2:51
وَإِذْ وَاعَدْنَا مُوسَى أَرْبَعِينَ لَيْلَة ً ثُمَّ اتَّخَذْتُمُ الْعِجْلَ مِنْ بَعْدِه ِِ وَأَنْتُمْ ظَالِمُونَ
Wa 'Idh Wā`adnā Mūsá 'Arba`īna Laylatan Thumma Attakhadhtumu Al-`Ijla Min Ba`dihi Wa 'Antum žālimūna 


And We appointed a meeting time for Moses of forty nights, but then you took the calf after him while you were wicked.

2:54
وَإِذْ قَالَ مُوسَى لِقَوْمِه ِِ يَا قَوْمِ إِنَّكُمْ ظَلَمْتُمْ أَنفُسَكُمْ بِاتِّخَاذِكُمُ الْعِجْلَ فَتُوبُوا إِلَى بَارِئِكُمْ فَاقْتُلُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ ذَلِكُمْ خَيْر ٌ لَكُمْ عِنْدَ بَارِئِكُمْ فَتَابَ عَلَيْكُمْ إِنَّه ُُ هُوَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ
Wa 'Idh Qāla Mūsá Liqawmihi Yā Qawmi 'Innakum žalamtum 'Anfusakum Biāttikhādhikumu Al-`Ijla Fatūbū 'Ilá Bāri'ikum Fāqtulū 'Anfusakum Dhālikum Khayrun Lakum `Inda Bāri'ikum Fatāba `Alaykum 'Innahu Huwa At-Tawwābu Ar-Raĥīmu 


And Moses said to his people: "O my people, you have wronged your souls by taking the calf, so repent to your Maker, and kill yourselves. That is better for you with your Maker, so He would forgive you. He is the Forgiving, the Merciful."

2:92
وَلَقَدْ جَاءَكُمْ مُوسَى بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ ثُمَّ اتَّخَذْتُمُ الْعِجْلَ مِنْ بَعْدِه ِِ وَأَنْتُمْ ظَالِمُونَ
Wa Laqad Jā'akum Mūsá Bil-Bayyināti Thumma Attakhadhtumu Al-`Ijla Min Ba`dihi Wa 'Antum žālimūna 


And Moses had come to you with clear proofs, then you took the calf after him; you were wicked!

2:93
وَإِذْ أَخَذْنَا مِيثَاقَكُمْ وَرَفَعْنَا فَوْقَكُمُ الطُّورَ خُذُوا مَا آتَيْنَاكُمْ بِقُوَّة ٍ وَاسْمَعُوا قَالُوا سَمِعْنَا وَعَصَيْنَا وَأُشْرِبُوا فِي قُلُوبِهِمُ الْعِجْلَ بِكُفْرِهِمْ قُلْ بِئْسَمَا يَأْمُرُكُمْ بِهِ~ِ إِيمَانُكُمْ إِنْ كُنتُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ
Wa 'Idh 'Akhadhnā Mīthāqakum Wa Rafa`nā Fawqakumu Aţ-Ţūra Khudhū Mā 'Ātaynākum Biqūwatin Wa Asma`ū Qālū Sami`nā Wa `Aşaynā Wa 'Ushribū Fī Qulūbihimu Al-`Ijla Bikufrihim Qul Bi'samā Ya'murukum Bihi 'Īmānukum 'In Kuntum Mu'uminīna 


And We took your covenant, and raised the mount above you: "Take what We have given you with strength, and listen." They said: "We hear and disobey!" And they had consumed the calf inside their hearts by their disbelief. Say: "Miserable indeed is what your belief orders of you if you are believers!"

