Translation

It may be, if he divorced you (all), that Allah will give him in exchange consorts better than you,- who submit (their wills), who believe, who are devout, who turn to Allah in repentance, who worship (in humility), who travel (for Faith) and fast,- previously married or virgins.

Tafsir

It may be that, if he divorces you, that is, [if] the Prophet divorces his wives, his Lord will give him in [your] stead (read yubaddilahu or yubdilahu) wives better than you (azwaajan khayran minkunna is the predicate of 'asaa, 'it may be', the sentence being the response to the conditional) - the replacement [of his wives by God] never took place because the condition [of his divorcing them] never arose - women submissive [to God], affirming Islam, believing, faithful, obedient, penitent, devout, given to fasting - or given to emigrating [in God's way] - previously married and virgins.
