Quote:
{20:111} And [all] faces will be humbled before the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence. And he will have failed who carries injustice.

I suggest,
{20:111} And the faces will have succumbed to the Living One, the Supreme Maintainer. And he will have failed who has carried injustice.

Quote:
{20:112} But he who does of righteous deeds while he is a believer - he will neither fear injustice nor deprivation.

I'd add an interjection to help the leading sentence, i.e.,
{20:112} But he who does [some] of the righteous [deeds] while he is a believer - then he does not fear injustice nor deprivation.

Quote:
{20:113} And thus We have sent it down as an Arabic Quran and have diversified therein the warnings that perhaps they will avoid [sin] or it would cause them remembrance.

I suggest,
{20:113} And thus We have sent it down as an Arabic Quran and have diversified therein of [all sorts of] threatening that perhaps they will watch out [for God] or it would initiate with them a remembrance.

Quote:
{20:114} So high [above all] is God, the Sovereign, the Truth. And, [O Muhammad], do not hasten with [recitation of] the Quran before its revelation is completed to you, and say, "My Lord, increase me in knowledge."

I suggest,
{20:114} So, exalted is God, the King, the Truth. And do not hurry the Quran [, O Muhammad,] before its revelation is commissioned to you, and say, "Lord, increase me in knowledge."
