Quote:
{26:182} And weigh with an even balance.

I like a more literal translation,
{26:182} "And weigh with the straight justice."
P.S. The word القسطاس is the origin of the word justice ;)

Quote:
{26:183} And do not deprive people of their due and do not commit abuse on earth, spreading corruption.

I suggest,
{26:183} "And do not depreciate for people their things, and do not perpetrate in the land, corrupting."

Quote:
{26:184} And fear He who created you and the former creation."

I suggest,
{26:184} "And watch out for Whom created you and the former generations."
