Quote:
{21:1} [The time of] their account has approached for the people, while they are in heedlessness turning away.

I suggest,
{21:1} Nigh to people has come their reckoning, while they are in heedlessness turning aside.

Quote:
{21:2} No mention comes to them anew from their Lord except that they listen to it while they are at play

I suggest,
{21:2} Whenever comes to them a new reminder from their Lord, they but listen to it as they play.

Quote:
{21:3} With their hearts distracted. And those who do wrong conceal their private conversation, [saying], "Is this [Prophet] except a human being like you? So would you approach magic while you are aware [of it]?"

I suggest,
{21:3} With their hearts distracted. And those who do wrong keep secret [their] private conversation, "Is this [prophet] but a human like you? Would you approach magic while you see [it]?"
