Translation

And other gains (there are), which are not within your power, but which Allah has compassed: and Allah has power over all things.

Tafsir

and others (wa-ukhraa is an adjectival qualification of the implied subject maghaanima, 'spoils') which you were not able to capture - namely, [spoils] from the Persians and the Byzantines; God has verily encompassed these [already], that is to say, He knows that they will be yours. And God has power over all things, that is to say, He is ever possessed of such an attribute.
