28 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Bee (Al-nahl) before Abraham (Ibrahim)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
We sent Noah to his people (and directed him): “Warn your people before a grievous chastisement comes upon them.” (1) He said: O my people! Lo! I am a plain warner unto you (2) that you serve Allah and fear Him, and follow me; (3) That He may forgive you somewhat of your sins and respite you to an appointed term. Lo! the term of Allah, when it cometh, cannot be delayed, if ye but knew. (4) He said: O my Lord! surely I have called my people by night and by day! (5) but the more I called, the farther they fled. (6) And whenever I have called them that Thou mayest forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears, cover themselves with their garments, and persist and are puffed up with pride: (7) Then verily I have called unto them publicly (8) Then I conveyed the message to them, again, both in public and in private, (9) "I said (to them): 'Ask forgiveness from your Lord; Verily, He is Oft-Forgiving; (10) He will send down upon you the cloud, pouring down abundance of rain: (11) and give to you wealth and sons, and provide you with gardens and rivers. (12) What has come upon you that you do not fear the majesty of God, (13) "'Seeing that it is He that has created you in diverse stages? (14) Do you not see how God has created the seven heavens one above another, (15) And made the moon therein a light, and made the sun a lamp? (16) And Allah hath caused you to grow from the earth as a growth. (17) Then He returns you to it, then will He bring you forth a (new) bringing forth: (18) "'And God has made the earth a wide expanse for you, (19) that thereof you may thread ways, ravines." (20)
