And when the wizards came they said unto Pharaoh: Will there surely be a reward for us if we are the winners?
He said: Aye, and ye will then surely be of those brought near (to me).
Moses said unto them: Throw what ye are going to throw!
Then they threw down their cords and their staves and said: By Pharaoh´s might, lo! we verily are the winners.
Then Moses threw his staff and lo! it swallowed that which they did falsely show.
And the wizards were flung prostrate,
Crying: We believe in the Lord of the Worlds,
The Lord of Moses and Aaron.
(Pharaoh) said: Ye put your faith in him before I give you leave. Lo! he doubtless is your chief who taught you magic! But verily ye shall come to know. Verily I will cut off your hands and your feet alternately, and verily I will crucify you every one.
They said: It is no hurt, for lo! unto our Lord we shall return.
Lo! we ardently hope that our Lord will forgive us our sins because we are the first of the believers.
And We inspired Moses, saying: Take away My slaves by night, for ye will be pursued.
Then Pharaoh sent into the cities summoners,
(Who said): Lo! these indeed are but a little troop,
And lo! they are offenders against us.
And lo! we are a ready host.
Thus did We take them away from gardens and watersprings,
And treasures and a fair estate.
Thus (were those things taken from them) and We caused the Children of Israel to inherit them.
And they overtook them at sunrise.
