Translation

Then began Satan to whisper suggestions to them, bringing openly before their minds all their shame that was hidden from them (before): he said: "Your Lord only forbade you this tree, lest ye should become angels or such beings as live for ever."

Tafsir

Then Satan, Iblees, whispered to them that he might manifest, reveal, to them that which was hidden (wooriya: based on [the verbal form] foo'ila and [derives] from [the infinitive] al-muwaaraa) to them of their shameful parts. And he said, 'Your Lord prohibited you from this tree only, in aversion, lest you become angels (malakayn may also be read malikayn) or become immortals', in other words, that is the necessary consequence of eating from it, as [is stated] in another verse: Shall I guide you to the Tree of Immortality and a kingdom that does not waste away? [Q. 20:120].
