Quote:
{17:70} And We have certainly honored the children of Adam and carried them on the land and sea and provided for them of the good things and preferred them over much of what We have created, with [definite] preference.

I'd make small changes,
{17:70} And We have certainly honored the children of Adam and carried them in the land and sea and provided for them of the good things and favored them over much of whom We have created, a [great] favor.

Quote:
{17:71} [Mention, O Muhammad], the Day We will call forth every people with their record [of deeds]. Then whoever is given his record in his right hand - those will read their records, and injustice will not be done to them, [even] as much as a thread [inside the date seed].

I suggest,
{17:71} The Day We call each people with their leader. Then whoever is given his book [of deeds] by his right hand, they will read their book and they are not wronged [not even] a filament.

Quote:
{17:72} And whoever is blind in this [life] will be blind in the Hereafter and more astray in way.

I suggest,
{17:72} And whoever has been in this [life] blind [to the truth] will be in the Hereafter blind and more lost in way.
