Translation

They said: "Beseech on our behalf Thy Lord to make plain to us what (heifer) it is!" He said; "He says: The heifer should be neither too old nor too young, but of middling age. Now do what ye are commanded!"

Tafsir

But when they realised that he was being serious, They said, 'Pray to your Lord for us, that He may make clear to us what she may be', its true nature, He, Moses, said, 'He, God, says she is a cow neither old, nor virgin, that is, young, middling between the two, in terms of age; so do what you have been commanded', by way of sacrificing it.
