Translation

Thus have We revealed it to be a judgment of authority in Arabic. Wert thou to follow their (vain) desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldst thou find neither protector nor defender against Allah.

Tafsir

And so, just like that [manner of] revelation, We have revealed it, that is, Al-Qur'an, as a [decisive] judgement in Arabic, in the language of the Arabs, for you to judge thereby between people. And if you should follow their whims, that is, [those of] the disbelievers, in that to which they summon you of their creed, hypothetically [speaking], after what has come to you of knowledge, of God's Oneness, you shall have no protector, to assist you, against God (mina'Llaahi min: the [second] min is extra) and no defender, to ward off His chastisement.
