Translation

Behold, ye received it on your tongues, and said out of your mouths things of which ye had no knowledge; and ye thought it to be a light matter, while it was most serious in the sight of Allah.

Tafsir

when you were receiving it [welcomingly] with your tongues, that is to say, [when] you were reporting it one from the other (one of the two letters taa' has been omitted from the verb [tatalaqqawnahu, 'you were receiving it']; idh, 'when', is dependent because of massakum, 'befallen you', or afadtum, 'engaged in') and were uttering with your mouths that whereof you had no knowledge, supposing it to be a light matter, a sinless [act], while with God it was grave, in sinfulness.
