{12:93} "Take this, my shirt, and cast it over the face of my father; he will become seeing. And bring me your family, all together."

I suggest,
{12:93} "Take this, my shirt, and cast it over the face of my father; he will be able to see [again]. And bring me your family, all together."

Quote:
{12:94} And when the caravan departed [from Egypt], their father said, "Indeed, I find the smell of Joseph [and would say that he was alive] if you did not think me weakened in mind."

I suggest,
{12:94} And when the camels (caravan) departed [from Egypt], their father said, "Verily, I find the scent of Joseph unless you disprove me."

I always tear up when I recite or hear this verse.

I suggest
{12:93} "Take this, my shirt, and cast it over the face of my father; he will become sighted [again]. And bring me your family, all together."

I suggest "belie" instead of "disprove."

I tear up on the following verse (12:95). The height of rudeness and cruelty from children towards their father.

i suggest
{12:95} They said, "By God, you are verily in your old delusion."

Quote:
{12:96} And once the bearer of good tidings came, he cast it over his face, and he returned [once again] seeing. He said, "Did I not tell you that I know from God that which you do not know?"

I suggest
{12:96} So when the bearer of good tidings arrived, he cast it over his face, and he returned [once again] sighted. He said, "Did I not tell you that I know from God what you do not know?"
