So God seized him, He destroyed him by drowning him, as punishment for the latter, that is to say, these [last] words [of his], and for the former, that is to say, his saying previously, 'I do not know of any god for you other than me' [Q. 28:38] - and between the two [claims made by Pharaoh] was an interval of forty years.
