Translation

And remember We said: "Enter this town, and eat of the plenty therein as ye wish; but enter the gate with humility, in posture and in words, and We shall forgive you your faults and increase (the portion of) those who do good."

Tafsir

And when We said, to them, after they came out of the wilderness, 'Enter this city, either the Holy House [of Jerusalem] (Bayt al-Maqdis) or Jericho (Areehaa), and eat freely therein wherever you will, plentifully and without any restrictions, and enter it at the gate, its gate, prostrating, bowing, and say, 'our request is for [an] exoneration', that is, 'That we be exonerated from our transgressions', and We shall forgive (naghfir: a variant reading has one of the two passive forms yughfar or tughfar, '[they] will be forgiven') you your transgressions and We shall give more to those who are virtuous' - through obedience - in terms of reward.
