The sea in the Qur’an

And it is He who tamed the Sea, that from it you might feed on flesh tender and fresh, and pull fineries to costume yourselves with, and see the ships plying its waters.  That you might desire His bounty.  Perchance you would give thanks.

The Holy Qur’an, The Bee (16:14)

Quoted from Engseng Ho, The Graves of Tarim
