{20:99} Thus, [O Muhammad], We relate to you from the news of what has preceded. And We have certainly given you from Us the Quran.

I suggest,
{20:99} Thus, We relate to you from the news of what has preceded. And We have certainly given you from Our Own a reminder.

Quote:
{20:102} The Day the Horn will be blown. And We will gather the criminals, that Day, blue-eyed.

I suggest,
{20:102} A Day when the Horn is blown. And We gather the criminals that Day blue-faced.

Quote:
{20:103} They will murmur among themselves, "You remained not but ten [days in the world]."

I suggest,
{20:103} They murmur among themselves, "You only stayed but ten [days]."

Quote:
{20:104} We are most knowing of what they say when the best of them in manner will say, "You remained not but one day."

I suggest,
{20:104} We know better what they say, when the most exemplary in behavior among them says, "You only stayed but a day."
