Did you notice?

71:1  We did indeed send Noah to his people: "Warn your people before a painful punishment afflicts them!"
71:2  He said, "O my people! I am indeed sent to give you a plain warning"
71:3  "That you should worship Allah, and fear Him, and obey me!"
71:4  "HE will forgive you some of your sins, and give you respite till an appointed time. When the Allah appointed time comes, it cannot be deferred, if only you knew!"
71:5  [Noah later] said, "My Lord! I have indeed preached to my people night and day."
71:6  "My preaching however has only drove them farther away!"
71:7  "And, indeed, whenever I preached to them [to come to the Right Path] so that You might forgive them, they put their fingers into their ears, covered themselves up in their garments, grew obstinate, and became arrogant with false pride."
71:8  "And I did indeed preach to them loud and clear."
71:9  "And then I spoke to them in public; and I confided to them privately."
71:10  "And I said, `Ask your Lord to forgive you. He is indeed most forgiving!'"
71:11  "`He will make the sky pour rain on you in abundance.'"
71:12  "`And He will help you with wealth and children, and will make gardens for you, and will generate rivers for you.'"
71:13  What is the matter with you that you do not attribute Grandeur to Allah
71:14  And He has surely created you [mankind] of diverse sorts and conditions
71:15  Do you not see how Allah has created seven heavens one over another?
71:16  And He has made within these, the moon a light [reflected], and the sun, a [radiant] lamp
71:17  And Allah has grown you from the earth like a plant.
71:18  Thereafter He will restore you to it [when you die]. And He will bring you out in resurrection
71:19  And Allah has made the earth spread out for you
71:20  So that you might thread thereon a network of spacious paths
71:21  Noah said, "My Lord! They have disobeyed me all along, and they follow one whose wealth and children increase nothing but their loss."
71:22  "And they plotted a great plot!"
71:23  And they told [their followers], "Abandon not your gods: abandon not Wadd, Suwa', Yaghuth, Ya'uq or Nasr!"
71:24  "And they have verily led many astray. And [O Allah] increase nothing but their delusion for these wicked people!"
71:25  They [those wicked persons] were drowned because of their sins, and are doomed to enter the Fire [in the Hereafter]. And they found none to help them against Allah
71:26  And Noah prayed, "My Lord! Leave not any of those who suppress the Truth to inhabit on the earth."
71:27  "If You do indeed leave them, they will lead those who worship You astray, and will give birth to none but wicked and ingrate progeny."
71:28  "My Lord! Grant forgiveness to me, to my parents, to everyone who enters my house as a believer, and to all believing men and women. And grant increase in nothing buttheir destruction for the wicked people!"
