We brought the Children of Israel across the sea. Then Pharaoh and his soldiers pursued them unjustly and oppressively. But as Pharaoh was drowning, he cried out, “I believe that there is no god except that in whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am ˹now˺ one of those who submit.”
˹He was told,˺ “Now ˹you believe˺? But you always disobeyed and were one of the corruptors.
Today We will preserve your corpse so that you may become an example1 for those who come after you. And surely most people are heedless of Our examples!”
