Quote:
{17:15} Whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] his soul. And whoever errs only errs against it. And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And never would We punish until We sent a messenger.

I suggest,
{17:15} Whoever found guidance only finds guidance for himself. And whoever strays only strays against it. And no bearer of a burden shall bear the burden of another. And never would We torment until We sent a messenger.

Quote:
{17:16} And when We intend to destroy a city, We command its affluent but they defiantly disobey therein; so the word comes into effect upon it, and We destroy it with [complete] destruction.

I suggest,
{17:16} And when We intend to destroy a town, We would command its jaded so they deviate therein; thus becomes true upon them the word, and We destroy it a [complete] destruction.

Quote:
{17:17} And how many have We destroyed from the generations after Noah. And sufficient is your Lord, concerning the sins of His servants, as Acquainted and Seeing.

I suggest,
{17:17} And how many have We destroyed from the generations after Noah. And sufficed your Lord, of the sins of His worshipers, an All-Aware, All-Seer.
