Ayah

وَإِذۡ قُلۡنَا ٱدۡخُلُواْ هَٰذِهِ ٱلۡقَرۡيَةَ فَكُلُواْ مِنۡهَا حَيۡثُ شِئۡتُمۡ رَغَدًا وَٱدۡخُلُواْ ٱلۡبَابَ سُجَّدًا وَقُولُواْ حِطَّةٌ نَّغۡفِرۡ لَكُمۡ خَطَٰيَٰكُمۡ ۚ وَسَنَزِيدُ ٱلۡمُحۡسِنِينَ

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."<br/>

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.
