إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّخَذُواْ ٱلۡعِجۡلَ سَيَنَالُهُمۡ غَضَبٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِمۡ وَذِلَّةٌ فِى ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا ۚ وَكَذَٰلِكَ نَجۡزِى ٱلۡمُفۡتَرِينَ
Those who took the calf (for worship) will indeed be overwhelmed with wrath from their Lord, and with shame in this life: thus do We recompense those who invent (falsehoods).<br/>
God, exalted be He, says, 'Surely those who chose the calf, as a god. wrath, chastisement, and abasement shall come upon them from their Lord in the life of this world: and so they were punished [for this deed] by the command to slay themselves, and abasement was stamped upon them until the Day of Resurrection. Even, as We have requited them, so We requite those who invent lies, against God by way of idolatry and otherwise.
