Quote:
{13:5} And if you are astonished, [O Muhammad] - then astonishing is their saying, "When we are dust, will we indeed be [brought] into a new creation?" Those are the ones who have disbelieved in their Lord, and those will have shackles upon their necks, and those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally.

I suggest,
{13:5} And if you find [that] amazing, then amazing is their saying, "When we are dust, will we indeed be [brought] into a new creation?" Those are the ones who have disbelieved in their Lord, and those - yokes are on their necks, and those are the companions of the Fire; they therein are forever staying.

Quote:
{13:6} They impatiently urge you to bring about evil before good, while there has already occurred before them similar punishments [to what they demand]. And indeed, your Lord is full of forgiveness for the people despite their wrongdoing, and indeed, your Lord is severe in penalty.

I suggest,
{13:6} They hurry you [to bring about] evil before good, while there has already occurred before them exemplary [punishments]. And verily, your Lord does have forgiveness for the people despite their wrongdoing, and indeed, your Lord is severe in punishment.
