Quote:
{29:46} And do not argue with the People of the Scripture except in a way that is best, except for those who commit injustice among them, and say, "We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you. And our God and your God is one; and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him."

I suggest,
{29:46} And do not argue with the People of the Book except in the way that is most beautiful, except [with] those who did injustice among them, and say, "We believe in what has been sent down to us and sent down to you; and our God and your God is One; and we are to Him submitting (Muslims)."

Quote:
{29:47} And thus We have sent down to you the Quran. And those to whom We [previously] gave the Scripture believe in it. And among these [people of Makkah] are those who believe in it. And none reject Our verses except the disbelievers.

I suggest,
{29:47} And thus We have sent down to you the Book. And those to whom We [previously] gave the Book believe in it. And among these [people of Mecca] are those who believe in it. And none disacknowledge Our signs except the disbelievers.

Quote:
{29:48} And you did not recite before it any scripture, nor did you inscribe one with your right hand. Otherwise the falsifiers would have had [cause for] doubt.

I suggest,
{29:48} And you have not been reciting before it any scripture, nor inscribing it with your right hand; then the detractors would have doubted.

Quote:
{29:49} Rather, the Quran is distinct verses [preserved] within the breasts of those who have been given knowledge. And none reject Our verses except the wrongdoers.

I suggest,
{29:49} Nay, it (the Quran) is clear signs in the bosoms of those given knowledge. And none disacknowledge Our signs except the wrongdoers.
