Said the eminent among the people of Pharaoh, "Indeed, this is a learned magician (109) Who wants to expel you from your land [through magic], so what do you instruct?" (110) They said: "Put him and his brother off (awhile) and send out heralds to the cities (111) to bring together at the Pharaohs court all the skillful magicians. (112) And the magicians came to Pharaoh and asked, "Shall we have a reward, if we should prevail?" (113) "Yes," said he, "you will be among the honoured." (114) They said: O Musa! either thou cast down, or we shall be the ones to cast down. (115) Said Moses: "Throw ye (first)." So when they threw, they bewitched the eyes of the people, and struck terror into them: for they showed a great (feat of) magic. (116) We inspired Moses to throw his staff, and suddenly it began to swallow-up all that the magicians had (falsely) invented. (117) ۞ So the truth was proved and their works were disproved. (118) Thus were they there defeated and brought low. (119) And the sorcerers fell down prostrate. (120) They said, "We have believed in the Lord of the worlds, (121) The Lord of Musa and Harun. (122) The Pharaoh said to the magicians, "You declared your belief in him (Moses) without my permission. This is a plot to throw my people out of their city. But you will soon know. (123) Surely I will cut off your hands and feet on the opposite sides and thereafter I will crucify you all. (124) They said: Surely to our Lord shall we go back: (125) Will you punish us just because we believed in the signs of our Lord when they came to us? Our Lord! Shower us with perseverance and cause us to die as those who have submitted [to You].' (126)
