{12:103} And most of the people, although you strive [for it], are not believers.

I suggest,
{12:103} And most people, even if you try [hard to guide them], will not be believers.

I would use "even if you are keen [on guiding them]"

{12:102} That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal, [O Muhammad], to you. And you were not with them when they put together their plan while they conspired.

I suggest
{12:102} That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you [O Muhammad]. And you were not with them when they closed ranks as they plotted.

Quote:
{12:104} And you do not ask of them for it any payment. It is not except a reminder to the worlds.

I suggest
{12:104} And you do not ask of them for it (the message) any wages. It is but a reminder to the worlds.
