قَالُواْ يَٰٓأَبَانَآ إِنَّا ذَهَبۡنَا نَسۡتَبِقُ وَتَرَكۡنَا يُوسُفَ عِندَ مَتَٰعِنَا فَأَكَلَهُ ٱلذِّئۡبُ ۖ وَمَآ أَنتَ بِمُؤۡمِنٍ لَّنَا وَلَوۡ كُنَّا صَٰدِقِينَ
They said: "O our father! We went racing with one another, and left Joseph with our things; and the wolf devoured him.... But thou wilt never believe us even though we tell the truth."<br/>
They said, 'O father, we went competing, shooting, and left Joseph by our things, our clothes, and the wolf ate him. But you would never believe us, even though we speak the truth', before you, you would still have accused us [of lying] in this story, because of your adoration of Joseph, so how much more so when you think ill of us?
