Translation

(But) among (their) Allah-fearing men were two on whom Allah had bestowed His grace: They said: "Assault them at the (proper) Gate: when once ye are in, victory will be yours; But on Allah put your trust if ye have faith."

Tafsir

There said, to them, two men of those who feared, contravening God's command, and these were Joshua and Caleb - who were from among the leaders that Moses dispatched to bring back news of those giants - to whom God had been gracious, by making them virtuous, for they concealed what they had discovered about the giants, telling only Moses, unlike the other leaders, who divulged the news, and so the people became cowardly. 'Enter against them by the gate!, the gate of the town, and have no fear of them, for they are bodies without hearts. For if you enter by it, you will be victorious: the two [Joshua and Caleb] said this because they were certain of God's assistance and the fulfilment of His promise. Put your trust in God, if you are believers'.
