{10:22} It is He who enables you to travel in the land and in the sea until, when you are in ships and they sail with them by a good wind and they rejoice therein, there comes a storm wind and the waves come upon them from everywhere and they assume that they are surrounded, they [then] call upon God, being sincere to Him in religion, "If You should save us from this, we will surely be among the thankful."

{10:23} But when He saves them, at once they commit injustice upon the earth without right. O mankind, your injustice is only against yourselves, [being merely] the enjoyment of worldly life. Then to Us is your return, and We will inform you of what you used to do.
