Quote:
{26:167} They said, "If you do not desist, O Lot, you will surely be of those evicted."

I suggest,
{26:167} They said, "If you do not desist, O Lot, you will surely be [one] of the expelled."

Quote:
{26:168} He said, "Indeed, I am, toward your deed, of those who detest [it].

I suggest,
{26:168} He said, "Indeed, I am, toward your deed, of the detesters."

Quote:
{26:169} My Lord, save me and my family from [the consequence of] what they do."

The interjection is unnecessary. I suggest,
{26:169} "My Lord, save me and my family from what they do."

Quote:
{26:173} And We rained upon them a rain [of stones], and evil was the rain of those who were warned.

The interjection is better included as an explanation, i.e.,
{26:173} And We rained upon them a rain (of stones). How wretched the rain of the warned!

Quote:
{26:174} Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
{26:175} And indeed, your Lord - He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.

I suggest, as before,
{26:174} Indeed, in that is a sign, but most of them have not been believers.
{26:175} And verily, [it is] your Lord [who] is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
