{11:12} Then would you possibly leave [out] some of what is revealed to you, or is your breast constrained by it because they say, "Why has there not been sent down to him a treasure or come with him an angel?" But you are only a warner. And God is Disposer of all things.

I suggest,
{11:12} Then are you possibly leaving out some of what is revealed to you, or your bosom is constraining by it because they say, "If only has been sent down to him a treasure or come with him an angel." But verily, you are [only] a warner. And God, of everything, is in charge.

Quote:
{11:13} Or do they say, "He invented it"? Say, "Then bring ten surahs like it that have been invented and call upon [for assistance] whomever you can besides God, if you should be truthful."

I suggest,
{11:13} Or do they say, "He invented it (the Quran)"? Say, "Then come up with ten chapters like it that are invented and call upon [for assistance] whomever you can besides God, if you should be truthful."

Quote:
{11:14} And if they do not respond to you - then know that the Quran was revealed with the knowledge of God and that there is no deity except Him. Then, would you [not] be Muslims?

I suggest,
{11:14} And if they do not respond to you - then know that it (the Quran) was revealed with the knowledge of God and that there is no deity except He. Are you then submitting (Muslims)?
