{14:10} Their messengers said, "Can there be doubt about God, Creator of the heavens and earth? He invites you that He may forgive you of your sins, and He delays your death for a specified term." They said, "You are not but men like us who wish to avert us from what our fathers were worshipping. So bring us a clear authority."

I suggest,
{14:10} Their messengers said, "Is there in God a doubt, Originator of the heavens and the earth? He invites you so that He may forgive you of your sins, and He delays you (delays your death) for a specified term." They said, "You are but humans like us who wish to avert us from what our fathers were worshiping. So bring us a clear authority."

Quote:
{14:11} Their messengers said to them, "We are only men like you, but God confers favor upon whom He wills of His servants. It has never been for us to bring you evidence except by permission of God. And upon God let the believers rely.
