Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And in the Earth are neighbouring) adjacent (tracts) places: a bad, swampy land close to a good, fertile land, (vineyards and ploughed lands, and date-palms, like) which have the same roots, whether they are ten or less (and unlike) have different roots, (which are watered with one water) they are watered with the rain or water from rivers. (And We have made some of them to excel others in fruit) in bearing and taste. (Lo! Herein) in their difference and different colours (verily are portents) signs (for people who have sense) for people who believe that they are from Allah.
