Salaam all,

Wazakariyya wayahya waAAeesa wailyasa kullun mina alssaliheena

The Aya says:
And Zacharias and John and Jesus and Elias, each amongst the righteous.

My personal note:
This continues listing some of the great descendants of Noah.

Translation of the transliterated words:
Wazakariyya: And Zacharaya
Wayahya: and John
waAAeesa: and Jesus
wailyasa: and Elias/ Elijah
kullun each
Note: KULLUN is derived from the root K-L-L and it means the parts put together. This is the concrete and it means all or every or each. It can also be extended conceptually to mean the parts surrounding an entity. KULLAN means every, or each.
Mina: of/ from
Alssaliheena: the righteous / of the good deeds
Note: ALSSALIHEEN is derived from the root Sad-L-Ha and it means becoming helpful or useful in a good direction. This means mainly: becoming one of benefit as in benefiting oneself and others. Included in this meaning is becoming fixed after having been broken. ALSSALIHEEN then here the people of righteousness/ good deeds and deeds of benefit.

Salaam all and have a great day.
