وَقَالُواْ يَٰٓأَيُّهَ ٱلسَّاحِرُ ٱدۡعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ بِمَا عَهِدَ عِندَكَ إِنَّنَا لَمُهۡتَدُونَ
And they said, "O thou sorcerer! Invoke thy Lord for us according to His covenant with thee; for we shall truly accept guidance."<br/>
And they said, to Moses, upon seeing the chastisement, 'O sorcerer! - that is to say, '[O] knowledgeable, perfect one', since for them sorcery was an awesome [form of] knowledge - supplicate your Lord for us by the covenant that He has made with you, [to the effect] that He would relieve us from chastisement if we believe. Assuredly we will be guided', that is to say, [we will become] believers.
