{9:86} And when a surah was revealed [enjoining them] to believe in God and to fight with His Messenger, those of wealth among them asked your permission [to stay back] and said, "Leave us to be with them who sit [at home]."

I suggest,
{9:86} And when a chapter [of the Quran] was revealed [enjoining them] to believe in God and to strive with His Messenger, those of wealth among them asked your permission [, O Muhammad, to stay back] and said, "Leave us to be with them who sit [at home]."

Quote:
{9:87} They were satisfied to be with those who stay behind, and their hearts were sealed over, so they do not understand.

الخوالف does not just mean "those who stay behind," it means "the women who stay behind!" So, I suggest,
{9:87} They were satisfied to be with the women who stay behind, and their hearts were sealed over, so they do not understand.
