Translation

Fulfil the Covenant of Allah when ye have entered into it, and break not your oaths after ye have confirmed them; indeed ye have made Allah your surety; for Allah knoweth all that ye do.

Tafsir

And fulfil God's covenant, [effected] by way of pledges of allegiance and oaths and in other ways, when you made a covenant, and do not break [your] oaths after pledging them and having made God surety over you, that you will fulfill [the covenant], for you have sworn [the oath] by Him (the sentence wa-qad ja'altumu'Llaaha 'alaykum kafeelan, 'and having made God surety over you', is a circumstantial qualifier). Truly God knows what you do - [this is] a threat for them.
