Translation

When it is said to them, "Believe in what Allah Hath sent down, "they say, "We believe in what was sent down to us:" yet they reject all besides, even if it be Truth confirming what is with them. Say: "Why then have ye slain the prophets of Allah in times gone by, if ye did indeed believe?"

Tafsir

And when it was said to them, 'Believe in what God has revealed, that is, Al-Qur'an and other [Books], they said, 'We believe in what was revealed to us', that is, the Torah; and (waa, here indicates a circumstantial qualifier) they disbelieve in what is beyond that, what is other than that or what came afterwards, such as Al-Qur'an; yet it is the truth (wa-huwa'l-haqqu is a circumstantial qualifier) confirming (musaddiqan, a second circumstantial qualifier for emphasis) what is with them. Say, to them: 'Why then were you slaying the prophets of God formerly, if you were believers?' in the Torah and in it you were forbidden to kill them: this address, concerning what their forefathers did, is directed towards those present at the time of our Prophet, on account of their approval of it [that is, of what the forefathers had done].
