Quote:
{18:47} And [warn of] the Day when We will remove the mountains and you will see the earth prominent, and We will gather them and not leave behind from them anyone.

I suggest,
{18:47} And [warn of] the Day We force the mountains to move, and you will see the earth salient, and We will gather them such that We do not leave behind of them anyone.

Quote:
{18:48} And they will be presented before your Lord in rows, [and He will say], "You have certainly come to Us just as We created you the first time. But you claimed that We would never make for you an appointment."

The word in the Arabic is singular صفا (a row), so I suggest,
{18:48} And they are presented to your Lord in a row; [He will say,] "You certainly came to Us like We created you the first time, but you claimed that We would not make for you an appointment."

Quote:
{18:49} And the record [of deeds] will be placed [open], and you will see the criminals fearful of that within it, and they will say, "Oh, woe to us! What is this book that leaves nothing small or great except that it has enumerated it?" And they will find what they did present [before them]. And your Lord does injustice to no one.

I suggest,
{18:49} And the book [of deeds] is put down, then you will see the criminals apprehensive about what is in it saying, "Oh, woe to Us! How come this book does not leave a minor or major [deed] but has included it?" And they will find what they did present. And your Lord does not wrong anyone.
