Quote:
{9:64} They hypocrites are apprehensive lest a surah be revealed about them, informing them of what is in their hearts. Say, "Mock [as you wish]; indeed, God will expose that which you fear."

I suggest,
{9:64} The hypocrites dread that a chapter [of the Quran] be sent down over them, which would inform them of what is in their hearts. Say, "Scoff; verily God is disclosing what you dread [to be exposed]."

Quote:
{9:65} And if you ask them, they will surely say, "We were only conversing and playing." Say, "Is it God and His verses and His Messenger that you were mocking?"

I suggest,
{9:65} And if you ask them, they will surely say, "We were only indulging and playing." Say, "Is it at God, His verses and His messenger you have been scoffing?"

Quote:
{9:66} Make no excuse; you have disbelieved after your belief. If We pardon one faction of you - We will punish another faction because they were criminals.

I suggest,
{9:66} Make no excuse; you have already disbelieved after your belief. If We pardon one bevy of you - We torment a bevy because they were criminals.
