The Monotheist Group 2:246 Did you not note the leaders of the Children of Israel after Moses, they said to their prophet: "Send us a king that we may fight in the cause of God;" he said: "Are you not concerned that if fighting is decreed for you, you will then not fight?" They said: "And why should we not fight in the cause of God when we have been expelled from our homes along with our children." So it was, that when fighting was decreed for them they turned away, except for a few of them! God is fully aware of the wicked.
Original Text 2:246 ألم تر إلى الملإ من بني إسرءيل من بعد موسى إذ قالوا لنبي لهم ابعث لنا ملكا نقتل في سبيل الله قال هل عسيتم إن كتب عليكم القتال ألا تقتلوا قالوا وما لنا ألا نقتل في سبيل الله وقد أخرجنا من ديرنا وأبنائنا فلما كتب عليهم القتال تولوا إلا قليلا منهم والله عليم بالظلمين
