{18:25} And they remained in their cave for three hundred years and exceeded by nine.

I suggest,
{18:25} And they stayed in their cave three hundred of years and they were increased [by] nine.

Quote:
{18:26} Say, "God is most knowing of how long they remained. He has [knowledge of] the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and the earth. How Seeing is He and how Hearing! They have not besides Him any protector, and He shares not His legislation with anyone."

I suggest,
{18:26} Say, "God is most knowing of how long they stayed. He has [knowledge of] the unrevealed [aspects] of the heavens and the earth. How Seeing is He and how Hearing! They do not have besides Him any ally, and He does not share in His judgment with anyone."
