وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا فِي قَرْيَةٍ مِنْ نَذِيرٍ إِلَّا قَالَ مُتْرَفُوهَا إِنَّا بِمَا أُرْسِلْتُمْ بِهِ كَافِرُونَ

Khattab :

Whenever We sent a warner to a society, its elite would say, “We truly reject what you have been sent with.”

Malik : Whenever We have sent a Warner to a town, its wealthy residents have said: "We surely disbelieve in what you are sent with".
Pickthall : And We sent not unto any township a warner, but its pampered ones declared: Lo! we are disbelievers in that which ye bring unto Us.

Yusuf Ali 3841 Whenever the Message of Allah comes, the vested interests range themselves against it. Worldly power has made them arrogant; worldly pleasures have deadened their sensibility to Truth. They reject the Message because it attacks their false position.
