Quote:
{21:55} They said, "Have you come to us with truth, or are you of those who jest?"

I suggest,
{21:55} They said, "Have you come to us with truth, or are you among the jesting?"

Quote:
{21:56} He said, "[No], rather, your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth who created them, and I, to that, am of those who testify.

I suggest,
{21:56} He said, "Rather, your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth who created them, and I, to that, am among the testifying."

Quote:
{21:57} And [I swear] by God, I will surely plan against your idols after you have turned and gone away."

I suggest,
{21:57} "And by God, I will surely foil your idols after you go away turning your backs."

Quote:
{21:58} So he made them into fragments, except a large one among them, that they might return to it [and question].

I suggest,
{21:58} Then he made them into shatters, except a large one among them, that they might to it refer.
