[61.2] O you who believe! why

[61.5] And when Musa said to his people: O my people! why do you give me

son of Marium said to (his) disciples: Who are my helpers in the cause of Allah?

children of Israel believed and another party disbelieved; then We aided those
who believed against their enemy, and they became uppermost.
