Quote:
{9:34} O you who have believed, indeed many of the scholars and the monks devour the wealth of people unjustly and avert [them] from the way of God. And those who hoard gold and silver and spend it not in the way of God - give them tidings of a painful punishment.

I suggest,
{9:34} O you who have believed, verily, many of the rabbis and the monks devour the wealth of people with falsehood and avert [them] from the way of God. And those who hoard gold and silver and do not spend it in the way of God - give them tidings of a painful torment.

Quote:
{9:35} The Day when it will be heated in the fire of Hell and seared therewith will be their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs, [it will be said], "This is what you hoarded for yourselves, so taste what you used to hoard."

Excellent translation, but I'd interject "[On]" at the beginning.
