007.144 (God) said: "O Moses! I have chosen thee above (other) men, by the mission I (have given thee) and the words I (have spoken to thee): take then the (revelation) which I give thee, and be of those who give thanks."
007.145 And We ordained laws for him in the tablets in all matters, both commanding and explaining all things, (and said): "Take and hold these with firmness, and enjoin thy people to hold fastby the best in the precepts: soon shall I show you the homes of the wicked-- (How they lie desolate)."
007.146 Those who behave arrogantly on the earth in defiance of right - them will I turn away from My signs: Even if they see all the Signs, they will not believe in them; and if they see the way of right conduct, they will not adopt it as the Way; but if theysee the way of error, that is the Way they will adopt. For they have rejected our Signs, and failed to take warning from them.
007.147 Those who reject Our Signs and the Meeting in the Hereafter-- vain are their deeds: Can they expect to be rewardedexcept as they have wrought?
007.148 The people of Moses made, in his absence, out of their ornaments, the image of calf, (for worship): itseemed to low: did they not see that it could neither speak to them, nor show them the Way? They took it for worship and they did wrong.
007.149 When they repented, and saw that they had erred, they said: "If our Lord have not mercy upon us and forgive us, we shall indeed be of those who perish." 007.150 When Moses came back to his people, angry and grieved, he said: "Evil it is that ye have done in my place in my absence: did ye make haste to bring on the judgment of your Lord?" He put down the tablets, seized his brother by (the hair of)his head, and dragged him to him. Aaron said:"Son of my mother! the people did indeed reckon me as naught, and went near to slaying me! Make not the enemies rejoice over my misfortune, nor count thou me amongst the people ofsin."
007.151 Moses prayed:"O my Lord! forgive meand my brother! admit us to Thy mercy! for Thou art the Most Merciful of those who show mercy!"
007.152 Those who took the calf (for worship) will indeed be overwhelmed with wrath from their Lord, and with shame in thislife: thus do We recompense those who invent (falsehoods).
007.153 But those whodo wrong but repent thereafter and (truly) believe-- verily thy Lordis thereafter Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
007.154 When the anger of Moses was appeased, he took up the tablets: in the writing thereon was guidance and Mercy forsuch as fear their Lord.
007.155 And Moses chose seventy of his people for Our place of meeting: when they were seized with violent quaking, he prayed: "O my Lord! if ithad been Thy will Thoucouldst have destroyed, long before,both them and me: wouldst Thou destroy us for the deeds of the foolish ones among us? this is no more than Thy trial: byit Thou causest whomThou wilt to stray, andThou leadest whom Thou wilt into the rightpath. Thou art our Protector: so forgive us and give us Thy mercy; for Thou art the best of those whoforgive. 007.156 "And ordain forus that which is good, in this life and in the Hereafter: for we haveturned unto Thee." He said: "With My punishment I visit whom I will; but My mercy extendeth to all things. That (mercy) I shall ordain for those who do right, and practise regular charity, and those whobelieve in Our Signs--
007.157 "Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (Scriptures)-- in the Law and the Gospel;- for he commands them whatis just and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. Soit is those who believe in him, honour him, helphim, and follow the light which is sent down with him, - it is they who will prosper."
007.158 Say: "O men! I am sent unto you all, as the Messenger of God, to Whom belongeth the dominionof the heavens and the earth: there is no god but He: it is He That giveth both life and death. So believe inGod and His Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, who believeth in God and His words: follow him that (so) ye may be guided."
007.159 Of the people of Moses there is a section who guide and do justice in the light of truth.
