The triliteral root jīm ʿayn lām (ج ع ل) occurs in the Quran 346 times.

(2:19) Or like a storm from the sky, in it are darkness, thunder, and lightning. They place (Arab. يَجْعَلُونَ, yajʿalūna) their fingers in their ears from thunderclaps out of fear of death; and God is aware of the ingrates.

(23:50) And We made (Arab. وَجَعَلْنَا, wajaʿalnā) the son of Mary and his mother a sign, and We gave them refuge on high ground, a place for resting and with a water spring

Establishing The Earth

(13:3) And He is the One who solidified The Earth (crust), and He established (Arab. وَجَعَلَ, wajaʿala) on it mountain ranges and rivers, and from every fruit He made (Arab. جَعَلَ, jaʿala) on it, a pair of two. He (causes) the night to cover the day. Verily, in that are (solid) signs for a people who use allegorical thinking.
