He said: "I have been sent by the Lord of all the worlds." 46 But as soon as he came before them with Our [miraculous] signs, lo! they derided them, 47 And every token that We showed them was greater than its sister (token), and We grasped them with the torment, that haply they might turn again. 48 And they said, "O thou sorcerer! Invoke thy Lord for us according to His covenant with thee; for we shall truly accept guidance." 49 But when We eased them of the torment, behold! they broke their word. 50 And Firon proclaimed amongst his people: O my people! is not the kingdom of Egypt mine? And these rivers flow beneath me; do you not then see? 51 "Am I not better than this (Moses), who is a contemptible wretch and can scarcely express himself clearly? 52 Wherefore, then, have bracelets of gold not been set upon him, and wherefore have not angels come with him accompanying 53 Then he incited his people and they obeyed him; verily they were ever a transgressing people. 54 But when they continued to challenge Us, We inflicted Our retribution on them, and drowned them all: 55 And We made them a precedent (as a lesson for those coming after them), and an example to later generations. 56
