Translation

Remember ye implored the assistance of your Lord, and He answered you: "I will assist you with a thousand of the angels, ranks on ranks."

Tafsir

When you sought help from your Lord, asking Him to help you by granting you victory over them, and He answered you [saying]: 'I shall reinforce you, I shall assist you, with a thousand angels, rank upon rank', one rank following after the next: God promised them this [number] at first, but it then became three thousand, and then five thousand, as stated in [soorat] aal 'Imraan [Q. 3:124-125] (a variant reading [of alf, 'thousand'] has the plural aaluf, 'thousands', similar [in pattern] to aflus, 'coins').
