    It is باعِد not باعَدَ i.e. in the imperative/vocative case not in the past tense

    Here is the full verse:
    فَقَالُوا رَ‌بَّنَا بَاعِدْ بَيْنَ أَسْفَارِ‌نَا وَظَلَمُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ فَجَعَلْنَاهُمْ أَحَادِيثَ وَمَزَّقْنَاهُمْ كُلَّ مُمَزَّقٍ ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّكُلِّ صَبَّارٍ‌ شَكُورٍ‌ (34/19
    But [insolently] they said, "Our Lord, lengthen the distance between our journeys,"......

    To read an interpretation of it, see here.
