3 . Belike thou shalt kill thyself with grief because they become not believers.

4 . If We list, We can send down unto them a sign from the heaven so that their necks would became to it submissive.

5 . And there cometh not unto them any fresh admonition from the Compassionate but they are wont to be there from backsliders.

6 . So they have surely belied; wherefore anon there shall come unto them the truth of that whereat they were wont to mock.

7 . Observe they not the earth, how much We make to grow therein of every fruitful kind?

8 . Verily therein is a sign; yet most of them are not believers.

9 . And verily thy Lord! He is the Mighty, the Merciful.

10 . And recall what time thy Lord called unto Musa, saying: go thou unto the wrong-doing people.

11 . The people of Fir´awn; fear they Me not?

12 . He said: my Lord! verily I fear they shall belie me.

13 . And my breast straiteneth, and my tongue moveth not quickly: so send for Harun.

14 . And they have a crime against me, so I fear that they shall slay me.

15 . He said: by no means. so go ye twain with Our signs; verily We shall be with you listening.

16 . So go ye twain unto Fir´awn and say: verily we are the apostles of the Lord of the Worlds,

17 . Send with us the Children of Isra´il?

18 . Fir´awn said: brought we not thee up amongst us as a child? And thou tarriedst amongst us for many years of thy life?

19 . And thou didst that thy deed which thou didst; and thou art of the ingrates.

20 . He said: I did it then when I was mistaken.

21 . Then I fled from you when I feared you, and my Lord bestowed on me wisdom and made me one of the sent ones.

22 . And that favour wherewith thou didst oblige me was that thou hadst enslaved the Children of Isra´il?

23 . Fir´awn said. and what is the Lord of the worlds?

24 . He said: Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is in-between, if ye seek to be convinced.

25 . Fir´awn said unto those around him: hear ye not?

26 . He said: your Lord and the Lord of your ancient fathers.

27 . Fir´awn said: verily your apostle who hath been sent unto you is mad.

28 . He said: Lord of the east and the west and whatsoever is in-between, if ye understand.

29 . Fir´awn said: if thou wilt take a god other than me, I shall surely place thee among the prisoners.

30 . He said: even though I bring unto thee something manifest?

31 . Fir´awn said: forth with it then, if thou art of the truth- tellers.

32 . Then he cast down his staff, and lo! it was a serpent manifest.

33 . And he drew forth his hand, and lo! it was white unto the beholders.

34 . Fir´awn said unto the chiefs around him: verily this is a magician knowing.

35 . He would drive you out of your land through his magic; what then is it ye command?

36 . They said: put off him and his brother, and send unto the cities callers.

37 . Thot they may bring to thee every magician knowing.

38 . So the magicians were assembled at a set time on a day made known.

39 . And it was said unto the people: are ye going to assemble.

40 . Belike we may follow the magicians if they are the winners?

41 . Then when the magicians came, they said unto Fir´awn: will there surely be a big hire for us if we are the winners?

42 . He said: yea; and ye shall verily then be of those brought nigh.

43 . Musa said unto them: cast whatsoever ye have to cast.

44 . Then they cast their cords and their staves, and said: by the might of Fir´awn, verily we! we shall be the winners.

45 . Then Musa cast down his staff, and lo! it swallowed up that which they had devised.

46 . Then the magicians flung themselves prostrate.

47 . They said: we believe in the Lord of the worlds.

48 . The Lord of Musa and Harun.

49 . Fir´awn said: ye believed in him ere I gave you leave. Verily he is your chief who hath taught you magic, so ye shall surely come to know. Surely I shall cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides and surely I shall crucify you all.

50 . They said: no harm! verily unto our Lord we are to return.

51 . Verily we long that our Lord shall forgive us our faults because we have been the first of the believers

52 . And We revealed unto Musa saying: go by night with My bondmen verily ye shall be pursued.

53 . Then Fir´awn sent unto the cities callers:

54 . Verily these are but a band small.

55 . And verily they have enraged US.

56 . And verily we are host well-provided.

57 . Then We drave them forth from gardens and springs.

58 . And treasures and a station noble.

59 . Even so. And We caused the Children of Isra´il to inherit them.

60 . Then they pursued them at sunrise.

61 . And when the two parties saw each other, the companions of Musa said: verily we are overtaken.

62 . Musa said: by no means; verily with me is my Lord; He shall guide me.

63 . Then We revealed unto Musa, saying: smite thou the sea with thy staff. So it became separated, and each part was like unto a cliff mighty.

64 . And We brought near thither the others.

65 . And We delivered Musa and those with him together.

66 . Then We drowned the others.

67 . Verily herein is a sign; but most of them are not believers.

68 . And verily thy Lord! He is the Mighty, the Merciful.

69 . And recite unto them the story of Ibrahim.

70 . When he said unto his father and his people: what worship ye?

71 . They said: we worship idols, and we are unto them ever devoted

72 . He said: hearken they unto you when ye cry?

73 . Or, benefit they you or hurt they you?

74 . They said: nay; but we found our fathers doing in this wise.

75 . He said: have ye observed that which ye worship

76 . Ye and your fathers of old?

77 . Verily they are an enemy unto me, save the Lord of the worlds.

78 . Who hath created me, and He guideth me.

79 . He Who feedeth me and giveth me to drink.

80 . And when I sicken, then He healeth me.

81 . And He Who shall cause me to die, and then shall quicken me.

82 . And He Who, long, shall forgive me my faults, on the Day of Requital.

83 . My Lord! bestow on me wisdom and join me with the righteous.

84 . And appoint for me an honourable mention among the posterity

85 . And make me one of the inheritors of the Garden of Delight.

86 . And forgive my father; verily he is of the erring.

87 . And humiliate me not on the Day whereon people shall be raised.

88 . The Day whereon will profit neither substance nor sons.

89 . Unless it be he, who shall bring unto Allah a whole heart,

90 . And the Garden shall be brought nigh to the God, fearing.

91 . And the Fierce Fire shall be made apparent unto the seduced ones.

92 . And it shall be said unto them where is that which ye were wont to worship?

93 . Beside Allah? Can they succour you or succour themselves?

94 . Then they shall be hurled therein, they and the seduced ones.

95 . And the hosts of Iblis together.

96 . And they, While contending therein, shall say:

97 . By Allah, we have indeed been in an error manifest.

98 . When we equalled you with the Lord of the worlds.

99 . And none led us astray except the Culprits.

100 . So none we have as intercessors.

101 . Nor any loving friend.

102 . Were there for us a return, we would be of the believers.
