that they will encounter their Lord,
and that they will return to Him.
47 O Children of Israel,
remember My blessing which I bestowed upon you,
and that I gave you an advantage over all the nations.
48 Beware of the day
when no soul shall compensate for another,
neither any intercession shall be accepted from it,
nor any ransom shall be received from it,
nor will they be helped.
49 And when We delivered you from Pharaoh’s clan
who inflicted a terrible torment on you,
and slaughtered your sons
and spared your women,
and in that there was
a great test from your Lord.
50 And when We parted the sea with you,1
and We delivered you
and drowned Pharaoh’s clan
as you looked on.
51 And when We made an appointment with Moses
for forty nights,
you took up the Calf [for worship]
in his absence,
and you were wrongdoers.
52 Then We excused you after that
so that you might give thanks.
53 And when We gave Moses the Book

1 That is, through your entering it.
