Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And when he would have fallen upon the man who was an enemy unto them both) i.e. the Copt, (he said) i.e. the Israelite said: (O Moses! Wouldst thou kill me) today (as thou didst kill a person) a Copt (yesterday. Thou wouldst be nothing but a tyrant) a murderer (in the land) of Egypt, (thou wouldst not be of the reformers) of the pious who enjoin good and forbid evil.
