I suggest,
{24:63} Do not make calling the Messenger among yourselves as calling each other. Certainly, God knows those of you who slip away, hiding behind [others]. So let those beware who dissent from his order, lest should hit them turmoil or should hit them a painful torment.

It is to be noted that the third person pronoun in يخالفون عن أمره (dissent from his order) can very well refer to God or to the Prophet (PBUH). If it refers to God, the h in "his order" should be capitalized. I left it uncapitalized in order to cover both interpretations.
