{15:49} [O Muhammad], inform My servants that it is I who am the Forgiving, the Merciful.
{15:50} And that it is My punishment which is the painful punishment.

I suggest,
{15:49} Tell My worshipers that I, indeed I, am the Oft-Forgiving, the much Merciful.
{15:50} And that My torment is the [truly] painful torment.

Quote:
{15:51} And inform them about the guests of Abraham,
{15:52} When they entered upon him and said, "Peace." [Abraham] said, "Indeed, we are fearful of you."
{15:53} [The angels] said, "Fear not. Indeed, we give you good tidings of a learned boy."
{15:54} He said, "Have you given me good tidings although old age has come upon me? Then of what [wonder] do you inform?"
{15:55} They said, "We have given you good tidings in truth, so do not be of the despairing."
{15:56} He said, "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?"

I suggest,
{15:51} And tell them about the guests of Abraham,
{15:52} When they entered upon him and said, "Peace." [Abraham, startled,] said, "Verily, we are afraid of you."
{15:53} [The angels] said, "Do not fear. Indeed, we give you glad tidings of a learned boy."
{15:54} He said, "Did you give me glad tidings that old age has touched me? Then what glad tidings do you give me?"
{15:55} They said, "We have given you glad tidings in truth, so do not be of the despairing."
{15:56} He said, "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for the straying?"
