{9:23} O you who have believed, do not take your fathers or your brothers as allies if they have preferred disbelief over belief. And whoever does so among you - then it is those who are the wrongdoers.

I suggest,
{9:23} O you who have believed, do not take your fathers and your brothers as allies if they have preferred disbelief over faith. And whoever allies with them among you - then it is those who are the wrongdoers.

Quote:
{9:24} Say, [O Muhammad], "If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your relatives, wealth which you have obtained, commerce wherein you fear decline, and dwellings with which you are pleased are more beloved to you than God and His Messenger and jihad in His cause, then wait until God executes His command. And God does not guide the defiantly disobedient people."

I suggest,
{9:24} Say, [O Muhammad], "If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your spouses, your kin, wealth which you have obtained, a trade you fear would decline, and dwellings you are pleased with are more beloved to you than God and His Messenger and strife in His cause, then be on the alert until God brings His command. And God does not guide the deviant folk."
