Translation

How many generations have We destroyed after Noah? and enough is thy Lord to note and see the sins of His servants.

Tafsir

How many - in other words, many - generations, communities, We have destroyed since Noah! And your Lord suffices as One Informed and Beholder of the sins of His servants, Knower of the hidden and manifest aspects of these [sins] (bi-rabbika, 'your Lord', is semantically connected to bi-dhunoob, 'of the sins').
