Quote:
(9:83} If God should return you to a faction of them [after the expedition] and then they ask your permission to go out [to battle], say, "You will not go out with me, ever, and you will never fight with me an enemy. Indeed, you were satisfied with sitting [at home] the first time, so sit [now] with those who stay behind."

I suggest,
{9:83} If God should return you to a bevy of them [after the battle], then they asked your permission for going out [to battle], then say, "You will not go out with me, ever, and you will never fight with me an enemy. Verily, you contended with sitting [at home] the first time, so sit [now] with those staying behind."

Quote:
{9:85} And let not their wealth and their children impress you. God only intends to punish them through them in this world and that their souls should depart [at death] while they are disbelievers.

I suggest this minor change,
{9:85} And let not their wealth and their children impress you. God only intends to torment them by them in [this] the nearest [life] and that their souls depart [at death] while they are disbelievers.
