* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَرَفَعْنَا فَوْقَهُمُ ٱلطُّورَ بِمِيثَاقِهِمْ وَقُلْنَا لَهُمُ ٱدْخُلُواْ ٱلْبَابَ سُجَّداً وَقُلْنَا لَهُمْ لاَ تَعْدُواْ فِي ٱلسَّبْتِ وَأَخَذْنَا مِنْهُمْ مِّيثَاقاً غَلِيظاً }

And We raised above them the Mount by the covenant with them that is on account of the covenant made with them that they might fear and so they accepted it; and We said to them while it cast a shadow hovering above them ‘Enter the gate the gate of the town bowing’; and We said to them ‘Transgress not a variant reading of lā ta‘dū is lā ta‘addū where the original tā’ of lā tata‘addū is assimilated with the dāl in other words it is similar in meaning to lā ta‘tadū ‘do not act unjustly in’ the Sabbath’ by fishing during it and We took from them a firm covenant over this but they broke it.
