Translation

Nor did they (usually) forbid one another the iniquities which they committed: evil indeed were the deeds which they did.

Tafsir

They did not prevent one another, that is, one would not forbid the other from committing again, any indecency that they committed; verily evil was what they used to do, [verily evil] was this deed of theirs.
