وَقَالَ فِرۡعَوۡنُ يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلۡمَلَأُ مَا عَلِمۡتُ لَكُم مِّنۡ إِلَٰهٍ غَيۡرِى فَأَوۡقِدۡ لِى يَٰهَٰمَٰنُ عَلَى ٱلطِّينِ فَٱجۡعَل لِّى صَرۡحًا لَّعَلِّىٓ أَطَّلِعُ إِلَىٰٓ إِلَٰهِ مُوسَىٰ وَإِنِّى لَأَظُنُّهُۥ مِنَ ٱلۡكَٰذِبِينَ
Pharaoh said: "O Chiefs! no god do I know for you but myself: therefore, O Haman! light me a (kiln to bake bricks) out of clay, and build me a lofty palace, that I may mount up to the god of Moses: but as far as I am concerned, I think (Moses) is a liar!"<br/>
And Pharaoh said, 'O [members of the] council, I do not know of any god for you other than me. So kindle for me, O Haamaan, [a fire] over the clay, and bake for me bricks [of clay], and make me a tower, a lofty palace, that I may take a look at the god of Moses, to observe him and inspect him; for truly I consider him to be a liar', in his claim of [the existence of] some other god and that he is his messenger.
