Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And He it is Who hath constrained the sea to be of service) to be subservient (that ye eat fresh meat) i.e. fish (from thence, and bring forth from thence) from the sea (ornaments) embellishments: pearls and other things (which ye wear. And thou seest the ships ploughing it) you see the ships coming and going in the sea by means of the same wind (that ye (mankind) may seek of His bounty) of His deeds; it is also said that this means: of His provision, (and that haply ye may give thanks) to His bounty.
