وَأَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَىٰ مُوسَىٰ أَنْ أَسْرِ بِعِبَادِيۤ إِنَّكُم مّتَّبَعُونَ
-Ash-Shu‘arâ’ ( الشعراء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And We revealed to Moses, after many years which he spent among them calling them to the truth with God’s signs but all of which only increased them in insolence, [saying], ‘Journey with My servants, the Children of Israel, by night (a variant reading [for an asri] is an isr, from the verb sarā, one form of asrā) go with them by night in the direction of the sea, for indeed you will be pursued’. Pharaoh and his armies will pursue you, but when they enter the sea in pursuit of you, I will deliver you and drown them.
