{10:7} Indeed, those who do not expect the meeting with Us and are satisfied with the life of this world and feel secure therein and who are heedless of Our signs

I suggest,
{10:7} Verily, those who do not hope for meeting Us, are contented with [this] the nearest life, feel secure therein, and who about Our signs are heedless -

Quote:
{10:8} For those their refuge will be the Fire because of what they used to earn.

"Refuge" is valid, but the semantic here is one of goal or final destiny, so, I suggest,
{10:8} Those - their abode is the Fire because of what they used to earn.
