Quote:
{9:1} [This is a declaration of] disassociation, from God and His Messenger, to those with whom you had made a treaty among the polytheists.

I suggest,
{9:1} Disavowal by God and His Messenger [is hereby announced] unto those whom you have covenanted of the polytheists.

Quote:
{9:2} So travel freely, [O disbelievers], throughout the land [during] four months but know that you cannot cause failure to God and that God will disgrace the disbelievers.

I suggest,
{9:2} So, go about the land for four months but know that you are not frustrating God and that God will disgrace the disbelievers.

Quote:
{9:3} And [it is] an announcement from God and His Messenger to the people on the day of the greater pilgrimage that God is disassociated from the disbelievers, and [so is] His Messenger. So if you repent, that is best for you; but if you turn away - then know that you will not cause failure to God. And give tidings to those who disbelieve of a painful punishment.

I suggest,
{9:3} And [it is] an announcement from God and His Messenger to the people on the greatest day of pilgrimage that God is disassociated from the polytheists, and [so is] His Messenger. So if you repent, that is best for you; but if you turn away - then know that you are not frustrating God. And give tidings to those who disbelieve of a painful torment.

Quote:
{9:4} Excepted are those with whom you made a treaty among the polytheists and then they have not been deficient toward you in anything or supported anyone against you; so complete for them their treaty until their term [has ended]. Indeed, God loves the righteous [who fear Him].

I suggest,
{9:4} Except those you have covenanted of the polytheists and they have not shorted you of anything nor supported anyone against you; so complete for them their treaty until the end of their term. Indeed, God loves the watchful [of Him].
