Sura 7
Aya 155
وَاختارَ موسىٰ قَومَهُ سَبعينَ رَجُلًا لِميقاتِنا ۖ فَلَمّا أَخَذَتهُمُ الرَّجفَةُ قالَ رَبِّ لَو شِئتَ أَهلَكتَهُم مِن قَبلُ وَإِيّايَ ۖ أَتُهلِكُنا بِما فَعَلَ السُّفَهاءُ مِنّا ۖ إِن هِيَ إِلّا فِتنَتُكَ تُضِلُّ بِها مَن تَشاءُ وَتَهدي مَن تَشاءُ ۖ أَنتَ وَلِيُّنا فَاغفِر لَنا وَارحَمنا ۖ وَأَنتَ خَيرُ الغافِرينَ

Laleh Bakhtiar

And Moses chose of his folk seventy men for Our time appointed. And when the quaking of the earth took them, he said: Lord! If Thou wilt, Thou wouldst cause them to perish and me before. Wouldst Thou cause us to perish for what the foolish among us accomplished? It is not but Thy test. With it Thou wilt cause to go astray whom Thou wilt and Thou wilt guide whom Thou hadst willed. Thou art our protector, so forgive us and have mercy on us for Thou art Best of the ones who forgive.
