قَالُواْ يَٰشُعَيۡبُ مَا نَفۡقَهُ كَثِيرًا مِّمَّا تَقُولُ وَإِنَّا لَنَرَىٰكَ فِينَا ضَعِيفًا ۖ وَلَوۡلَا رَهۡطُكَ لَرَجَمۡنَٰكَ ۖ وَمَآ أَنتَ عَلَيۡنَا بِعَزِيزٍ
They said: "O Shu'aib! much of what thou sayest we do not understand! In fact among us we see that thou hast no strength! Were it not for thy family, we should certainly have stoned thee! for thou hast among us no great position!"<br/>
They said, in proclamation of their lack of concern: 'O Shu'ayb, we do not understand much of what you say. Truly we see you are weak, abject, among us, and were it not for your clan, we would have stoned you; for you are not, too, powerful, [too] venerable, for us', to stone, but it is your clan that is powerful.
