Translation

And worship others than Allah,- such as have no power of providing them, for sustenance, with anything in heavens or earth, and cannot possibly have such power?

Tafsir

And they worship besides God, that is, other than Him, what has no power to give them any [sort of] provision from the skies, such as water, and the earth, such as plants (shay'an, 'any[thing]', is a substitute for rizqan, 'provision') nor do they have the capacity, [nor] are they able to do anything - and these are the idols.
