{16:72} And God has made for you from yourselves mates and has made for you from your mates sons and grandchildren and has provided for you from the good things. Then in falsehood do they believe and in the favor of God they disbelieve?

I suggest,
{16:72} And God has set up for you, from yourselves, mates and has set up for you from your mates children and grandchildren and has provided for you from the good things. Is it then in falsehood they believe and in the favor of God they disbelieve?

Quote:
{16:73} And they worship besides God that which does not possess for them [the power of] provision from the heavens and the earth at all, and [in fact], they are unable.

I suggest,
{16:73} And they worship besides God what does not control for them provision from the heavens and the earth at all, nor can.
