Quote:
{21:48} And We had already given Moses and Aaron the criterion and a light and a reminder for the righteous

I suggest,
{21:48} And We had given Moses and Aaron the Discernment and an illumination and a reminder for the watchful [of God].

Quote:
{21:49} Who fear their Lord unseen, while they are of the Hour apprehensive.

Excellent translation. But "while" is unnecessary then the feeling in the following sentence does not contradict the feeling in the the previous. I suggest,
{21:49} Who fear their Lord unseen, and they are of the Hour apprehensive.

Quote:
{21:50} And this [Quran] is a blessed message which We have sent down. Then are you with it unacquainted?

I suggest,
{21:50} And this [Quran] is a reminder, blessed, which We have sent down. Are you then of it unrecognizing?
