And certainly did We send Moses with Our signs to Pharaoh and his establishment, and he said, "Indeed, I am the messenger of the Lord of the worlds." (46) But when he brought them Our signs, lo, they laughed at them. (47) yet there was not a sign that We showed them that was not greater than its sister, and We seized them with the punishment so that they might return. (48) And they said: O wizard! Entreat thy Lord for us by the pact that He hath made with thee. Lo! we verily will walk aright. (49) But when We removed from them the chastisement, behold, they broke their troth. (50) And the Pharaoh said to his people: "O people, is not mine the kingdom of Egypt and these rivers that flow at my feet? Can you still not comprehend? (51) Am I not better than this contemptible man who can hardly make his meaning clear? (52) “So why was he not bestowed with armlets of gold? Or angels should have come with him staying at his side!” (53) He incited his people to levity and they obeyed him. Surely they were an iniquitous people. (54) So when they made Us wrathful, We took revenge from them We therefore drowned all of them. (55) And We made them a precedent (as a lesson for those coming after them), and an example to later generations. (56)
