Quote:
{17:105} And with the truth We have sent the Quran down, and with the truth it has descended. And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a bringer of good tidings and a warner.

I suggest,
{17:105} And with the truth We have sent it (the Quran) down, and with the truth it has descended. And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a herald of good tidings and a forewarner.

Quote:
{17:106} And [it is] a Quran which We have separated [by intervals] that you might recite it to the people over a prolonged period. And We have sent it down progressively.

I love Sarwar's translation of فرقناه. I suggest,
{17:106} And [it is] a Quran which We have segmented so that you would recite it to the people with a period in between [segments]. And We have been sending it down progressively.

Quote:
{17:108} And they say, "Exalted is our Lord! Indeed, the promise of our Lord has been fulfilled."

I suggest,
{17:108} And they say, "Sanctifed is our Lord! Indeed, the promise of our Lord surely is [always] fulfilled."

Quote:
{17:109} And they fall upon their faces weeping, and the Quran increases them in humble submission.

I suggest,
{17:109} And they drop to the chins weeping and it (the Quran) increases them in humility.
