HENCE, [remember how it was] when thy Sustainer summoned Moses: "Go unto those evil doing people. (10) the people of Pharaoh, will they not fear God? (11) He said: my Lord! verily I fear they shall belie me. (12) And that my breast will tighten and my tongue will not be fluent, so send for Aaron. (13) And they have upon me a [claim due to] sin, so I fear that they will kill me." (14) Allah said: "Nay! Go you both with Our Signs. Verily! We shall be with you, listening. (15) "And when you both come to Fir'aun (Pharaoh), say: 'We are the Messengers of the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists), (16) that you let the Children of Israel go with us.'" (17) Fir'awn said: brought we not thee up amongst us as a child? And thou tarriedst amongst us for many years of thy life? (18) "And you did your deed, which you did (i.e. the crime of killing a man). And you are one of the ingrates." (19) (Moses) replied: "I did do that and I was in the wrong, (20) So I fled from you when I feared you. Then my Lord granted me wisdom and prophethood and appointed me [as one] of the messengers. (21) And is it a favor of which you remind me that you have enslaved the children of Israel? (22) Pharaoh said: And what is the Lord of the Worlds? (23) He said: Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is in-between, if ye seek to be convinced. (24) (Firon) said to those around him: Do you not hear? (25) He said: Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers. (26) (Pharaoh) said: 'Surely, the Messenger who has been sent to you is mad!' (27) He said, 'The Lord of the East and West, and what between them is, if you have understanding,' (28) Said he: If you will take a god besides me, I will most certainly make you one of the imprisoned. (29) He said, 'What, even though I brought thee something so manifest?' (30) (The Pharaoh) said: "Then bring it, if you speak the truth." (31) So Moosa put down his staff and it became a visible serpent. (32) And he drew out his hand, and behold, it was white to all beholders! (33)
