Translation

Lest ye should say: "The Book was sent down to two Peoples before us, and for our part, we remained unacquainted with all that they learned by assiduous study:"

Tafsir

We have revealed it, lest you should say, 'The Scripture was revealed only upon two parties - the Jews and the Christians - before us and we (in has been softened, its noun omitted, in other words [read as] innaa) indeed have been unacquainted with their study', their reading [of the scripture], not knowing any of it, since it is not in our own language.
