Ayah

لَقَدۡ أَخَذۡنَا مِيثَٰقَ بَنِىٓ إِسۡرَٰٓءِيلَ وَأَرۡسَلۡنَآ إِلَيۡهِمۡ رُسُلًا ۖ كُلَّمَا جَآءَهُمۡ رَسُولٌ بِمَا لَا تَهۡوَىٰٓ أَنفُسُهُمۡ فَرِيقًا كَذَّبُواْ وَفَرِيقًا يَقۡتُلُونَ

Translation

We took the covenant of the Children of Israel and sent them messengers, every time, there came to them a messenger with what they themselves desired not - some (of these) they called impostors, and some they (go so far as to) slay.<br/>

Tafsir

And We made a covenant with the Israelites, to believe in God and His messengers, and We sent messengers to them. Every time a messenger came to them, from among them, with what their souls did not desire, in the way of truth, they denied it; some, of them, they denied, and some, of them, they slay, such as Zachariah and John (the use of [the present tense] yaqtuloon, 'they slay', instead of [the perfect tense] qataloo is to narrate past events [as if in the present] and to conclude [in harmony with] the end rhyme of the verses).
