{11:81} The angels said, "O Lot, indeed we are messengers of your Lord; [therefore], they will never reach you. So set out with your family during a portion of the night and let not any among you look back - except your wife; indeed, she will be struck by that which strikes them. Indeed, their appointment is [for] the morning. Is not the morning near?"

I suggest,
{11:81} They (the angels) said, "O Lot, verily, we are the messengers of your Lord. They will not reach you. So, set out traveling with your family during a portion of the night and let not any among you look back - except your wife; indeed, she will be struck by what strikes them. Indeed, their appointment is the morning. Is not the morning near?"

Quote:
{11:83} Marked from your Lord. And God's punishment is not from the wrongdoers [very] far.

I suggest,
{11:83} [Each stone is] Marked (aimed at someone in particular) from your Lord, and it is not at all far from the wrongdoers.
