Quote:
{10:3} Indeed, your Lord is God, who created the heavens and the earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne, arranging the matter [of His creation]. There is no intercessor except after His permission. That is God, your Lord, so worship Him. Then will you not remember?

I suggest,
{10:3} Verily, your Lord is God, who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then established Himself over the Throne. He arranges the matter [of His creation]. There is no mediator [with Him] except after His permission. That is God, your Lord, so worship Him. Do you not then remember?

Quote:
{10:4} To Him is your return all together. [It is] the promise of God [which is] truth. Indeed, He begins the [process of] creation and then repeats it that He may reward those who have believed and done righteous deeds, in justice. But those who disbelieved will have a drink of scalding water and a painful punishment for what they used to deny.

I suggest,
{10:4} To Him is your return all together, the promise of God in truth. Indeed, He begins creation and then repeats it that He may reward those who have believed and done righteous deeds, with equity. But those who have disbelieved - for them is a drink from a scalding [water] and a painful torment because they used to deny.
