{16:13} And [He has subjected] whatever He multiplied for you on the earth of varying colors. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who remember.

I suggest,
{16:13} And whatever He sprang for you in the earth of varying colors. Verily, in that is a sign for a folk who remember.

Quote:
{16:14} And it is He who subjected the sea for you to eat from it tender meat and to extract from it ornaments which you wear. And you see the ships plowing through it, and [He subjected it] that you may seek of His bounty; and perhaps you will be grateful.

I suggest,
{16:14} And [it is] He [who] subjected the sea so that you may eat from it tender meat and extract from it ornaments to wear. And you see ships plowing through it that you may seek of His bounty and that you may thank.

Quote:
{16:15} And He has cast into the earth firmly set mountains, lest it shift with you, and [made] rivers and roads, that you may be guided,

I suggest,
{16:15} And He has cast into the earth anchors lest it should shift with you, and rivers and roads, that you may find [your] way.
