Quote:
{16:93} And if God had willed, He could have made you [of] one religion, but He causes to stray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And you will surely be questioned about what you used to do.

I suggest,
{16:93} And if God had willed, He would have made you one community, but He lets stray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And you will surely be questioned about what you have been doing.

Quote:
{16:94} And do not take your oaths as [means of] deceit between you, lest a foot slip after it was [once] firm, and you would taste evil [in this world] for what [people] you diverted from the way of God, and you would have [in the Hereafter] a great punishment.

I suggest,
{16:94} And do not take your oaths as deception amongst you, lest a foot should slip after its firmness, and you would taste evil because you shunned [people] from the way of God, and you would have a tremendous torment.

Quote:
{16:95} And do not exchange the covenant of God for a small price. Indeed, what is with God is best for you, if only you could know.

I suggest,
{16:95} And do not purchase with the pledge to God a small price. Verily, what is with God is best for you, if you would know.
