And [recall] when you slew a man and disputed over it, but Allah was to bring out that which you were concealing.
“Remember ye slew a man and fell into a dispute among yourselves as to the crime: But Allah was to bring forth what ye did hide.
You should also recall to mind another incident: You slew a man and began to dispute about the murder and accuse one another of it, but Allah had decreed that what you were trying to hide should be disclosed.
And (remember) when you killed a man and fell into dispute among yourselves as to the crime. But Allah brought forth that which you were hiding.
And (remember) when ye slew a man and disagreed concerning it and Allah brought forth that which ye were hiding.
And (remember) as you killed a self, (and) so you parried about it, and Allah is to bring out whatever you were keeping back.
Then, when you [Israelites] killed someone and started to blame one another- although God was to bring what you had concealed to light-
جب تم نے ایک شخص کو قتل کر ڈاﻻ، پھر اس میں اختلاف کرنے لگے اور تمہاری پوشیدگی کو اللہ تعالیٰ ﻇاہر کرنے واﻻ تھا
