وَلَقَدۡ ءَاتَيۡنَا دَاوُۥدَ مِنَّا فَضۡلًا ۖ يَٰجِبَالُ أَوِّبِى مَعَهُۥ وَٱلطَّيۡرَ ۖ وَأَلَنَّا لَهُ ٱلۡحَدِيدَ
We bestowed Grace aforetime on David from ourselves: "O ye Mountains! Sing ye back the Praises of Allah with him! and ye birds (also)! And We made the iron soft for him;-<br/>
And verily We bestowed on David a [great] favour from Us - prophethood and scripture - and We said: 'O mountains, repeat with him [in praise], by making glorifications, and the birds [too]!' (read wa'l-tayra in the accusative as a supplement to the [syntactical] locus of jibaal, 'mountains', in other words, and We also called on them to glorify [God] with him). And We made iron malleable for him, so that it was as dough in his hands.
