Translation

"Shall I take (other) gods besides Him? If (Allah) Most Gracious should intend some adversity for me, of no use whatever will be their intercession for me, nor can they deliver me.

Tafsir

Shall I take (a-attakhidu: regarding the two hamzas here, the same applies as mentioned with regard to aandhartuhum above; this is an interrogative meant as a denial) besides Him, in other words, other than Him, [other] gods, idols, whose intercession, [that intercession of theirs] which you assert, if the Compassionate One should wish me any harm, will not avail me in any way, nor will they [be able to] save me? (wa-laa yunqidhoon is an adjectival qualification of aalihatan, 'gods').
