Quote:
{20:123} [God] said, "Descend from Paradise - all, [your descendants] being enemies to one another. And if there should come to you guidance from Me - then whoever follows My guidance will neither go astray [in the world] nor suffer [in the Hereafter].

I suggest,
{20:123} [God] said, "Descend from it (heaven) - all; to each other you are enemies (Satan and man). And if there should come to you guidance from Me - then whoever followed My guidance does not go astray nor will be miserable.

Quote:
{20:127} And thus do We recompense he who transgressed and did not believe in the signs of his Lord. And the punishment of the Hereafter is more severe and more enduring.

I suggest,
{20:127} And thus do We recompense him who wasted and did not believe in the signs of his Lord. And the torment of the Hereafter is tougher and more enduring.
