Translation

Or have they the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all between? If so, let them mount up with the ropes and means (to reach that end)!

Tafsir

Or do they possess the kingdom of the skies and the earth and whatever is between them? If this is what they claim: Then let them ascend by the means, [of ascension] that lead to the sky and bring [down] some revelation (wahy) and then assign it exclusively to whomever they wish (am in both verses represents the [rhetorical] hamza of denial).
