Quote:
{9:38} O you who have believed, what is [the matter] with you that, when you are told to go forth in the cause of God, you adhere heavily to the earth? Are you satisfied with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But what is the enjoyment of worldly life compared to the Hereafter except a [very] little.

Excellent translation!

Quote:
{9:39} If you do not go forth, He will punish you with a painful punishment and will replace you with another people, and you will not harm Him at all. And God is over all things competent.

I suggest,
{9:39} If you do not go forth, He will torment you with a painful torment and replace you with another folk, and you will not harm Him at all. And God, over everything, is powerful.
