{9:19} Have you made the providing of water for the pilgrim and the maintenance of al-Masjid al-Haram equal to [the deeds of] one who believes in God and the Last Day and strives in the cause of God? They are not equal in the sight of God. And God does not guide the wrongdoing people.

I suggest,
{9:19} Have you made the providing of water for the pilgrim and the maintenance of the Sacrosanct Mosque equal to [the deeds of] one who believes in God and the Final Day and strives in the cause of God? They are not equal in the sight of God. And God does not guide the wrongdoing folk.

Quote:
{9:20} The ones who have believed, emigrated and striven in the cause of God with their wealth and their lives are greater in rank in the sight of God. And it is those who are the attainers [of success].

I suggest,
{9:20} The ones who have believed, emigrated and striven in the cause of God with their wealth and their persons are greater in rank in the sight of God. And it is those who are the winners.
