9And a tongue and two lips?
10And shown him the two ways (good and evil)?
11But he has not attempted to pass on the path that is steep (i.e. the path which will lead to goodness and success).
12And what will make you know the path that is steep?
13(It is) freeing a neck (slave)
14Or giving food in a day of hunger (famine),

20The Fire will be shut over them (i.e. they will be enveloped by the Fire without any opening or window or outlet.
