|7:160||We divided them into twelve tribes, nations; and We inspired Moses, when his people asked him for water, saying: Smite with thy staff the rock! And there gushed forth therefrom twelve springs, so that each tribe knew their drinking-place. And we caused the white cloud to overshadow them and sent down for them the manna and the quails (saying): Eat of the good things wherewith we have provided you. They wronged Us not, but they were wont to wrong themselves.||And We divided them into twelve tribes, as nations; and We revealed to Musa when his people asked him for water: Strike the rock with your staff, so outnowed from it twelve springs; each tribe knew its drinking place; and We made the clouds to give shade over them and We sent to them manna and quails: Eat of the good things We have given you. And they did not do Us any harm, but they did injustice to their own souls.||We divided them into twelve tribes or nations. We directed Moses by inspiration, when his (thirsty) people asked him for water: "Strike the rock with thy staff": out of it there gushed forth twelve springs: Each group knew its own place for water. We gave them the shade of clouds, and sent down to them manna and quails, (saying): "Eat of the good things We have provided for you": (but they rebelled); to Us they did no harm, but they harmed their own souls.||وَقَطَّعْنَهُمْ اثْنَتَيْ عَشْرَةَ اسْبَاطًا امَمًا وَاوْحَيْنَا الَى مُوسَى اذْ اسْتَسْقَهُ قَوْمُهُ انْ اضْرِب بِعَصَاكَ الْحَجَرَ فَانْبَجَسَتْ مِنْهُ اثْنَتَا عَشْرَةَ عَيْنًا قَدْ عَلِمَ كُلُّ انَاسٍ مَشْرَبَهُمْ وَظَلَّلْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ الْغَمَمَ وَانزَلْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ الْمَنَّ وَالسَّلْوَى كُلُوا مِنْ طَيِّبَتِ مَا رَزَقْنَكُم وَمَا ظَلَمُونَا وَلَكِنْ كَانُوا ْ انفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ|
