Translation

Such (was) Jesus the son of Mary: (it is) a statement of truth, about which they (vainly) dispute.

Tafsir

That is Jesus, son of Mary, a statement of truth (read qawlu'l-haqqi, as the predicate of an implied subject, in other words, 'the statement of the son of Mary [is a statement of truth]'; or read qawla'l-haqqi, because of [it being the object of] an implied [verb] qultu, 'I say', meaning, '[I say] a statement of truth') concerning which they are in doubt (yamtaroona, derives from [the infinitive] al-mirya) - they are the Christians, who say, 'Indeed Jesus is the son of God'; [but] they lie.
