Pharoah's Repentance

The allegation is as follows: Pharaoh's repentance in the face of death? According to Sura 10:90-92, Pharaoh repented "in the sight of death" and was saved. But Sura 4:18 says that such a thing can't happen. This claim is based on a misinterpretation of verse 10:92, the explanation of which has been mentioned in a preceding article Regarding Pharoah's Fate. Pharoah was not saved, rather he drowned. Thus, verse 4:18 is correct when it states: 4:18 Of no effect is the repentance of those who continue to do evil, until death faces one of them, and he says, "Now have I repented indeed;" nor of those who die rejecting Faith: for them have We prepared a punishment most grievous. In conclusion, there is no contradiction between the verses.
