{11:84} And to Madyan [We sent] their brother Shuayb. He said, "O my people, worship God; you have no deity other than Him. And do not decrease from the measure and the scale. Indeed, I see you in prosperity, but indeed, I fear for you the punishment of an all-encompassing Day.

I suggest,
{11:84} And to [the people of the city of] Midian [We sent] their brother Shuayb (Jethro). He said, "O my people, worship God; you have no god other than Him. And do not decrease from the measure and the scale. Indeed, I see you in prosperity, but verily, I fear for you the torment of an all-encompassing Day.

Quote:
{11:86} What remains [lawful] from God is best for you, if you would be believers. But I am not a guardian over you."

I see no reason for the interjection"[lawful]", so I suggest,
{11:86} What is left [to you] from God is better for you, if you would be believers. But I am not over you a keeper."
