Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Which he sippeth) he sips puss and holds it in his throat (but can hardly swallow, and death) the agony of death (cometh unto him from every side) from beneath every single hair that he has; it is also said that this means: the Fire surrounds him from every side (while yet he cannot die) from such a torment, (and before him) after sipping puss (is a harsh doom) harsher than drinking puss.
