This is a denunciation and a threat, because they used to say to the Messenger, by way of denial, thinking it unlikely ever to happen;

ايْتِنَا بِعَذَابِ اللَّهِ

Bring Allah's torment upon us. (29;29)

This is as Allah said;

وَيَسْتَعْجِلُونَكَ بِالْعَذَابِ


And they ask you to hasten on the torment... (29;53-55)

Then Allah says;

أَفَرَأَيْتَ إِن مَّتَّعْنَاهُمْ سِنِينَ
