Quote:
{14:6} And [recall, O Children of Israel], when Moses said to His people, "Remember the favor of God upon you when He saved you from the people of Pharaoh, who were afflicting you with the worst torment and were slaughtering your [newborn] sons and keeping your females alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord.

I suggest,
{14:6} And [that was] when Moses said to His people, "Remember the favor of God upon you when He saved you from the house of Pharaoh, [who were] afflicting you with evil torment and slaughtering your sons and keeping your women alive. And in that, for you, was a trial from your Lord, a great [trial].

Quote:
{14:7} And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, 'If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.' "

I suggest,
{14:7} And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, 'If you thank, I will surely give you more; but if you deny, indeed, My torment is certainly severe.' "
