Surely in this is a sign. Yet most of them would not believe.

˹Remember˺ when your Lord called out to Moses, “Go to the wrongdoing people—
١١
the people of Pharaoh. Will they not fear ˹Allah˺?”
١٢
He replied, “My Lord! I fear that they will reject me.
١٣
And ˹so˺ my heart will be broken and my tongue will be tied. So send Aaron along ˹as a messenger˺.
١٤
Also, they have a charge against me,1 so I fear they may kill me.”
١٥
Allah responded, “Certainly not! So go, both of you, with Our signs. We will be with you, listening.
١٦
Go to Pharaoh and say, ‘We are messengers from the Lord of all worlds,
١٧
˹commanded to say:˺ ‘Let the Children of Israel go with us.’’”
١٨
Pharaoh protested, “Did we not raise you among us as a child, and you stayed several years of your life in our care?
١٩
Then you did what you did,1 being ˹utterly˺ ungrateful!”
