Translation

And We ordained laws for him in the tablets in all matters, both commanding and explaining all things, (and said): "Take and hold these with firmness, and enjoin thy people to hold fast by the best in the precepts: soon shall I show you the homes of the wicked,- (How they lie desolate)."

Tafsir

And We inscribed for him in the Tablets, that is, the Tablets of the Torah - these were made from the Lotetree of the Paradise, or of chrysolite or emerald, and they were either seven or ten - about all things, one needs in religion, as an admonition and a detailing, an explanation, of all things (li-kulli shay'in substitutes for the previous genitive construction [min kulli shay', 'about all things']). 'Take it then (there is an implicit qulnaa, 'We said', before this [fa-kudhhaa, 'take it then']) firmly, seriously and earnestly, and enjoin your people to adhere to the fairest [precepts] in it. I shall show you the abode of the wicked, [of] Pharaoh and his followers, and that is Egypt, that you may take an example from them.
