Quote:
{16:84} And [mention] the Day when We will resurrect from every nation a witness. Then it will not be permitted to the disbelievers [to apologize or make excuses], nor will they be asked to appease [God].

I suggest,
{16:84} And [mention] the Day when We send off from every community a witness. Then they are not permitted - those who have disbelieved - nor are they asked to make amends.

Quote:
{16:85} And when those who wronged see the punishment, it will not be lightened for them, nor will they be reprieved.

I suggest,
{16:85} And when those who have wronged have seen the torment, it is not lightened for them, nor are they reprieved.

Quote:
{16:86} And when those who associated others with God see their "partners," they will say, "Our Lord, these are our partners [to You] whom we used to invoke besides You." But they will throw at them the statement, "Indeed, you are liars."

I suggest,
{16:86} And when those who have associated [others with God in worship] have seen their "partners," they would say, "Our Lord, these are our partners whom we used to invoke besides You." But then they would cast over to them the uttering "Verily, you surely are liars."

Quote:
{16:87} And they will impart to God that Day [their] submission, and lost from them is what they used to invent.

I suggest,
{16:87} And they would proffer to God that Day peace, and would stray away from them what they used to concoct.
