Quote:
{9:25} God has already given you victory in many regions and [even] on the day of Hunayn, when your great number pleased you, but it did not avail you at all, and the earth was confining for you with its vastness; then you turned back, fleeing.

I suggest,
{9:25} God certainly helped you in many situations and [even] on the day of Hunayn (a battle site), when your multitude pleased you, but it did not avail you at all, and the land became confined for you despite its vastness; then you turned around withdrawing.

Quote:
{9:26} Then God sent down His tranquility upon His Messenger and upon the believers and sent down soldiers angels whom you did not see and punished those who disbelieved. And that is the recompense of the disbelievers.

I suggest,
{9:26} Then God sent down His tranquility upon His Messenger and upon the believers and sent down soldiers (angels) whom you did not see and tormented those who have disbelieved. And that is the recompense of the disbelievers.
