{20:70} So the magicians fell down in prostration. They said, "We have believed in the Lord of Aaron and Moses."

I suggest,
{20:70} And the magicians were dropped prostrating. They said, "We have believed in the Lord of Aaron and Moses."

Quote:
{20:71} [Pharaoh] said, "You believed him before I gave you permission. Indeed, he is your leader who has taught you magic. So I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will crucify you on the trunks of palm trees, and you will surely know which of us is more severe in [giving] punishment and more enduring."

I suggest,
{20:71} He (Pharaoh) said, "You believed him before I permit you to. Verily, he must be your elder who taught you magic. So, I will surely cut off your hands and your legs on opposite sides, and I will crucify you on the trunks of palm trees, and you will surely know which of us is fiercer in torment and more lasting."
