* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ قَالَ خُذْهَا وَلاَ تَخَفْ سَنُعِيدُهَا سِيرَتَهَا ٱلأُولَىٰ }

He said ‘Take hold of it and do not fear it. We will restore it to its former state sīratahā in the accusative because the genitive-operating preposition has been removed. And so he placed his hand in its mouth and it became a staff once again; and it became clear that the place into which he put his hand was the place where it the staff is held between its two prongs. Moses was shown this miracle lest he be terrified when it turns into a snake in the presence of Pharaoh.
