{28:78} He said, "I was only given it because of knowledge I have." Did he not know that God had destroyed before him of generations those who were greater than him in power and greater in accumulation [of wealth]? But the criminals, about their sins, will not be asked.

I suggest,
{28:78} He said, "Verily, I was only given it because of knowledge I have." Did he not know that God did destroy before him of the generations those who were sturdier than him in strength and more in accumulation? But about their sins the criminals are not asked.

Quote:
{28:79} So he came out before his people in his adornment. Those who desired the worldly life said, "Oh, would that we had like what was given to Qarun. Indeed, he is one of great fortune."

I suggest,
{28:79} So he came out before his people in his adornment. Those who want [this] the nearest life said, "Oh, would there be for us like what was given to Qaaroon (Kora). Verily, he surely has great luck."
