the freeing of a neck,(13)

  15. an orphan near of kin,(15)
  16. or a destitute living in dust.(16)
  17. Then he would become of those who believe, and exhort each other to be patient, and exhort each other to be merciful.(17)
  18. Those are the people of the right hand.(18)
  19. And those who disbelieve in Our signs, they are the people of the left hand;(19)
