This is “Appendix A.12: The Qur’anic Verses on Moses in the Chapter of an-Naml (Ants) (27.7-14)” of the book The Mystery of Israel in Ancient Egypt: The Exodus in the Qur’an, the Old Testament, Archaeological Finds, and Historical Sources

When Moses said to his family: “I have perceived a fire that I might bring you tidings from or a burning brand that you might warm yourselves” (27.7). When he came to it (the fire), he was called that “blessed is that who is in the fire and that who is around it, and glory be to Allah the Lord of all peoples (27.8). O Moses! It is Me, Allah, the Mighty, the Wise (27.9). Throw down your staff.” When he saw it moving like a snake he fled without tracing his steps. [He was called]: “O Moses! Do not fear for messengers are not to fear in My presence (27.10). As for the others, those who do wrong and then substitute good for evil, I am forgiving, merciful (27.11). Enter your hand to your bosom and it will come forth white without harm. These are among nine signs to Pharaoh and his people; they are a rebellious people” (27.12). When Our clear signs came to them, they said: “This is a manifest magic” (27.13). They denied them while their souls were certain they were true, out of wrongdoing and arrogance. See what the end of the doers of corruption was (27.14).
