God says; Know they not (the interrogative is affirmative, the inserted ww [of a-wa-l] is to indicate the supplement) that God knows what they keep secret and what they proclaim?, that is, what they hide and what they reveal in this matter and all other matters, so that they may desist from these things.

24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

Know they (Jews) not that Allah knows what they conceal and what they reveal.

Abu Al-Aliyah said about Allah's statement,

"Meaning their secret denial and rejection of Muhammad, although they find his coming recorded in their Book."

This is also the Tafsir of Qatadah.

Al-Hasan commented on,
أَنَّ اللّهَ يَعْلَمُ مَا يُسِرُّونَ
(That Allah knows what they conceal),

"What they concealed refers to when they were alone with each other away from the Companions of Muhammad. Then they would forbid each other from conveying the news that Allah revealed to them in their Book to the Companions of Muhammad, fearing that the Companions would use this news (about the truth of Muhammad) against them before their Lord."

وَمَا يُعْلِنُونَ
(And what they reveal) meaning,

when they said to the Companions of Muhammad,
امَنَّا
(We believe), as Abu Al-Aliyah, Ar-Rabi and Qatadah stated
