Quote:
{22:52} And We did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he spoke [or recited], Satan threw into it [some misunderstanding]. But God abolishes that which Satan throws in; then God makes precise His verses. And God is Knowing and Wise.

I suggest,
{22:52} And never did We send before you any messenger or prophet but that when he wished, Satan cast into his wish. But God promptly abolishes what Satan casts; then God makes precise His signs. And God is much Knowing, very Wise.

Quote:
{22:53} [That is] so He may make what Satan throws in a trial for those within whose hearts is disease and those hard of heart. And indeed, the wrongdoers are in extreme dissension.

I suggest,
{22:53} [That is] so that He may make what Satan casts a trial for those in whose hearts is a disease and those hard of heart. And verily, the wrongdoers surely are in extreme dissension.

"abolish" is an excellent choice of words.
