{16:96} Whatever you have will end, but what God has is lasting. And We will surely give those who were patient their reward according to the best of what they used to do.

I suggest,
{16:96} What you have depletes, and what God has is remaining. And We will surely recompense those who have endured with their reward according to the loveliest of what they used to do.

Quote:
{16:97} Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer - We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the best of what they used to do.

I suggest,
{16:97} Whoever does a righteous [deed], whether male or female, while a believer - We will surely have them live a good life, and We will surely recompense them with their reward according to the best of what they used to do.
