Another set of verses that are particularly beautiful in Arabic but whose beauty cannot be translated!

Quote:
{25:53} And it is He who has released [simultaneously] the two seas, one fresh and sweet and one salty and bitter, and He placed between them a barrier and prohibiting partition.

I suggest,
{25:53} And it is He who let flow freely the two bodies of water: This one is sweet and palatable and this one is bitter salt, and He placed between them a barrier and an impassable ban.

Quote:
{25:54} And it is He who has created from water a human being and made him [a relative by] lineage and marriage. And ever is your Lord competent [concerning creation].

I suggest,
{25:54} And it is He who has created from water a human and made him [a relative by] lineage and marriage. And ever is your Lord powerful.
