حَدَّثَنَا إِسْحَاقُ، قَالَ‏:‏ أَخْبَرَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي، عَنْ يَزِيدَ النَّحْوِيِّ، عَنْ عِكْرِمَةَ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ‏:‏ ‏{‏وَالشُّعَرَاءُ يَتَّبِعُهُمُ الْغَاوُونَ‏}‏ إِلَى قَوْلِهِ‏:‏ ‏{‏وَأَنَّهُمْ يَقُولُونَ مَا لاَ يَفْعَلُونَ‏}‏، فَنَسَخَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ وَاسْتَثْنَى فَقَالَ‏:‏ ‏{‏إِلاَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا‏}‏ إِلَى قَوْلِهِ‏:‏ ‏{‏يَنْقَلِبُونَ‏}‏‏.‏
