{25:47} And it is He who has made the night for you as clothing and sleep [a means for] rest and has made the day a resurrection.

I suggest,
{25:47} And it is He who has made the night for you a garment and sleep a rest and made daylight a resurrection.

Quote:
{25:49} That We may bring to life thereby a dead land and give it as drink to those We created of numerous livestock and men.

I suggest,
{25:49} That We may bring to life thereby a dead land and give it as drink, out of what We created, numerous livestock and people.

Quote:
{25:50} And We have certainly distributed it among them that they might be reminded, but most of the people refuse except disbelief.

I suggest,
{25:50} And We have certainly distributed it among them that they may contemplate, but most of the people refuse but disbelieve.
