Quote:
{16:125} Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of who is [rightly] guided.

I suggest,
{16:125} Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good preaching, and argue with them in [a way] that is nicest. Verily, your Lord is most knowing of whom has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of whom are the guided.

Quote:
{16:126} And if you punish [an enemy, O believers], punish with an equivalent of that with which you were harmed. But if you are patient - it is better for those who are patient.

I suggest,
{16:126} And if you counter, counter with an equivalent of what you were countered with. But surely should you have endured, it is certainly better for the enduring.

Quote:
{16:128} Indeed, God is with those who fear Him and those who are doers of good.

I suggest,
{16:128} Verily, God is with those who have watched out [for Him] and those who are benefactors.
