{11:91} They said, "O Shuayb, we do not understand much of what you say, and indeed, we consider you among us as weak. And if not for your family, we would have stoned you [to death]; and you are not to us one respected."

I suggest,
{11:91} They said, "O Shuayb, we do not understand much of what you say, and indeed, we do see you among us weak. And if not for your troupe, we would have stoned you; and you are not to us unbeatable."

Quote:
{11:92} He said, "O my people, is my family more respected for power by you than God? But you put Him behind your backs [in neglect]. Indeed, my Lord is encompassing of what you do.

I suggest,
{11:92} He said, "O my people, is my troupe more esteemed by you than God? And you put Him behind your backs [in neglect]. Verily, my Lord is encompassing of what you do."

Quote:
{11:93} And O my people, work according to your position; indeed, I am working. You are going to know to whom will come a punishment that will disgrace him and who is a liar. So watch; indeed, I am with you a watcher, [awaiting the outcome]."

I suggest,
{11:93} "And O my people, work according to your ability; indeed, I am working. Then you will know to whom will come a torment that will disgrace him and who is a liar. So look out; indeed, I am with you looking out."
