{12:108} Say, "This is my way; I invite to God with insight, I and those who follow me. And exalted is God; and I am not of those who associate others with Him."

I suggest,
{12:108} Say, "This is my way; I invite to God with insight, I and those who follow me. And sanctified is God; and I am not of the associators (those who associate others with God in worship)".

Quote:
{12:109} And We sent not before you [as messengers] except men to whom We revealed from among the people of cities. So have they not traveled through the earth and observed how was the end of those before them? And the home of the Hereafter is best for those who fear God; then will you not reason?

I suggest,
{12:109} And We did not send before you [as messengers] but men to whom We revealed [Our message] from among the people of the towns. So have they not traveled through the earth so they may observe how was the end of those before them? And the home of the Hereafter is better for those who watched out [for God]; then will you not reason?

Minor modification: "(of others with God, in worship)

I suggest "so will you not reason?" for the last part.
