Translation

"Turn ye back to your father, and say, 'O our father! behold! thy son committed theft! we bear witness only to what we know, and we could not well guard against the unseen!

Tafsir

Go back to your father and say, "O our father, your son has indeed stolen and we testified, against him, only regarding what we knew, from the certainty of having seen the [king's] cup in his saddlebag; we could not have guarded against the Unseen, that which was hidden from us, when we gave our pledge: had we known that he would steal, we would not have taken him [with us to Egypt].
