Quote:
{10:49} Say, "I possess not for myself any harm or benefit except what God should will. For every nation is a [specified] term. When their time has come, then they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it]."

I suggest,
{10:49} Say, "I do not possess [any power of] harm or benefit for myself, except what God should will. For every community is a [specified] term. When their time has come, then they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it]."

Quote:
{10:50} Say, "Have you considered: if His punishment should come to you by night or by day for which [aspect] of it would the criminals be impatient?"

I suggest,
{10:50} Say, "Do you see if His torment comes to you at night or by day, what [part] of it would the criminals elicit?

Quote:
{10:51} Then is it that when it has [actually] occurred you will believe in it? Now? And you were [once] for it impatient

I suggest,
{10:51} Is it then when it has befallen will you believe in it? Now? And you have been eliciting it?
