Quote:
{11:97} To Pharaoh and his establishment, but they followed the command of Pharaoh, and the command of Pharaoh was not [at all] discerning.

I suggest,
{11:96} To Pharaoh and his entourage, [who] then [instead] followed the command of Pharaoh, and the command of Pharaoh is not at all prudent.

Quote:
{11:98} He will precede his people on the Day of Resurrection and lead them into the Fire; and wretched is the place to which they are led.

I suggest,
{11:98} He will precede his people on the Day of Resurrection and lead them into the Fire. How wretched a place to be led to!

Quote:
{11:99} And they were followed in this [world] with a curse and on the Day of Resurrection. And wretched is the gift which is given.

I suggest,
{11:99} And they were followed in this [world] with a curse and on the Day of Resurrection. How wretched a following to follow!
