Translation

Said Pharaoh: "Leave me to slay Moses; and let him call on his Lord! What I fear is lest he should change your religion, or lest he should cause mischief to appear in the land!"

Tafsir

And Pharaoh said, 'Let me slay Moses - for they used to restrain him from slaying him - and let him call to his Lord, to defend him against me. Indeed I fear that he may change your religion, [involving] your worship of me, so that you will then follow him [in his religion], or that he may cause corruption to appear in the land', by [initiating] killing and otherwise (a variant reading [for wa-an, 'and that'] is aw-an, 'or that'; a variant reading [for an yuzhira fee'l-ardi'l-fasaada] is [the impersonal construction] an yazhara fee'l-ardi'l-fasaadu, 'that corruption may appear in the land').
