Translation

We gave Moses the Book, and made it a Guide to the Children of Israel, (commanding): "Take not other than Me as Disposer of (your) affairs."

Tafsir

God, exalted be He, says: And We gave Moses the Scripture, the Torah, and made it a guidance for the Israelites [saying] that they should not choose beside Me any guardian, to whom they delegate their affairs (a variant reading [for yattakhidhoo, 'they should [not] choose'] is tattakhidhoo, 'you should [not] choose', thus turning away [from the third person address], in which case [the particle] an, 'that', is extra and the 'saying' is implicit).
