Translation

"This man is my brother: He has nine and ninety ewes, and I have (but) one: Yet he says, 'commit her to my care,' and is (moreover) harsh to me in speech."

Tafsir

'Behold, this brother of mine, in other words, my fellow co-religionist, has ninety-nine ewes - here used to represent the women - while I have a single ewe; yet he said, "Entrust it to me", in other words, make me in charge of it, and he overcame me in speech', in other words, in the argument; so the latter conceded charge of it to him.
