وَإِذْ قِيلَ لَهُمُ ٱسْكُنُواْ هَـٰذِهِ ٱلْقَرْيَةَ وَكُلُواْ مِنْهَا حَيْثُ شِئْتُمْ وَقُولُواْ حِطَّةٌ وَٱدْخُلُواْ ٱلْبَابَ سُجَّداً نَّغْفِرْ لَكُمْ خَطِيۤئَاتِكُمْ سَنَزِيدُ ٱلْمُحْسِنِينَ
-Al-A‘râf ( الأعراف )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And, mention, when it was said to them, ‘Dwell in this city, the Holy House [of Jerusalem], and eat therein wherever you will, and say, ‘our concern is for [an], Exoneration,’ and enter the gate, that is, the gate of the city, prostrating, a prostration that is [actually] a bow. We shall forgive (read naghfir, or the passive tughfar) you your transgressions; We shall give more to those who are virtuous, through obedience, in terms of reward.
