Translation

"Do ye indeed approach men, and cut off the highway?- and practise wickedness (even) in your councils?" But his people gave no answer but this: they said: "Bring us the Wrath of Allah if thou tellest the truth."

Tafsir

What! Do you come unto men, and cut off the way, the [travel] roads of passers-by, committing lewd acts with whoever passes your way, such that people ceased to pass by [where] you [live], and you discuss in your gatherings, in your conversations, indecency?', [you discuss] committing lewd acts with one another. But the only answer of his people was that they said, 'Bring us the chastisement of God, if you are truthful', in your deeming such [acts] vile and that chastisement will befall those who do such things.
