{9:97} The bedouins are stronger in disbelief and hypocrisy and more likely not to know the limits of what [laws] God has revealed to His Messenger. And God is Knowing and Wise.

I suggest,
{9:97} The desert Arabs are stronger in disbelief and hypocrisy and more likely not to know the limits of what [laws] God has sent down upon His Messenger. And God is much Knowledgeable, very Wise.

Quote:
{9:98} And among the bedouins are some who consider what they spend as a loss and await for you turns of misfortune. Upon them will be a misfortune of evil. And God is Hearing and Knowing.

I suggest,
{9:98} And among the desert Arabs are some who consider what they spend as a loss and await for you turns [of misfortune]. Upon them will be the turn of misfortune. And God is much Hearing, quite Knowledgeable.

Quote:
{9:99} But among the bedouins are some who believe in God and the Last Day and consider what they spend as means of nearness to God and of [obtaining] invocations of the Messenger. Unquestionably, it is a means of nearness for them. God will admit them to His mercy. Indeed, God is Forgiving and Merciful.

I suggest,
{9:99} But among the desert Arabs are some who believe in God and the Final Day and consider what they spend as means of nearness to God and of [obtaining] invocations from the Messenger. Unquestionably, it is a means of nearness for them. God will admit them to His mercy. Verily, God is much Forgiving, very Merciful.
