Translation

And when there comes to them a Book from Allah, confirming what is with them,- although from of old they had prayed for victory against those without Faith,- when there comes to them that which they (should) have recognised, they refuse to believe in it but the curse of Allah is on those without Faith.

Tafsir

When there came to them a Book from God, confirming what was with them, in the Torah, that is the Qur'aan - and they formerly, before it came, prayed for victory, for assistance, over the disbelievers, saying: 'God, give us assistance against them through the Prophet that shall be sent at the end of time'; but when there came to them what they recognised, as the truth, that is, the mission of the Prophet, they disbelieved in it, out of envy and for fear of losing leadership (the response to the first lammaa particle is indicated by the response to the second one); and the curse of God is on the disbelievers.
