Malik : and when our scourge fell upon them, their only cry was: "We have indeed been wrongdoers."
Mustafa Khattab :

Their only cry—when overwhelmed by Our torment—was, “We have indeed been wrongdoers.”

Pickthall : No plea had they, when Our terror came unto them, save that they said: Lo! We were wrongdoers.
Yusuf Ali : When (thus) our punishment took them no cry did they utter but this "indeed we did wrong." 992

Yusuf Ali

Yusuf Ali 992 The religious story of man begins with a prelude. Think of the towns and nations ruined by their iniquity. Allah gave them many opportunities, and sent them warners and teachers. But they arrogantly went on in their evil ways, till some dreadful calamity came and wiped out their traces. In a warm climate the disturbance in the heat of the midday rest is even more than the disturbance at night. It was when the catastrophe came that the people realised their sins, but it was too late.
