{22:36} And the camels and cattle We have appointed for you as among the symbols of God; for you therein is good. So mention the name of God upon them when lined up [for sacrifice]; and when they are [lifeless] on their sides, then eat from them and feed the needy and the beggar. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may be grateful.

I suggest,
{22:36} And the fleshy camels - We set them up for you as among the rites of God; for you therein is good. So mention the name of God over them, arrayed; then when their sides have become ready (slaughtered), then eat from them and feed the contented one and the suppliant. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may thank.

Quote:
{22:37} Their meat will not reach God, nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify God for that [to] which He has guided you; and give good tidings to the doers of good.

I suggest,
{22:37} Their meat will not reach God, nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify God for what He has guided you [to]; and herald glad tidings to the benevolent.
