This is “Appendix A.9: The Qur’anic Verses on Moses in the Chapter of ad-Dukhan (Smoke) (44.17-33)” 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 tried the people of Pharaoh before them and there came to them a noble messenger (44.17), [saying]: “Deliver to me Allah’s servant; I am a trustworthy messenger to you (44.18). Do not exult yourselves above Allah; I have come to you with a manifest authority (44.19). I seek refuge in my and your Lord that you do not stone me (44.20). If you do not believe me then leave me alone” (44.21). Then he prayed to his Lord that these are a sinful people (44.22). [We told him]: “Take away My servants by night. You will be followed (44.23). Leave the sea dry; they are a host to be drowned” (44.24). They left behind many gardens (44.25), crops, a noble dwelling (44.26), and favors in which they enjoyed themselves (44.27). Thus, We made another people inherit them (44.28). The heaven and the earth did not weep for them, and they were not respited (44.29). We saved the Children of Israel from the degrading torment (44.30) — from Pharaoh; he was haughty; one of the extravagant (44.31). We chose them knowingly above all peoples (44.32). We gave them signs in which there was a manifest trial (44.33).
