28 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Bee (Al-nahl) before Abraham (Ibrahim)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
BEHOLD. We sent Noah unto his people. [Saying:] "Warn thy people ere grievous suffering befall them! (1) Noah said: “My people, I have certainly been sent as a clear warner to you, (2) "That you should worship Allah (Alone), be dutiful to Him, and obey me, (3) and He will forgive you your sins, and defer you to a stated term; God's term, when it comes, cannot be deferred, did you but know."' (4) He said: My Lord! Lo! I have called unto my people night and day (5) but my call has only increased them in running away. (6) And verily so oft as I call them, that Thou mayest forgive them, they place their fingers into their ears, and wrap themselves with their garments, and persist, and are stiff-necked. (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; surely He is Most Forgiving. (10) He will send you abundant rain from the sky, (11) "'Give you increase in wealth and sons; and bestow on you gardens and bestow on you rivers (of flowing water). (12) What is the matter with you that you deny the greatness of God, (13) seeing He created you by stages? (14) Behold ye not in what wise Allah hath created seven heavens in storeys. (15) and made the moon therein a light, and made the sun a lamp, (16) how God has produced you from the earth and caused you to grow, (17) He will make you return to it and then take you out of it again. (18) ‘And it is Allah Who made the earth a bed for you.’ (19) That ye may thread the valley-ways thereof. (20)
