Sura 8
Aya 33
وَما كانَ اللَّهُ لِيُعَذِّبَهُم وَأَنتَ فيهِم ۚ وَما كانَ اللَّهُ مُعَذِّبَهُم وَهُم يَستَغفِرونَ

Muhammad Asad

But God did not choose thus to chastise them when thou [O Prophet] wert still among them,1 nor would God chastise them when they [might yet] ask for forgiveness.
  • I.e., in Mecca, before the exodus to Medina.
