Quote:
{9:122} And it is not for the believers to go forth [to battle] all at once. For there should separate from every division of them a group [remaining] to obtain understanding in the religion and warn their people when they return to them that they might be cautious.

I suggest,
{9:22} And it is not for the believers that they stampede [to battle] wholly. For would it not [be better] if there should discharge from every troop of them a bevy to pursue comprehension of the religion and to warn their folk when they have returned to them that they might take precaution.

Quote:
{9:123} O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness. And know that God is with the righteous.

I suggest,
{9:123} O you who have believed, fight those next to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you toughness. And know that God is with the watchful [of Him].
