لُعِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ مِن بَنِيۤ إِسْرَائِيلَ عَلَىٰ لِسَانِ دَاوُودَ وَعِيسَى ٱبْنِ مَرْيَمَ ذٰلِكَ بِمَا عَصَوْا وَّكَانُواْ يَعْتَدُونَ
٧٨
-Al-Mâ’idah ( المائدة )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Cursed were the disbelievers of the Children of Israel by the tongue of David, when he invoked God against them and they were transformed into apes — these were the people of Eilat — and by Jesus, son of Mary, when he invoked God against them and they were transformed into pigs — they were the ones [who ate] at the Table [cf. Q. 5:115, below] — that, cursing, was because of their disobedience and their transgression.
