Sahih International:

Be patient over what they say and remember Our servant, David, the possessor of strength; indeed, he was one who repeatedly turned back [to Allah].

1 Mufti Taqi Usmani

Bear patiently with what they say, and remember Our servant Dawūd, the man of might. Surely he was ever-turning to Allah.
