وَآتَيْنَآ مُوسَى ٱلْكِتَابَ وَجَعَلْنَاهُ هُدًى لِّبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَلاَّ تَتَّخِذُواْ مِن دُونِي وَكِيلاً
-Al-Isrâ’ ( الإسراء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

God, exalted be He, says: And We gave Moses the Scripture, the Torah, and made it a guidance for the Children of Israel [saying] that they should not choose beside Me any guardian, to whom they delegate their affairs (a variant reading [for yattakhidhū, ‘they should [not] choose’] is tattakhidhū, ‘you should [not] choose’, thus turning away [from the third person address], in which case [the particle] an, ‘that’, is extra and the ‘saying’ is implicit).
