I suggest,
{21:45} Say, "I only warn you through the revelation." But the deaf do not hear the call when they are warned.

Quote:
{21:46} And if [as much as] a whiff of the punishment of your Lord should touch them, they would surely say, "O woe to us! Indeed, we have been wrongdoers."

Excellent translation, except I'd rather translate عذاب as "torment" instead of punishment, which better translates عقاب.

Quote:
{21:47} And We place the scales of justice for the Day of Resurrection, so no soul will be treated unjustly at all. And if there is [even] the weight of a mustard seed, We will bring it forth. And sufficient are We as accountant.

I suggest,
{21:47} And We put the equity scales for the Day of Resurrection, so no soul is wronged at all. And if there be the weight of a seed of mustard, We bring it. And sufficient are We for reckoners.
