And We send down blessed rain from the sky, bringing forth gardens and grains for harvest,
١٠
and towering palm trees ˹loaded˺ with clustered fruit,
١١
˹as˺ a provision for ˹Our˺ servants. And with this ˹rain˺ We revive a lifeless land. Similar is the emergence ˹from the graves˺.
١٢
Before them, the people of Noah denied ˹the truth,˺ as did the people of the Water-pit,1 Thamûd,
١٣
’Ȃd, Pharaoh, the kinfolk of Lot,
١٤
the residents of the Forest,1 and the people of Tubba’.2 Each rejected ˹their˺ messenger, so My warning was fulfilled.
١٥
Were We incapable of creating ˹them˺ the first time? In fact, they are in doubt about ˹their˺ re-creation.
