Thou art our Protector: so forgive us and give us Thy mercy; for Thou art the best of those who forgive. |
[RK]:Moses then selected seventy men from among his people, to come to our appointed audience.

This must be the test that You have instituted for us. With it, You condemn whomever You will, and guide whomever You will. You are our Lord and Master, so forgive us, shower us with Your mercy; You are the best Forgiver.

[RK]:We have chosen them from among all the people, knowingly.
