Quote:
{9:58} And among them are some who criticize you concerning the [distribution of] charities. If they are given from them, they approve; but if they are not given from them, at once they become angry.

I suggest,
{9:58} And among them are some who slander you concerning the [distribution of] charities. If they are given from them, they approve; but if they are not given from them, all of a sudden they rant.

Quote:
{9:59} If only they had been satisfied with what God and His Messenger gave them and said, "Sufficient for us is God; God will give us of His bounty, and [so will] His Messenger; indeed, we are desirous toward God," [it would have been better for them].

I suggest,
{9:59} And if [only] they had accepted what God and His Messenger gave them and said, "Sufficient for us is God; God will give us of His bounty, and [so will] His Messenger; indeed, we are to God hoping."

Quote:
{9:60} Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakah] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of God and for the [stranded] traveler - an obligation [imposed] by God. And God is Knowing and Wise.

I suggest,
{9:60} Verily, charities are only for the needy, the poor, their [collection and distribution] staff, those whose hearts are being reconciled (new and prospective Muslims), for [freeing] necks (slaves), debtors, for the cause of God and for the stranded - a mandate from God. And God is much knowledgeable, very Wise.
