Translation

When they entered the presence of David, and he was terrified of them, they said: "Fear not: we are two disputants, one of whom has wronged the other: Decide now between us with truth, and treat us not with injustice, but guide us to the even Path..

Tafsir

When they entered upon David, and he was frightened by them. And they said, 'Do not fear; we are, two disputants (some say that this means 'two groups', in order to agree with the plural person [of the verb dakhaloo, 'they entered']; others say, 'two individuals' with the plural person actually denoting these two; alkhasm may refer to a one or more individuals. These two were angels who had come in the form of two disputants, between whom there [was supposed to have] occurred the situation mentioned - [but] only hypothetically - in order to alert David, peace be upon him, to what he had done: he had ninety nine women but desired the woman of a man who had only her and no other. He [David] had married her and consummated the marriage. One of us has infringed upon the [rights of the] other, so judge justly between us and do not transgress, [do not] be unjust, and guide us, direct us, to the right path', the correct way.
