وَإِذۡ قُلۡتُمۡ يَٰمُوسَىٰ لَن نَّصۡبِرَ عَلَىٰ طَعَامٖ وَٰحِدٖ فَٱدۡعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ يُخۡرِجۡ لَنَا مِمَّا تُنۢبِتُ ٱلۡأَرۡضُ مِنۢ بَقۡلِهَا وَقِثَّآئِهَا وَفُومِهَا وَعَدَسِهَا وَبَصَلِهَاۖ قَالَ أَتَسۡتَبۡدِلُونَ ٱلَّذِي هُوَ أَدۡنَىٰ بِٱلَّذِي هُوَ خَيۡرٌۚ ٱهۡبِطُواْ مِصۡرٗا فَإِنَّ لَكُم مَّا سَأَلۡتُمۡۗ وَضُرِبَتۡ عَلَيۡهِمُ ٱلذِّلَّةُ وَٱلۡمَسۡكَنَةُ وَبَآءُو بِغَضَبٖ مِّنَ ٱللَّهِۗ ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمۡ كَانُواْ يَكۡفُرُونَ بِ‍َٔايَٰتِ ٱللَّهِ وَيَقۡتُلُونَ ٱلنَّبِيِّ‍ۧنَ بِغَيۡرِ ٱلۡحَقِّۗ ذَٰلِكَ بِمَا عَصَواْ وَّكَانُواْ يَعۡتَدُونَ


And (remember) when you said: “O Musa (), we are not contented with one kind of food. Hence, pray to your Creator to provide us what earth grows (in the form of) vegetables, cucumbers, wheat (or garlic), lentils and onions. Musa () said: “Do you wish to exchange the better food with the lower grade of food? (If, however you don’t listen to me) enter the big city (metropolis), you will find what you have requested for. And they were inflicted by humiliation, misery, and they returned with the wrath of Allah. This is because they disbelieved the revelations of Allah and killed the Prophets unjustly. This was also because they disobeyed Allah and transgressed beyond limits
