۞ From the earth We have created you and We will return you to it, and from it We shall bring you forth a second time. (55) And We certainly showed Pharaoh Our signs - all of them - but he denied and refused. (56) He said: "Have you come to us to drive us out of our land by your sorcery? (57) We will indeed bring sorcery similar to yours. Appoint a meeting place between us and you, in a place which is agreeable to both which neither we nor you shall not fail (to keep)' (58) Musa said: your appointment is the gala day, and that the people be gathered in the forenoon. (59) So Firaun went away and gathered his schemes,* then came. (* 72000 magicians and their materials.) (60) Moses said unto them: Woe unto you! Invent not a lie against Allah, lest He extirpate you by some punishment. He who lieth faileth miserably. (61) They started arguing and whispering to each other (62) They said, "Indeed, these are two magicians who want to drive you out of your land with their magic and do away with your most exemplary way. (63) Gather your guile and then lineup a rank those who gain the upper hand today shall indeed prosper' (64) They said, "O Moses, either you throw or we will be the first to throw." (65) He said, "Nay, throw ye first!" Then behold their ropes and their rods-so it seemed to him on account of their magic - began to be in lively motion! (66) And Moses conceived a fear in his mind. (67) We (Allah) said: "Fear not! Surely, you will have the upper hand. (68) And throw down what is in your right hand; it will swallow up all that they have wrought. They have wrought only a magician's stratagem. A magician cannot come to any good, come whence he may." (69) Thereafter the sorcerers threw themselves down, prostrating, saying: 'We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses' (70) Said Firaun, “You accepted faith in him before I permitted you! He is indeed your leader who taught you magic; I therefore swear, I will cut off your hands and your legs from alternate sides, and crucify you on the trunks of palm-trees, and you will surely come to know among us two, whose punishment is more severe and more lasting.” (71) They said: "Never shall we regard thee as more than the Clear Signs that have come to us, or than Him Who created us! so decree whatever thou desirest to decree: for thou canst only decree (touching) the life of this world. (72) We have certainly come to believe in our Lord that He may forgive our trespasses and the magic you have forced us to perform, for God is nobler and abiding." (73) Verily he who comes to his Lord as a sinner (at Judgment),- for him is Hell: therein shall he neither die nor live. (74) And whoso comes unto Him a believer having done deeds of righteousness, those -- for them await the most sublime degrees; (75) gardens of perpetual bliss, through which running waters flow, therein to abide: for that shall be the recompense of all who attain to purity. (76)
