{9:73} O Prophet, fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them. And their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the destination.

I suggest,
{9:73} O Prophet, fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be tough with them. And their refuge is Hell; how wretched a destination!

Quote:
{9:74} They swear by God that they did not say [anything against the Prophet] while they had said the word of disbelief and disbelieved after their [pretense of] Islam and planned that which they were not to attain. And they were not resentful except [for the fact] that God and His Messenger had enriched them of His bounty. So if they repent, it is better for them; but if they turn away, God will punish them with a painful punishment in this world and the Hereafter. And there will not be for them on earth any protector or helper.

I suggest,
{9:74} They swear by God that they did not say [anything against the Prophet] while they had said the word of disbelief and disbelieved after their [declaration of] Islam and attempted [to get] what they did not attain. And they did not resent but [the fact] that God and His Messenger had enriched them from His bounty. So if they repent, it is better for them; but if they turn away, God will torment them with a painful torment in this world and the Hereafter. And there is not for them in the earth any ally or helper.
