Sahih International:

[Moses] said, "My Lord, indeed I do not possess [i.e., control] except myself and my brother, so part us from the defiantly disobedient people."

1 Mufti Taqi Usmani

He said, “O my Lord, I have no control except over myself and my brother. So, make a distinction between us and the sinning people.”
