So take off your shoes, you are in the sacred valley, Tuwa. (12) "I have chosen thee: listen, then, to the inspiration (sent to thee). (13) "Verily, I - I alone - am God; there is no deity save Me.

(16) "And what is that in your right hand, O Musa (Moses)?" (17) 'Why, it is my staff,' said Moses. 'I lean upon it, and with it I beat down leaves to feed my sheep; other uses also I find in it. (18) (Allah) said: "Cast it down, O Musa (Moses)!" (19) So he threw it down, and lo! it was a rapidly moving snake. (20) Then He said: "Seize it and have no fear. We shall restore it to its former state. (21) "And press your (right) hand to your (left) side, it will come forth white (and shining), without any disease as another sign, (22) We shall show you some of Our greatest signs.
