This is “Appendix A.11: The Qur’anic Verses on Moses in the Chapter of al-Ma’ida (The Table) (5.20-26)” 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 people: “O my people! Remember the favor of Allah on you when He made prophets among you and made you kings and gave you what He has not given to any of the other peoples (5.20). O my people! Enter the holy land which Allah has decreed for you and do not turn back, otherwise you would turn about losers” (5.21). They said: “O Moses! There is a mighty people in it; we will not enter it until they go out of it. If they go out, we will enter it” (5.22). Then two men who fear [God] whom Allah has given favor to said: “Enter on them by the gate. Once you have entered you will be victorious. Put your trust in Allah if you are believers” (5.23). They said: “O Moses! We will never enter it as long as they are in it. Go you and your Lord and fight. We will sit here” (5.24). He said: “My Lord! I do not control other than myself and my brother, so separate between us and the rebellious people” (5.25). He said: “It shall then be forbidden for them for forty years in which they shall wander in the earth, so do not grieve for the rebellious people” (5.26).
