This is “Appendix A.10: The Qur’anic Verses on Moses in the Chapter of az-Zukhruf (Ornaments) (43.46-55)” of the book The Mystery of Israel in Ancient Egypt: The Exodus in the Qur’an, the Old Testament, Archaeological Finds, and Historical Sources

We also sent Moses with Our signs to Pharaoh and his chiefs, and he said: “I am the messenger of the Lord of all peoples” (43.46). But when he came to them with Our signs, they laughed at them (43.47). We did not show them a sign but it was greater than its fellow, and We seized them with a torment that they may return (43.48). They said: “O you magician! Pray to your Lord for us, by whatever covenant He has with you, and we shall be guided” (43.49). But when We removed the torment from them they broke the promise (43.50). Pharaoh proclaimed among his people: “O my people! Do I not possess the kingdom of Egypt, and these rivers flow beneath me? Do you not see (43.51)? Am I not better than this fellow (Moses) who is contemptible and can hardly speak clearly (43.52)? Why then have bracelets of gold not been cast on him or angels not come with him conjoined” (43.53)? He fooled his people so they obeyed him. They were ungodly people (43.54). When they angered Us, We took revenge on them and drowned them all (43.55).
