Translation

And remember, Moses said to his people: "O my people! why do ye vex and insult me, though ye know that I am the messenger of Allah (sent) to you?" Then when they went wrong, Allah let their hearts go wrong. For Allah guides not those who are rebellious transgressors.

Tafsir

And, mention, when Moses said to his people, 'O my people, why do you harm me - [for] they had said that he had a hernia in his testicles, which he did not have, and they denied him - when certainly (qad is for confirmation) you know that I am the messenger of God to you?' (annee rasoolu'Llaahi ilaykum: this sentence is a circumstantial qualifier) and [when you know that] messengers ought to be respected. So when they deviated, when they swerved away from the truth by harming him, God caused their hearts to deviate: He turned them away from guidance, in accordance to what He had preordained since pre-eternity, and God does not guide the immoral folk, those who, in His knowledge, are disbelievers.