4:153
يَسْأَلُكَ أَهْلُ الْكِتَابِ أَنْ تُنَزِّلَ عَلَيْهِمْ كِتَابا ً مِنَ السَّمَاءِ فَقَدْ سَأَلُوا مُوسَى أَكْبَرَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ فَقَالُوا أَرِنَا اللَّهَ جَهْرَة ً فَأَخَذَتْهُمُ الصَّاعِقَةُ بِظُلْمِهِمْ ثُمَّ اتَّخَذُوا الْعِجْلَ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَتْهُمُ الْبَيِّنَاتُ فَعَفَوْنَا عَنْ ذَلِكَ وَآتَيْنَا مُوسَى سُلْطَانا ً مُبِينا ً
Yas'aluka 'Ahlu Al-Kitābi 'An Tunazzila `Alayhim Kitābāan Mina As-Samā'i Faqad Sa'alū Mūsá 'Akbara Min Dhālika Faqālū 'Arinā Allāha Jahratan Fa'akhadhat/humu Aş-Şā`iqatu Bižulmihim Thumma Attakhadhū Al-`Ijla Min Ba`di Mā Jā'at/humu Al-Bayyinātu Fa`afawnā `An Dhālika Wa 'Ātaynā Mūsá Sulţānāan Mubīnāan 


The people of the Book ask you to bring down to them a book from the heaven. They had asked Moses for even more than that, for they said: "Show us God openly!" So the lightning strike took them for their wickedness. Then they took the calf after the clarity had come to them, and We pardoned them for this; We gave Moses a clear authority.

7:148
وَاتَّخَذَ قَوْمُ مُوسَى مِنْ بَعْدِه ِِ مِنْ حُلِيِّهِمْ عِجْلا ً جَسَدا ً لَه ُُ خُوَارٌ أَلَمْ يَرَوْا أَنَّهُ لاَ يُكَلِّمُهُمْ وَلاَ يَهْدِيهِمْ سَبِيلا ً اتَّخَذُوه ُُ وَكَانُوا ظَالِمِينَ
Wa Attakhadha Qawmu Mūsá Min Ba`dihi Min Ĥulīyihim `Ijlāan Jasadāan Lahu Khuwārun 'Alam Yaraw 'Annahu Lā Yukallimuhum Wa Lā Yahdīhim Sabīlāan Attakhadhūhu Wa Kānū žālimīna 


And the people of Moses, in his absence, made from their ornaments a sculpture of a calf that emitted a cry. Did they not see that it could not speak to them, nor guide them to any way? They took it and they were wicked.

7:152
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا الْعِجْلَ سَيَنَالُهُمْ غَضَب ٌ مِنْ رَبِّهِمْ وَذِلَّة ٌ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَكَذَلِكَ نَجْزِي الْمُفْتَرِينَ
'Inna Al-Ladhīna Attakhadhū Al-`Ijla Sayanāluhum GhaĐabun Min Rabbihim Wa Dhillatun Fī Al-Ĥayāati Ad-Dunyā Wa Kadhalika Najzī Al-Muftarīna 


Those who took the calf will be dealt with a wrath from their Lord and a humiliation in this worldly life. It is such that We punish the fabricators.

11:69
وَلَقَدْ جَاءَتْ رُسُلُنَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ بِالْبُشْرَى قَالُوا سَلاَما ً قَالَ سَلاَم ٌ فَمَا لَبِثَ أَنْ جَاءَ بِعِجْلٍ حَنِيذ ٍ

And Our messengers came to Abraham with good news, they said: "Peace" He said: "Peace," and he made no delay in bringing a roasted calf.

20:88
فَأَخْرَجَ لَهُمْ عِجْلا ً جَسَدا ً لَه ُُ خُوَار ٌ فَقَالُوا هَذَا إِلَهُكُمْ وَإِلَه ُُ مُوسَى فَنَسِيَ
Fa'akhraja Lahum `Ijlāan Jasadāan Lahu Khuwārun Faqālū Hādhā 'Ilahukum Wa 'Ilahu Mūsá Fanasiya 


He then produced for them a sculpture of a calf that emitted a cry. So they said: "This is your god and the god of Moses, but he had forgotten!"

51:26
فَرَاغَ إِلَى أَهْلِه ِِ فَجَاءَ بِعِجْل ٍ سَمِين ٍ
Farāgha 'Ilá 'Ahlihi Fajā'a Bi`ijlin Samīnin 


Then he went to his family and brought a fat calf.
