وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا دَاوُودَ مِنَّا فَضْلاً يٰجِبَالُ أَوِّبِي مَعَهُ وَٱلطَّيْرَ وَأَلَنَّا لَهُ ٱلْحَدِيدَ
-Saba’ ( سبأ )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And verily We bestowed on David a [great] favour from Us — prophethood and scripture — and We said: ‘O mountains, repeat with him [in praise], by making glorifications, and the birds [too]!’ (read wa’l-tayra in the accusative as a supplement to the [syntactical] locus of jibāl, ‘mountains’, in other words, and We also called on them to glorify [God] with him). And We made iron malleable for him, so that it was as dough in his hands.
